Earlier this month, Nokia announced that the company indeed is working on a brand new smart television in collaboration with Flipkart. Since then, Nokia Smart TV has been making numerous rounds on the internet revealing bits of information each time. We now have the confirmed launch date of the product. It seems like the company is launching the television on December 5 in India. The confirmed launch date falls in line with our previous report indicating an early December launch.
As part of this collaboration, Flipkart will be taking care of the manufacturing, distribution, and sales of the upcoming smart televisions. Nokia Smart TV is going to be a part of the “Make in India” program. It is worth noting that this is Flipkart’s second major collaboration with the first one being with Motorola for smart televisions also. As of now, Nokia, as well as Flipkart, has not officially revealed any key information on the television. As you might have guessed, the product is going to be the Flipkart exclusive.
This year we have seen a growing trend of smartphone manufacturers venturing into the smart TV space. Nokia’s upcoming television will face immense competition from the likes of Motorola, Xiaomi, Vu and many more. It seems like the e-commerce platform will target the Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities in India.
