The crowded market for smart TVs is going to get more crowded. A report by the tech website Digit reveals that Nokia will be launching a smart TV that runs on Android. It will be marketed as a Flipkart exclusive, and the sound system will be powered by JBL Audio.

Audio output remains the Achilles heel of most smart TVs, and Nokia hopes that its superior acoustics will help the decision their way in the minds of prospective buyers. The sound tuning is as per JBL’s standards, and Flipkart has revealed that Nokia’s new offering will come with features like Minimal Harmonic Distortion and Clear Vocal Tones.

The American audio hardware manufacturer JBL has a reputation for crafting speakers that offer superior fidelity, and a high range of sounds. The Nokia TV will stand to profit from JBL’s experience on this front, enhancing the TV viewing experience for users. Dolby Audio and DTS TruSurround will enable high-quality audio playback from the TV’s front speakers. The Nokia TV will be able to decode surround sound with the help of the DTS TruSurround.

The 55-inch TV will have a display, optimized to 4k resolution. Android 9 will be the proprietary OS, and the device will have access to the Google Play Store. The leaked renders show a portion of the 4k LED display, embellished with sleek bezels. The Nokia TV will become the first home entertainment gadget from the stables of the Finnish tech company.
