The leading supplier of digital equipment Canon is looking for a partner in the production of smartphones, with which it will be possible to cooperate in the field of designing mobile cameras.

This is stated on Gizchina with reference to an insider Digital Chat Station.

According to the source, we are talking about establishing cooperation following the example of Hasselblad, Zeiss and Leica, which in recent years have achieved remarkable success in cooperation with smartphone manufacturers from China.

Currently, there is no information on which manufacturer of gadgets the company cooperates with. It is only known that a number of companies already cooperating with other brands are excluded from the list of applicants. We are talking about Vivo, Oppo, OnePlus and Xiaomi. Samsung, Apple, Sony, Asus, Google, Huawei, Honor, Nothing, Motorola and Realme remain uninvolved in the collaboration. According to experts, the first three of this list of companies are unlikely to agree to cooperate with Canon.

There is also no information on what principles the cooperation of manufacturers is planned: whether Canon will take over the full-fledged development of smartphones, or will deal with only minor adjustments to color filters and optimization.

Recall, the Chinese company Xiaomi has received a patent for lie detection technology that can be integrated into a mobile device.
