"Camera phone use is ubiquitous and through our partnership with Bell we can now combine top-tier mobile phone service with our extensive photography expertise."

Henry's will offer six smartphone models selected for their superior camera capabilities, including the Sony Xperia Z2, Samsung's Galaxy S5 and the all new HTC One (M8).
