Gadgets 360 reports that the Nokia television boasts a 55-inch 4K screen (16:9) with a 60Hz refresh rate and an Android-based operating system. Its sound quality could be the TV’s biggest draw as it features JBL audio tech and 24-watt speakers.

Other specs include support for Dolby Vision and HDR10, Bluetooth 5.0, three HDMI ports, and two USB ports. You also get 2.25GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage.

“Flipkart’s understanding of the needs and behaviors of Indian consumers, and the power of its reach, will help it make Nokia branded smart TVs accessible and affordable,” said Vipul Mehrotra, Flipkart’s VP of Nokia brand partnerships.

The TV will sell for 41,999 Rupees, which is about $590, through Flipkart beginning tomorrow (December 10). It comes with a bundled stand, wall mount, and Bluetooth remote that supports Google Assistant, all of which make it sound like pretty good value. Sadly, there’s no word on if the TV will launch internationally.

Flipkart added that more Nokia-branded TVs would arrive in the future.

This isn’t the first TV to come from Nokia. During its heyday in the 1990s, the company produced both monitors and televisions.

In its more familiar phone market, we recommended the Nokia 6.2 as one of the best budget phones in our Best of Smartphones feature.

So if I buy a bunch of these and use them to replace or reinforce the walls to my home, that will make my house indestructible yeah?

I could point the screens inwards and have video walls in every room of my house plus I would be protected in the event of nuclear war. Awesome!

My money will go to a company that focuses on picture quality rather than "features" that will go out of date and unsupported. Same thing with a company that does not integrate bullcrap like microphones and cameras. I will pay extra, I don't care. Put the extra money into picture quality. Put the most basic of speakers in it if you need to. I just want a monitor and let the consumer choose what audio they want. My Pioneer 6010 was in the pinnacle of home theater! Too bad it fell over when I moved houses. :(~
