Nokia branded Android TV Box certified in India, to be available on Flipkart
Flipkart as a brand licensee of Nokia for televisions in the Indian market, now plans to launch a new Nokia branded Android TV Box in the country. Basically, it will be a set-top box that you will be able to use to turn a non-smart television into a smart TV. This step seems quite natural, since, with its licensing agreement, Flipkart is mostly targeting the Smart TV and related markets in India.
The Android TV Box has now been certified by BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards). The device will come with the model number DVN2KA01 and will be manufactured by Shenzhen SDMC Technology.
A few days ago, Flipkart also posted a teaser video in which it confirmed some of the features of the TV Box like it will come with the support of Android 9.0, Chromecast, Dolby Audio, Gaming Apps, Google Assistant, and Over-the-top (OTT) media services. Though it did not reveal the design or the exact date of launch. Reportedly, it will be launched in this month.
Recently, Flipkart chose to expand its Nokia branded portfolio and launched the all-new Nokia 65 inch UHD 4K LED Smart Android TV, which is slated to go on sale starting August 6.
