Sam Chin retired from Foxconn in 2012. That's 6 years ago. Up until 2012 he was chairman of the board ad FIH, and had a long experience of cooperating with Nokia Corporation Oyj.
What about board director Gregory Lee, the former president and CEO of Samsung Electronics? Are HMD Korean, perhaps? Are HMD a daughter-company of Samsung according to you now? Or what about board director and CEO Florian Seiche from HTC?
You need to stop your racism and propaganda and start understanding that HMD Global Oyj is a Finnish company, located on the Nokia campus in Finland, with Nokia veterans, in close cooperation with Nokia, designing and developing their own products, of which they outsource the manufacturing.

Listen to yourself. You've been a Nokia Hater from day 1. Don't judge the company by one employee becoming Chinese or another being Indian. If that's your argument,then Google and Microsoft are Indian. Get a life.
Carol, 12 Feb 2018I think HMD is actually a Nokia branch. They just formed another Brand so they cannot be affec... moremy thoughts are almost the same, making a separate company for their mobile division is profitable in many ways, like Real Nokia won't lose it's shareholders if anything goes wrong with the relaunch of Nokia MObiles,
This will give a great tax benefit also. Basically my investing in creating a new company(one-time investment) they saved a lot of tax(year on year) and also saved the risk of losses.
If anything fails, HMD will be responsible for failure and Real Nokia will stay safe an so will the shareholders.
Although i believe once Nokia gains enough profit, it will eventually end up absorbing HMD(i guess that can happen by 2020-2025).

Sam Chin is Chairman of the Board at HMD Global and has more than 30 years of marketing, sales and operational experience in the global computer and electronics industries.
From 2003 until 2012 Sam served as Chairman and CEO of Foxconn International Holdings, a subsidiary of multinational electronics contract manufacturer Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Ltd
Any questions? Yes, in fact HMD is chinese. But PR making uneducated people to imagine it's Finnish. HMD just do marketing and sales. Anything else doind Foxconn. And control HMD. History similar to OnePlus. It pretended to be startup and independent manufactturer.
This tells to me that people value the good OS update rate, the HMD has gurantee to their phones. Hopefully other companies follow the example, but so far only Apple and Google seems to be in the same gategory in that aspect...
pikapoo, 13 Feb 2018and sony keeps moving backwardBecause the Sony quality is top notch the user no need to change phone every few years or faster. I wish Nokia can learn from Sony, even it has a sealed battery Nokia should also adopt Qnovo battery charging technology to prolong the battery lifespan and also bring the highest waterproof grade (IP65/IP68) like Sony did! Finally, the consumer can seldom change a new phone.
Karl, 13 Feb 2018An example of how a reused brand is more profitable than a new qualified one with quality and ... moreI own a Nokia 8. The camera are much better after the updates than was out of the box. The camera might not b the best in the segment, but neither is it an under performer in anyway.So now I have a Premium phone that feels premium to hold as well as use, with a good camera with best natural pictures and one of the best surround sound audio recording, with a price much cheaper to it's competitors, and actually gives timely software updates and upgrades. The only thing I can complain now is it not being waterproof. Otherwise its worth the buck in any market. And remember its security isn't compromised.

Hope this gets their spirits up and motivates them to get back on the pedestal. Truth be told, they can be miles ahead of the likes of huawei, lg, and even samsung if they just play it smart. They were after all at the top of the food chain years back.
And i'd be more than willing to buy a nokia than a huawei or lg.
pikapoo, 13 Feb 2018and sony keeps moving backwardwhy so much hate on sony
xeroxxxxxxxxx, 13 Feb 2018That's how we define sheep.... Although it's only a chinese wolf carrying Nokia skin you stil... moreThat's what they themselves were saying at the beginning. HMD make the phones and Nokia slaps its name on them and has some say about the quality. That's it. But what is it to you if people want some nostalgia?
xeroxxxxxxxxx, 13 Feb 2018That's how we define sheep....
Although it's only a chinese wolf carrying Nokia skin you stil... moreNot at all. Back in the day, people chose a Nokia because they made good phones. Today, people do it for the exact same reason, not always because they know it, but just because the brand has a really good and deserved reputation.
By the way, HMD is not more chinese than Apple.
xeroxxxxxxxxx, 13 Feb 2018That's how we define sheep.... Although it's only a chinese wolf carrying Nokia skin you stil... moreTrue, iPhone is made in China, so literally it is China wolf inside carrying an Apple skin, but still there are iSheeps buying it and believe iPhone is the best.
We'll wait for some couple of years and they will be on top spot :D
great work NOKIA :) FOREVER FAN! NUMBER1!!
neilgonzales, 13 Feb 2018I think Nokia is rising. Many people are still in love with the brand.That's how we define sheep....
Although it's only a chinese wolf carrying Nokia skin you still think it's Nokia
Seriously, they still have a place on most people. Even Lumia was sold at 10.5million back then. Yea i know, MS sukks!!!!. I really wish Nokia didnt go that route.
