And, think about this: "HMD is made up of veteran Nokia staff, and develops basic feature phones, as well as smartphones and tablets running on the Android platform. Manufacturing and distribution is performed by Foxconn's FIH Mobile division..."
And, read this too: "Nokia itself does not directly invest in HMD but has a board member representative, sets mandatory requirements, and receives royalty payments for patents"
Veteran staff!? Tell me more than 4 names! Maybe they shall bring Elop too!
Now, talking seriously - don't you think you shall apologize to me? C'mon, stop being so naive, the Nokia used to please us with great phones doesn't exist anymore, just a few smart guys with deep pockets.
KMB877, you still spread lies on purpose despite I've written a long post about relationship between HMD, Nokia and Foxconn, specially adressed to you. Would you please stop that or at least show us some proves to back your claims? Why is having phone manufactured in China wrong? Even E71 and 808 PureView I have are made in China. It has nothing to do with the brand or technology it uses.

Only blind guys hoping to see Nokia "made in Finland" soon. Let's face-it, very probably won't happen again ever.

Their big pockets will be filled with $ from royalties. So, what's not Chinese in conjunction with N6? Or the future N8?
Please illuminate us...
Don't get me wrong, I had a lot of Nokia devices, the last one E7 (after Elop announced the glorious future with Windows OS), and I never bought an Apple device. Be realistic, future Nokia cellphones have nothing Finnish inside.
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2017You've missed next Sony Xperia phone. As Sony phones are very smooth.I don't know how Xperia phones are anywhere else, but in US I had only bad experiences, including with their customer support and horrible service. Beside, they are NOT servicing out of guarantee devices. For my, no more Sony.
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2017It is not a Chinese company, it is Finnish
Not that there is anything wrong with being a Ch... more"mischa" was (unfortunately) relatively right.
The R&D, testing, marketing,fabrication and service it's 100% Chinese, nothing Finnish here. The Chinese guys (Foxconn and their subsidiaries) will pay Nokia (in Finland) royalties for using several patents, and for the Nokia brand.
At this time, no one can appreciate if the Nokia cellphones will be good or bad quality products. However, cracking walnuts with the display as we seen on YouTube, I don't think will influence to many future customers.
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2017Snapdragon 835 is made by Qualcomm not by Samsung.I guess he heard about the agreement between Samsung and Qualcomm regarding a future fabrication of SD835 into Samsung's facilities. Of course, the 835 belongs to Qualcom and of course, they will rip us with the royalties too...
Cassy O, 23 Jan 2017Dead? Of course not. Snapdragon 835 was made by Samsung. Nokia is just a phone and network ... moreI guess you want to say "Samsung is fabricating the SD835 for Qualcomm", witch means a totally different story...
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2017Your hatred towards chinese is showing
I'd rather have a chinese phone than a European phoneJust for my curiosity - can you tell me a single European made cellphone nowadays?
