If you thought the market for smart TVs was crowded, then wait for it to get a little more saturated. Nokia has reportedly been silently working on a smart TV running on Android and they think it’s about time to show the world. The TV’s sound is powered by an audio company, JBL.
Audio output has been an Achilles heel for most smart TVs over the years and Nokia hopes that this new partnership will help attract prospective buyers. With JBL’s famous acoustics, the sound has been promised to be as per its standards. This is under the support of features like Minimal Harmonic Distortion and Clear Vocal Tones.
According to reports, Nokia stands pretty confident about the TV’s appeal to sound enthusiasts with the American sound company behind its back. Besides, this will also be alongside Dolby Audio that will enable high-quality audio playback from the TV’s front speakers. Its surround sound will then be decoded with the help of DTS TruSurround.
Other than that, the TV will be a 55-inch with a display optimised to 4K resolution. It will run on Android 9 with users getting access to the Google Play Store. With companies known to be purely smartphone manufacturers coming up with TVs of their own, it’s only safe to imagine who is next in line.
Renders have already started leaking showing a portion of the 4K LED display, complemented by sleek bezels. This Nokia TV will then be the first-ever home entertainment gadget from the company’s stables. But the elephant in the room might be what the price is set to be.
