Believe it or not: Nokia is selling… TV

Tram Ho

When you think of Nokia, most people will think of brick phones, or smartphones with rugged designs – and certainly not TVs. However, that could all be about to change.

The Finnish phone brand has partnered with Austrian company Streamview to produce a new series of low-end QLED TVs ranging in size from 43 to 70 inches.

According to flatpanelshd 's source, the Nokia-branded TV set will come with a built-in subwoofer, quad-core processor, three HDMI 2.0 ports, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth features, Chromecast support, and mode Integrated games. Users will also get 8GB of memory for recording live TV shows.

Having Chromecast built into the TV makes a lot of sense, as the new Nokia QLED will also have Android TV as its operating system. This gives users access to thousands of channels and apps, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney Plus and more.

But, an interesting fact is that despite being described as 'QLED', the Nokia TV series have screens that use classic LCD panels, not LED panels. However, the company has coated a film of Quantum Dot (Quantum Dot) to create a higher level of brightness.

That's not surprising, of course, as Chinese TV brand TCL did much of the same with its low-end 5-Series QLED TVs in 2020. It's clearly a way for Nokia to reduce production costs. , aimed at mass users, while still providing impressive display quality (than traditional LCD).

And Nokia's new TVs will start at $750 for the 43-inch model, $960 for the 55-inch model, and $1050 for the 58-inch model. The "top-of-the-range" 70-inch model alone will cost $1,800.

This isn't the first time Nokia has produced a QLED TV, but the new lineup marks the first time the Finnish brand will sell its kit outside of Europe. The first Nokia-branded QLED TVs went on sale in Europe last year, but Streamview hopes these low-end options will bring Quantum Dot technology to the masses.

However, let's hope that Nokia's product can overcome the shortcomings of other low-end TVs in the same price range, such as the relatively low HDR brightness when compared to mainstream 4K TV models. Currently.
