With the recent announcement of its multi-brand portfolio strategy, HMD Global unlocks a new milestone. The company ,the largest European smartphone manufacturer, has started to manufacture 5G smartphones in Europe.

The first device to roll out of this new production line is the ultra tough and durable Nokia XR21. The device is also available for purchase by Enterprise Customers.

“We are thrilled to be manufacturing the Nokia XR21, our signature rugged 5G smartphone, in Europe. We are dedicated to investing in security, technology and manufacturing processes that make our devices more secure and longer lasting,” said Jean-Francois Baril, Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO of HMD Global.
