BARCELONA, SPAIN—We're at Mobile World Congress, where a ton of new smartphones are launching, but MWC is also serving as the debut of a brand-new Android OEM. That company is HMD, a new Finnish upstart that seems like it was purpose-built to undo the damage Microsoft did to the Nokia smartphone brand. The company is made up of a ton of old-guard Nokia employees and has licensed the Nokia brand for smartphones.
Unfortunately, HMD didn't announce a high-end flagship smartphone at its MWC event. It did bring the Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3, which all start with a Snapdragon 430 and work their way down the spec totem pole from there. This is a brand-new OEM, though, so a look at the Nokia 6 will help us get to know HMD a bit better.
