Now, other brands are looking to emulate Xiaomi’s success and the latest one to join the smart TV space is Nokia.

A Times of India report further suggests that the upcoming Nokia TV will be powered by Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box. It will most likely be a stock experience with no bloatware and added customizations. Nokia’s TV is rumored to come backed with an Intelligent Dimming technology for enhanced viewing experiences. It should offer you improved contrast and color accuracy, as per the source.
Now, coming to one of the most important details in this report. Nokia TV is coming to India was announced just days ago, but the report says that it could debut as early as December 2019. Yes, next month, which is great.
