Then you should love Foxconn build quality... the Nokia you will see in those new phone are just the name, the rest it's made by Foxconn.
Has Nokia still got enough of their better employees, or have they potentially returned? I've been a Nokia lover for many, many years but I wouldn't assume that what they may get to produce now would be the equivalent of their trajectory, should they not have had interrupted production.
This is not the Nokia as you know it. This is HMD Global (which is comprised of some ex-Nokia people) contracting with Foxconn to make the hardware and licensing the "NOKIA" name from the current Nokia (the telecom giant).
HMD is affiliated to Nokia Corp still and all the Nokia R&D is available for it to use, primarily the camera tech. With Juha Alakarhu also back to Nokia, expect a camera beast.
The answer to the question you?ve all been asking | Nokia
I don't see anything publicly disseminated from either company regarding Nokia providing R&D assistance. The only information is about branding/design; do you happen to have some "additional" information?
With all the apps I need with Nokia build quality that I love. Haters gonna hate.

Chinese generic handset with NOKIA stamped on it, most likely. Prepare for disappointment.
I can just imagine what Nokia could do with a mature OS supporting all the latest hardware and their camera imaginations run wild, but personally I cant do android so i'll be watching from the sidelines.
I'll be honest. I'm not sure Nokia's edge in imaging is quite as large as some people think. Nokia's stuff is pretty solid, but then so is Samsung and Apple. Pretty much everyone these days has OIS, dual tone flash, laser focus, and other weird stuff. A couple of companies like Samsung has realized that a good camera doesn't rely so much on megapixels, but how the ones that are included are used. Also let's not forget Sony's sensor department...
If Nokia makes anything, it damn well better be solid. Even household names like Sony are struggling these days.
