Nokia And HMD Global Relationship
The Nokia company may have been known for its mobile phones. However, it's worth noting that HMD Global has now acquired the licensing rights to the Nokia smartphone brand. Meaning, every Nokia Android that you will be seeing is made by HMD Global, and although Nokia will also help in the design and marketing of the new products, it is HMD Global who will be responsible for the manufacturing and distribution of the new Android smartphones. As per NokiaMob, Nokia will only be licensing its brand to HMD Global and in return, receive royalties for each device sold by HMD.
