Flipkart has tweeted saying “Introducing the @nokia #SmartTV with Sound By JBL, coming soon in a new dimension. ” One could be mistaken for thinking that Flipkart is suggesting that the 55-inch TV that was launched earlier will be back in stock. However, the “new dimension” in the tweet hints that we could get the TV in a different size. So why is the internet speculating that this could be a 43-inch TV? Well, Nokia power user claims that the TV launching will be a 43-inch one and will be priced at Rs 30,999.
Nokia launched the 55-inch Android Smart TV back in December 2019 and it was quite feature-rich when it launched. We expect the 43-inch variant of the TV to house the same specifications as its bigger sibling. Speaking of the specifications of the 55-inch Nokia TV, it runs on Android TV 9 out of the box with support for Netflix and Prime Videos. Running on Android TV, users also have access to the Play Store for their streaming services and apps needs. Coming to the panel, it has a 10-bit ADS panel with 400 nits of brightness. It covers 85-90% of 10-bit colour space. The TV also supports Dolby Vision which is Dolby’s object-based HDR rendering.
When it comes to audio, the Nokia Smart TV audio is powered by JBL with 24W of sound output. The sound tuning and equalizer are catered to by JBL. The TV has two full-range drivers, front-facing tweeters and down-firing mid and low range drivers. There is no separate woofer. The TV also supports Dolby Audio and DTS TruSurround. The 55-inch Nokia Smart TV runs on a quad-core processor coupled with 2.25GB RAM and 16GB storage.
All these features at 30,999 and 43-inch screen size may seem tempting. However, the Android TV market is heating up in the budget segment. Recently Kodak launched a bunch of new Android smart TVs all of which are running on Android TV 9 out of the box. One of the TVs is a 43-inch TV. Lets quickly highlight some of the specifications. The 43-inch TV boasts of a 4K resolution along with support for HDR 10 and Dolby Vision along with support for Wide Colour Gamut. It is priced at Rs 23,999. For audio, the TVs have 30 Watt speakers with support for DTS and Dolby Digital Plus.
Running on Android TV, the Kodak 43-inch TV brings with it support for all popular streaming services like Netflix, Prime Videos, Hotstar and more.
