LG has teamed up with German lens manufacturer Schneider-Kreuznach to provide lenses for LG's mobile phone cameras. The upcoming Shine handset will be the first handset to feature a Schneider-Kreuznach lens.
Schneider-Kreuznach is well known for its high quality camera lenses and it is the first time the manufacturer has partnered with a mobile phone company. LG hopes the partnership will strengthen its position in the high-end mobile phone market.
The agreement will include joint branding as well as technical certification.
