Nokia will launch a television in India, according to a joint announcement with the retailer Flipkart. It will be completely built in the country and probably limited to that market.
Until now, we only knew that the Nokia Smart TV will have JBL Audio, but today it was certified by the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) with a 55 ”Ultra HD 4K panel.
According to a report, the 55-inch TV will boot Android Pie and come with Google Play Store preinstalled. It will also have smart dimming technology that should offer better contrast with deeper blacks thanks to an algorithm, similar to what other manufacturers call local dimming or micro darkening.
Nokia TV is expected to launch in early December and should be a competition for OnePlus TV, Mi TV, and Motorola TV. Smartphone brands that turn to television are probably unusual events, but that is a way to capitalize on the growing market for broadcast services.
