- Nokia is coming up with a 43-inch model of its smart TV.
- The Nokia 43-inch smart TV will run Android 9 Pie-based Android TV.
- It will support Dolby Vision, Dolby Audio, and DTS TruSurround technologies.
Nokia TV is getting another model in India as early as this month. Having been teased multiple times previously, the Nokia TV 43-inch has been confirmed to launch on June 4. Nokia joined hands with Flipkart to manufacture and sell Nokia-branded smart televisions in India late last year. It was originally launched in the 55-inch model. This also means that the upcoming model will be available to buy only from Flipkart, likely from the launch date. After the launch of the 43-inch model, Nokia Smart TV will come to be available in two sizes.
Flipkart has listed the Nokia TV 43-inch model on its website, revealing the launch date and its features. While the upcoming model will borrow most features from the premium 55-inch model, it will be more affordable and take on the likes of Realme TV, Mi TV, and others. The pricing of the Nokia 43-inch model has not been revealed yet, of course, but it would cost around Rs 30,000, per previous rumours. The price of about Rs 30,000 may make it hard for Nokia to sell its 43-inch TV in front of Realme TV that is priced at Rs 21,999 for the 43-inch model. The Nokia 55-inch model is priced at Rs 41,999.
Nokia's 43-inch TV will have ultra-thin bezels and Fluid Chrome Pedestal technology for producing "a perfect mix of brightness, contrast, and colour reproduction." There will be a 4K UHD panel that will support Dolby Vision and a wide colour gamut, as per the listing. It will feature JBL speakers tuned by Dolby Audio and DTS TruSurround. The upcoming Android TV will be based on Android 9 Pie and will support Google Play Store. Nokia's 43-inch TV is likely to have a Mali-450 GPU, 2.25GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. The connectivity options will include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI ports, USB ports, SPDIF, and more.
Since the upcoming TV model from Nokia will run Android TV, it will support major apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+ Hotstar, ZEE5, YouTube, and others. Most of them will also come preloaded on the app, along with their dedicated launch buttons on the bundled remote control. Users will also be able to sideload apps on the TV, given they are built for large screens.
