INTRO: Following the launch of the Nokia Streaming Box 8000 earlier this month, StreamView GmbH, the official licensee of Nokia Android TVs, set top boxes and DAB+ radios in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region, has unveiled 7 new Nokia Smart LED TV models, including a top-of-the-line 75-inch 4K Ultra HD unit. The rest of the lineup includes a 32-inch Full HD model at the entry-level and a 43-inch, 50-inch, 55-inch, 58-inch and 65-inch 4K models at the more premium end of the spectrum.
Specifications and Features
As mentioned already, only the 32-inch model comes with a Full-HD (1920 x 1080) LED panel with a brightness up to 250 nits, while the remainder feature 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) LED panels with a maximum brightness of 320 nits. All of them have 178-degree viewing angles and support HDR10. In addition, the 4K models also support Dolby Vision.
All the devices also accompany stereo speakers, but while the 32-inch model sports dual 6W units, the 43, 50, 55 and 58-inch TVs accompany 2x10W units. The two largest models have dual 12W speakers. All the TVs will have support for Dolby Digital Plus, but the 32-inch model will miss out on DTS Surround support.
On the software side of things, they’re going to all run Android 9 out-of-the-box, and like most smart TVs, also will support multiple traditional TV input options, including terrestrial antenna, satellite, and cable-based connections using the built-in triple tuner. Under-the-hood hardware includes an ARM CA55 Quad-Core CPU and therefore the Mali470 MP3 GPU alongside 8GB of storage. While the 4K models accompany 1.5GB of RAM, the 32-inch model gets just 1GB.
Price and Availability
The new Nokia Smart TVs start at €399.90 (~Rs. 35,000) for the 32-inch model and go up to €1,399.90 (~Rs. 1.23 lakh) for the 75-inch model. They will be available in select European countries and are unlikely to launch in India any time soon. Even if they are doing , they’re unlikely to be launched by StreamView, as long as branding rights for Nokia Android TV devices in India are currently controlled by Flipkart.
