Flipkart, an e-commerce conglomerate owned by Walmart, has launched the first ever Nokia branded smart TV in India. The smart TV is the only smart TV ever designed by Nokia and is called the ‘Nokia 55CAUHDN’.
Vipul Mehrotra, Flipkart’s VP of Nokia brand partnerships, adds, “Flipkart’s understanding of the needs and behaviors of Indian consumers, and the power of its reach, will help it make Nokia branded smart TVs accessible and affordable.”
The smart TV includes some innovative, impressive specifications and is designed to deliver top-notch audio and video quality, while sticking to a budget.
The form factor of the new Smart TV is extremely slim, and features extremely thin bezels on three of its sides, however, the TV’s chin is considerably thick and there are no curved edges. Apart from bearing a striking similarity to the leading smart TVs, the Nokia smart TV also features a curved metal stand.
The Nokia smart TV housed a 55-inch LCD panel, capable of displaying 4K UHD resolutions, within a 1200:1 contrast ratio, with stark 178-degree viewing angles and 400 nits peak brightness. The display also supports HDR, Dolby Vision and a wide color gamma output. However, due to is only supporting a refresh rate of 60Hz, it is not recommended for gamers. The HDR quality is unclear at the moment with Tech enthusiasts speculating that, since the TV only provides a brightness of 400 nits it will lack full-array dimming.
As far as the internals go, the smart TV is powered by a quad-core SoC featuring 4x Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1Giga Heartz. The Graphics are powered by a in house Mali-450 GPU. As for the on board memory, the smart TV is strapped with 2.25 GB RAM, along with 16 gigabytes of onboard storage. Nokia 55CAUHDN also supports Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi.
For external connectivity, 3x HDMI ports and 2x USB ports are present and easily accessible. The TV is powered by the latest operating system, Android TV 9.0 which comes coupled with Netflix, YouTube and Hotstar applications as system applications.
The Nokia Smart TV will be available for purchase from December 10 on Flipkart, priced at $589 USD.
