Flipkart to launch six Nokia Smart TVs with integrated Onkyo soundbar in India tomorrow
Nokia is a nostalgic brand with enough brand value that allows it to license its name to others. While HMD Global handles smartphones under the Nokia brand, Flipkart handles smart TVs in India under the Nokia Smart TV branding. Nokia made its entry into the smart TV segment in India back in December 2019, and we expect to see more TVs launched tomorrow. We now have information relating to the six new TVs that Flipkart is launching tomorrow under the Nokia Smart TV brand.
Nokia already has three 4K TVs in its portfolio: 43CAUHDN, 55CAUHDN, and 65CAUHDN. Teasers on its official website indicate a launch scheduled for tomorrow, October 6, for a new range of smart TVs, although no other specifics have been shared.
According to our internal sources, the company is planning to expand this lineup with as many as six TVs:
- UHD: 43″, 50″, 55″, 65″
- FHD: 43″
- HD: 32″
The UHD/4K lineup is expected to come with a 3840 x 2160 resolution with HDR 10 support. Flipkart/Nokia will be calling the display technology as “MaxBrite Display” with micro-dimming and Pronto Focal AI Engine, as well as a 5000:1 contrast ratio. The maximum brightness would be 350 nits on the 43″ model, 380 nits on the 50″, 420 nits on the 55″, and 450 nits on the 65″ model. The TVs will come with an integrated Onkyo soundbar, featuring 30W speakers and 18W tweeters.
The FHD and HD lineup is expected to be a bit more humble. The maximum resolution on the 43″ FHD model would be 1920 x 1080, while that on the HD model would be 1366 x 768. Much like the 4K lineup, these two TVs will also come with a “MaxBrite Display” with micro-dimming and Pronto Focal AI Engine, although the contrast ratio is at 3000:1 and the maximum brightness would be at 325 nits on both. These TVs will also come with an integrated Onkyo soundbar, featuring 24W speakers and 15W tweeters.
We do not have information on the pricing or availability. Other reports mention an expected starting price of ₹21,999 for the base model, although we would advise just waiting for the launch tomorrow for a clearer picture. We also expect the TVs to run on Android TV.
