Although Nokia is well-known as a company based in Finland, it makes its products all over the world, including in Brazil, China, Germany, Hong Kong and Mexico. It made its last phone in Finland in 2013.

As of 2014, Nokia has 10 factories based around the world, but most of its phone components are made in Asia. As part of its shift to becoming a Windows-based smartphone business, Nokia transferred most of its phone production to its Asian factories in 2013, as explained in an article by John Paczkowski. It’s possible to tell exactly where in the world a given Nokia phone was assembled by checking the seventh and eighth digits of the phone’s IMEI code, which is on the label of the phone’s battery case.
