At this facility not only imaging research will be conducted but some latest technologies like VR and AR would also be developed for Huawei. Which means that we should expect more Huawei-Leica products very soon.

The lab’s establishment is the result of the vision and support of Ren Zhengfei, CEO of Huawei and Dr. Andreas Kaufmann, majority shareholder and chairman of the advisory board of Leica Camera AG.

Named After Max Berek

The R&D center is named in remembrance of Max Berek, the German pioneer of microscopy and creator of the first Leica lenses, who was also responsible for the optical design of more than 20 lenses for the legendary 35mm camera invented and built by Oskar Barnack.
