The factory is in Mainland China.

I am starting to get a bit irritated with the "HMD IS A CHINESE COMPANY!!!!!* comments. This is getting really ridiculous. Like, search it up for god sake, the info is in the web. You can't be that lazy.
Y'all going mad when u hear the word Chinese ffs most of ur phone's parts or even the full phone is made in china so I don't get the noise, only god knows what the US has on y'all
Jack, 22 Mar 2019Ha... ha... ha... So they, instead of use their own server to register the activation, the app... moreDid you even bother reading what they said on their blog ? Ffs phones that where made for the Chinese market have their servers in China and HND is obliged by the Chinese government to send those data there cause it's a rule but unfortunately some Nokia 7 plus got a bug which has been fixed and hmd said no sensitive data was sent in fact they used the word "trying" to send. I don't know why you re here b****ing about it, everything on u is Chinese
Nokia have already shared this controversy on their website.
I believe on Nokia HMD they have many previous nokia executuves and they have not joined HMD to spoil the most trusted brand Nokia.
Don't believe on bots commenting here and speculating things without knowing the info about this. As usual they will say "HMD is a chinese company" but they are wrong as always
Check here, nokia have shared the info about this incident and what data they collect and why with some nice infographics which is easy to understand.

https://medium.com/@roundedeverett/who-is-nokia-cb24ecbc52a9That blog doesn't tell as what data is shared it shows only the server which sends data. The blog is just speculating things about HMD without any evidence.
Tell me what about this announcement on MWC 2016 then?
HMD have many previous nokia executives and they are not their to spoil the the most trusted brand Nokia.
See the infographic which HMD have shared why and what data they collect.
About the mistake: this happens with every manufacturers and even apple recently have security issues and fixed later on so as HMD they already fixed the issue on february security patch 2019.

Anonymous, 22 Mar 2019Are you joking?No I'm not. We were all once dreamed of getting an Apple iPhone and they're always flagships. Not once they made midrange phones. Now that we're old, we should be getting 8xx SoC series phones. Not 6, not 4, only 8.
We should all buy iPhone, so that our data only get send to US, what a lame excuse to scared people from buying China made phone, same technic to ask country not to use Huawei for 5G facilities.
i rather President Xi getting my data than President Trump, is there a problem ?

Anonymous, 22 Mar 2019It's Finese based but owned by Chinese HMD I guessHMD is a Finnish company owned by no one but supported by Finnish and Indian people, HMD's phones are manufactured in FoxConn China and India tho
A lot of people embarrassing themselves with their comments. This is something all phones sold by China Telecom do. It is also something that chip makers (Qualcomm and MediaTek etc) all provide code for.
The sim-number and phone serial-number and the position sent to the Chinese server/government every time the screen is turned on, for many years, is more than enough information for the Chinese Government to have total control over the user! This is totally unacceptable, and proves that HMD Global can not be trusted and is too weak to say no when the Chinese Government "ask" them to help spy on their users!
