STRAX and HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, have formed a global partnership to jointly develop and distribute an exciting range of new Nokia-branded accessories, including the recently-announced Nokia Portable Wireless Speaker and protective cases for some of the newest Nokia smartphones. STRAX, the mobile accessories specialist, in partnership with HMD Global, will design, develop and manufacture Nokia-branded accessories, and distribute the range internationally.
HMD Global is the only major European mobile phone brand, delivering Nokia smartphones, feature phones and accessories across the globe.
“At HMD Global, we have founded our business on strategic partnerships – working with the best in the industry allows us to provide modern mobile technology accessible to everyone and deliver excellent experiences across the portfolio that you would expect from Nokia phones and accessories. As we further develop our accessories portfolio, we needed a partner that combines deep consumer market insights, design capabilities and a truly innovative spirit. All this, combined with STRAX’s ability to work with multiple distribution channels across the globe, makes this the perfect partnership. Stay tuned for new accessory announcements in the coming months,” says Alex Lambeek, Head of Accessories at HMD Global.
“It’s truly exciting to be working with HMD Global across such a trusted brand in phones and accessories. Having formerly worked directly with Nokia as their largest accessories distributor in Europe, it is energizing and thrilling to be working in partnership with HMD Global with this iconic brand,” says Gudmundur Palmason, CEO of STRAX AB.
