2019 was an exciting year for smartphone manufacturers in India. The year saw many of them – for the first time – venture into areas other than core smartphones and accessories. While the likes of Panasonic and Sony have experience with both the industries, they have found success in only one of these areas. 2019 saw a trend where companies like OnePlus, Motorola, and Nokia venturing into the Smart TV space in the Indian market.
While the success of these ventures is yet to be ascertained, there is no denying that the arrival of these brands to the competitive Smart TV arena has been good for consumers. Nokia was probably the last major brand to jump on to the Smart TV bandwagon when it launched its first Smart TV back in December 2019 in a single 55-inch variant. Now, the company seems to be in the mood to expand its portfolio of products if we are to believe a report by our usually trustworthy friends at NokiaPowerUser. In fact, Flipkart — which was the exclusive retailer for the 55-inch Nokia TV has posted a teaser for the new launch.

According to the report, the new TV will be a more affordable version of the larger 55-inch TV that Nokia launched three months ago. This one, like you now know, will get a smaller 43-inch panel, which will lead to a significant reduction in the cost. While we do not know the complete specifications of this new Nokia Smart TV, which can be expected is that it will come with the same features as its bigger, more expensive sibling. This means the TV will come with JBL branded speakers and will feature support for Intelligent Dimming, DTS TruSurround, and Dolby Audio. The Smart TV will also run Android TV and come with support for Google Assistant.
