German optics company Zeiss is popular for its digital cameras and its collaborations with smartphone companies. The brand name can often be seen on smartphone cameras such as Nokia, Huawei, Sony, and we might start seeing it on more phones soon.
The Chinese subsidiary of the company called Zeiss China partnered with Vivo to power its X60 series of smartphones. This was done to expand Zeiss’s digital footprint in the smartphone market, which is part of the company’s bigger plans.
