Nokia will introduce its second model of Smart TV on Flipkart on June 4. Now, ahead of the official announcement, the upcoming Nokia Smart TV 43-inch variant has been listed on the e-commerce website with few key details. As we had reported last time, the 43-inch model will also sport the same bezel-less design from the 55-inch model and it will include the JBL soundbar at the front-bottom.
The Flipkart listing now confirms that the upcoming Nokia Smart TV 43-inch will also include a 4K UHD display like the 55-inch model. It will come powered by an official Android 9.0 TV OS with a built-in Chromecast. The company is set to introduce a 43-inch model on Flipkart on June 4. The new variant of the Nokia Smart TV is going to price in the range between Rs 31,000 – Rs 34,000.
The new Nokia smart TV is expected to be more affordable, by moving to a smaller 43-inch panel. It will retain the 4K UHD resolution, with support for Dolby Vision HDR and a wide color gamut. It will sport an LED panel. On the audio front, it will have Sound by JBL, along with Dolby Audio and DTS TruSurround for a three-dimensional 5.1 channel surround sound experience.
The teaser images also suggest a design very similar to the first one, with very slim bezels on the side and a classy chrome stand for table mounting. It will run on the latest Android TV 9.0 operating system to bring access to the Google Play store, with more than 5,000 apps and games along with OTT platforms. Other expected features include built-in Google Assistant as well as Chromecast Ultra for 4K content streaming. The older model did support Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney Plus Hotstar, and YouTube out of the box, so we expect those to be present as well.
The Smart TV market in India has been booming recently, with multiple new players joining the fray. This competition has also brought down the prices of offerings, with high-end features such as a smart operating system, 4K resolution, HDR, Dolby Audio no longer being reserved for expensive televisions.
The 55-inch Nokia 4K TV price in India starts from Rs 41,999. It is exclusively available in India via Flipkart. The television ships with an Android 9 Pie-based Android TV operating system on the software end. The Google Play Store comes built-in letting users download more apps for their TV. The 4K TV draws its power from a PureX quad-core processor with 2.25GB of RAM.
The 55-inch Nokia TV comes with features like the Intelligent Dimming technology, Dolby Vision, and HDR 10. The company claims that the TV can deliver content that is brighter, sharper, and more vivid. It is backed by Dolby Audio, Dolby Digital and DTS TruSurround technologies. The TV also features bottom-firing speakers, which the company says can offer users powerful audio.
