HMD is Finnish, but AFAIK they have zero own software development in Finland. Not sure whether it is public knowledge where they buy the SW from. Of course the Google part is known, but I assume the application reported here is not from Google.

Yeah. HMD is just license holding company with nothing but lots of managers as employees. All of their software development is outsourced to Finnish and foreign companies.

I know some of those people (in Finland) who worked in these outsourcing companies, but they just worked on the more high level components like Android apps etc. Not with bootloaders or OS images.

The firmware for my 7 Plus is littered with packages named "com.evenwell.*", including the very aggressive powersaving "feature".
