Juho Sarvikas is HMDs Chief Product Officer, hes behind the latest crop of Nokia phones. He decided to share part of the development process by tweeting out photos of early Nokia 8 Sirocco prototypes, as well as Nokia 1 and 8110 4G.
The Sirocco was code named Avenger mostly because the team thought it sounded cool rather than because it was seeking vengeance. Sarvikas is especially proud of how the side bezels turned out.

Here are the Nokia 1 and the banana phone too. Notice how the finish on some of these looks layered – a definite sign of 3D printing. As Sarvikas says Modeling and early prototyping is key for success.
