Nokia and Flipkart is gearing up to launch a smart TV running Android 9.0 Pie operating system soon in India. While there is no confirmation as to when the Nokia TV will be launched in India, it seems the launch is near as the Nokia TV with model number 55CAUHDN has received certification from Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). The BIS certification confirms that the TV will be of 55-inch size.
As far as the audio is concerned, the upcoming Nokia TV will be powered by JBL. Sources also revealed that Nokia smart TV will come with Intelligent Dimming technology. Somewhat similar to local dimming or micro dimming, the technology is said to tackle darks and lights in relatively better way. The technology is said to result in better contrast and deep Black levels. In another words, it optimises picture contrast quality in real time to offer better contrast.
For those unaware, Flipkart has entered into a strategic relationship with Nokia that gives it the right to use Nokia brand for smart TVs in India. Interestingly, Flipkart also has its own smart TV range under its private label, MarQ by Flipkart. In a statement, Flipkart also said that as part of the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative, it will facilitate the manufacturing and distribution of Nokia branded smart TVs as well as manage end-to-end sales to create thousands of new jobs.
