|An Old ITT-Nokia Television set|
Today comes a very surprising news from India's Flipkart and Finland's Nokia. The two companies have partnered to bring Nokia branded Smart TV's to the fast growing Indian television market.
The TV's haven't been launched yet and this is just an announcement of the partnership between the brands. The announcement also reveals that the Nokia Branded Smart TV's will feature superior audio quality powered by JBL. All other features, specs, design and pricing options will be shared at the time of launch.
Commenting on the partnership, Vipul Mehrotra, Vice President, Nokia Brand Partnerships said, "We are delighted that Flipkart, the leading e-commerce company in the country, will bring the first-ever Nokia branded Smart TVs to India. Today marks the start of an exciting new chapter for the Nokia brand in a new category. And where better to start than in India, where our brand has been trusted for quality, design and reliability. Flipkart’s understanding of the needs and behaviours of Indian consumers, and the power of its reach, will help it make Nokia branded Smart TVs accessible and affordable to many,”
The Smart TV's will be made and sold in India exclusively by Flipkart under the Nokia brand. Do note that this partnership is between Nokia and Flipkart and has nothing to do with HMD Global which makes Nokia branded smartphones.
