HMD Consumer Who We Are

Aspiring to connect the world, powered by commitment & passion


Our story

When HMD was established in 2016, we stepped into the smartphone business with a drive that would kick things off rapidly. In just 11 months, our first 11 phones were released to customers around the world. Featuring 5 feature phones and 6 Android™ smartphones, it was a range that offered choice and reliability to every user segment.

At HMD we have a simple idea at the core of our operations: that mobile technology can enhance the everyday lives of everyone around the world.

Our wide selection of phones are a step toward to realizing that vision, but we go even further: our phones are made to get better for years to come, with a design that remains timeless and updates that improve security and performance. We ensure that these principles are inherent in each and every one of our phones.

This is what sets us apart in the mobile phones market – whichever phone is right for you, it will be a phone you can trust.

Ever since our first 11 phones in 2017, we have continued to expand every area of our phones portfolio, including dependable feature phones, reborn classics, first-time smartphones and smartphones fit for enterprises.
