As part of a partnership with Flipkart, Nokia has launched its first-ever smart television in India.
The Finnish tech giant's maiden offering takes on Xiaomi's popular Mi TV 4X with a 55-inch 4K LED screen, JBL acoustics with Dolby sound support, and Android TV interface. So, which one should you buy?
Here's our head-to-head comparison.
Design-wise, both TVs look pretty similar, featuring ultra-slim bezels and the non-curved display. However, considering the Nokia TV houses front-firing speakers, it has a seemingly prominent bottom section.
And though both models sport a 55-inch 4K LED screen, the Nokia TV offers improved picture quality thanks to Dolby Vision, Wide Color Gamut coverage, and "Intelligent Dimming" features.
Winner: Nokia TV.
The Mi TV 4X comes with dual 10W speakers along with support for DTS Tru Sound and Dolby Audio. In comparison, the Nokia rival packs more powerful 24W JBL-tuned speakers along with support for Dolby Audio and DTS TruSurround Sound. Winner: Nokia TV.
The Nokia TV is powered by a 1GHz PureX quad-core processor, 2.25GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage while the Mi TV is backed by a quad-core Amlogic Cortex A53 CPU, 2GB RAM and 8GB of built-in storage.
Further, both models run on Android TV 9 operating system and support the latest connectivity options as well as I/O ports.
Winner: Nokia TV.
The Nokia TV 55-inch is priced at Rs. 41,999 and it will go on sale exclusively via Flipkart on December 10. On the other hand, the Mi 4X 55-inch model costs Rs. 34,999 and is already up for grabs in the country.
With similar bezel-less designs, matching 4k screens, and nearly identical specifications, both models are, in fact, pretty similar.
However, with highlight features such as Dolby Vision, auto-dimming, punchier JBL acoustics, as well as higher onboard memory and storage, the Nokia TV wins the bout.
Winner: Nokia TV, at least on paper.
