Confirmed: Nokia to launch its first smart TV in India on December 5

The buzz around Nokia-branded TVs coming to India has been prevalent since a month or so and now we have the official date of its launch. The Nokia-branded TVs will be launched in the country on December 5 in partnership with Walmart backed-e-commerce major Flipkart, which will be the exclusive seller for the new product category from Nokia .

This partnership between Nokia and Flipkart was announced earlier in November. Under the partnership, the e-tailer will facilitate manufacturing and end-to-end sales of Nokia-branded TV. The first Nokia-branded TV will feature sound quality powered by audio brand, JBL. “The partnership is backed by Flipkart’s consumer insights, which found that poor sound quality and experience is a major pain point for customers purchasing televisions,” said the company in a press statement.

Last week, it was suggested that Nokia will launch a TV in 50 inch-plus size. It is likely to sport 4K ultra-HD panel. The LED TV is said to run on Android 9.0 operating system and support Google Play Store. The same week also saw certification of the Nokia TV from Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) for a Nokia TV with model number 55CAUHDN. The BIS certification confirms that the TV will be of 55-inch size.

As per online reports, Nokia smart TV will come with Intelligent Dimming technology. The technology is said to result in better contrast and deep Black levels. In other words, it optimises picture contrast quality in real time to offer better contrast.

Last week, the company announced on Twitter that it is going to launch a new phone in December this year. The company, however, did not reveal the name of the upcoming device. According to some online reports, it is expected that the firm may launch Nokia 8.2. The speculation is based on the last year’s December 5 event where the company unveiled Nokia 8.1.
