Nokia seems to be preparing for the launch of its new Smart TV. The company has teamed up with e-commerce giant Flipkart to bring this smart TV to the masses. As part of the preparation, the company has posted a dedicated, “Coming soon” landing page for the product. This page confirms previous reports anticipating the launch. As noted previously, the upcoming product will feature a 43-inch panel. In addition, the company also confirmed the design and some features of the Nokia Smart TV. Now, let’s take a closer look at the Smart TV.
Taking a closer look at the landing page, we get an official render for the upcoming product. Nokia also confirmed that the upcoming Smart TV will feature JBL speakers. The design indicates impressive thin bezels on the top and the sides of the product. However, the bottom bezel is considerably thick to accommodate the JBL speaker. This bezel also comes with a silver strip with the Nokia branding in the middle.
The 43-inch Nokia smart TV as seen on the website follows the same design for the screen as well as the stand, as the already available 55-inch model. There seems to be a sleek looking JBL soundbar attached to the TV which was also present on the larger model. While there are no specifications listed, except for “Sound by JBL”, the 43-inch model is expected to have similar specifications as the 55-inch model currently available on Flipkart for Rs. 41,999.
Talking about the 55-inch model, it is a 4K smart TV that runs Android 9. Carrying the model number 55CAUHDN, the TV comes with an LED panel with a peak brightness of 400 nits, a quad-core processor, a Mali-450 MP GPU, 2.25GB of RAM, and 16GB storage. Since it is an Android TV, you get the Google Play Store and support for apps like Netflix, YouTube, Hotstar and Prime Video. It also has Chromecast built-in. Talking about the sound, it comes with two 12W speakers and support for Dolby Audio and DTS TruSurround. The 55CAUHDN has three HDMI ports, a USB 3.0 port, and a USB 2.0 port. It has Bluetooth v5.0 as well.
Whether the 43-inch model will also have a 4K (3840×2160 pixels) panel or the company will drop the resolution down to full HD (1920×1080 pixels) remains to be seen. But, it is likely that the company will retain the 4K experience for the 43-inch as well. It is also expected to run Android and have pretty much the same specifications.
