The Finnish company says the handsets will be equipped with Zeiss cameras, “building on the shared history and expertise between Zeiss and Nokia smartphones.”

Before selling its cellphone business to Microsoft in 2013, top-end Nokia smartphones used Zeiss optics.

HMD Global CEO Arto Nummela said July 6 that Nokia fans “want a complete imaging experience … and, together with Zeiss, we’re delivering it — co-developed imaging excellence for all.”

In January, HMD announced the launch of Nokia 6 in China before selling globally, and has since announced the launch of two other smartphone models, the Nokia 3 and 5.
