Rumors: the partnership with Huawei has ended and Leica is currently looking for a new smartphone partner


There are multiple reports/rumors online that the partnership between Huawei and Leica has ended and Leica is currently looking for a new smartphone partner (Xiaomi/Honor/Sharp?):

In a separate tweet, the leaker also mentioned that the partnership between both companies has fallen from software and hardware input from Leica to just branding. We can deduce this to mean that there is practically no Leica technology in the upcoming Huawei P50 series phones and all we will be getting is the “Co-Engineered With Leica” tag line we are familiar with. This line will now merely denote that the phone has impressive cameras. (Gizmochina)

Announced: Sharp Aquos R6 smartphone with 22MP 1-inch sensor and Leica-branded f/1.9 Summicron lens

Is this how the future will look for most camera brands – making camera solution for the smartphone industry?
