A lready six years ago, a Finnish startup started the journey of bringing the Nokia brand back to the mobile phone market. HMD Global, the licensee of the Nokia phone and tablet brand, started its official business on December 1, 2016.

HMD Global is the Finnish company responsible for making Nokia phones, including beloved icons like the Nokia 3310, and new durable smartphones, including the Nokia XR20, built to survive anything life throws at it.

Jean-Francois Barila, Co-Founder, President and CEO of HMD Global Oy said: "Today I am especially proud to celebrate our 6th anniversary at HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones. What a fantastic journey it has been for all of us at the great HMD launch in Dubai at the beginning of 2017 since our meeting. There was a tremendous level of energy and passion created back then that continues to fuel us all even more strongly to fight in this challenging global market environment."

Every day we seize new business opportunities in the US, Europe, India, APAC or Africa. We invent new business models, such as the highly successful CIRCULAR, the world's first sustainability subscription-based platform.

We've reimagined our original product range from the Nokia 3310 to the Nokia 5710 Xpress Audio, bringing classic Nokia heritage and innovation to our fans. We introduced our most durable smartphone ever, the XR20, and our greenest devices in the X30 5G and G60 5G. We launched Circular, our revolutionary new subscription service with sustainability at its core. The launch of our first T20 tablet in 2020 exceeded customer expectations, and we are constantly expanding this category. We are seeing the proliferation of new enterprise services that continue to push the boundaries of IoT and security innovation.

Our mission to “Connect the World without Costing the Earth” has never been more relevant and inspiring to all of us

Thanks to our valuable strategic partners, we have much more to do, we put our customers at the center of all our activities, both in the consumer and corporate areas.

Therefore, today I would like to thank all members of our HMD family, our partners and our customers with great gratitude.

Always with passion and confidence.
