HMD Global is the private company where Nokia have no equity. As per the agreement signed between Nokia and HMD Global in 2014, the HMD Global holds the manufacturing rights of Nokia phones and tablets for a decade.
Keeping in view, these two agreements it will be challenging task for Nokia to keep their promise and bring out Android smartphones as well as tablets by the end of this Q4. Nokia did it, when we are kids. Let’s see how far it can succeed this time. Cheers for Nokia D1C.
