A few days back, Nokia announced that it is partnering with an Indian e-commerce giant Flipkart to launch a Nokia-branded Smart TV. And today, the company has unveiled the new Smart TV in the Indian market via a landing page on Flipkart. With Flipkart stepping into the scene, what it essentially means, is that the e-commerce giant will be playing a large part in this partnership role, from the manufacturing of the TV to its distribution, whereas Nokia (and not HMD Global), on the other hand, will only be responsbile for the licensing of the product.
Nokia Smart TV: Design and Display
The Nokia Smart TV comes with a 55-inch 4K UHD LED display with support for Dolby Vision, Intelligent Dimming Technology, HDR 10, and wide color gamut. In terms of design, the TV comes with a minimalist design that blends with the background and pretty bezel-less design that offers a seamless infinity-edge viewing experience. There is a chrome pedestal included with the TV to position it on a surface.
Nokia Smart TV: Performance
Under the hood, the Nokia Smart TV has the PureX quad-core processor running at its core, coupled with 2.25GB of RAM. It has bottom-firing speakers, which, combined with the JBL sound system deliver a distortion-free and clear sound. In addition to this, the TV also includes Dolby Audio, Dolby Digital, and DTS TruSurround technologies to offer a wide audio spectrum and immersive audio experience. Besides these enhancement features, the TV also uses Clear View technology and Clear Sound technology to reduce noise while streaming content.
On the software front, the TV runs on Android TV 9 and includes a built-in Chromecast to make it easier to cast content from a phone. Additionally, it offers support for Google Voice Assistant along with hotkeys for Netflix and YouTube so that users can spend more time on consuming content, and not on searching it.
Nokia Smart TV: Pricing and Availability
The Nokia Smart TV is priced at Rs 41,999. It will go on sale starting December 10, noon on Flipkart.
