Nokia is a mobile phone brand that many around the world are familiar with, but there are some markets in which it might be more recognized and popular than others. Over in the US where brands like Apple and Samsung dominate, it’s not hard to see why the Nokia brand might not be as a strong as it once was.

However HMD is hoping to change that because thanks to a couple of LinkedIn postings (via GSMArena), it looks like the company is trying to expand Nokia’s presence in the US by trying to post together a team that will help it grow. This includes an e-commerce lead, a product lead, and a technical manager, all of which seems to be about focusing activities in the US.

Of course exactly what will become of this remains to be seen, but it is clear that the company is trying to establish a stronger foothold in the US. So far HMD’s offerings have typically been of the low-mid range variety which is more appealing in emerging markets where cost is a primary factor when it comes to choosing a smartphone.

We have seen HMD try to launch more flagship-worthy handsets and last we heard, the company might have a new multi-camera flagship smartphone in the works that could cost around the $1,000 mark.
