Nokia’s first attempt at smart TVs focuses on quality audio

No, this one’s not 3310-grade bulletproof

Xiaomi pulled off the first one, which was then followed by OnePlus and then Motorola. It’s clear that Chinese smart TVs want to get into your living room, but from what we have tested, audio is not on their list of priorities. So Nokia did not play air hockey on their newest TV to show how durable it is; instead their focus is on audio to crack the already overcrowded budget TV market in India. Priced competitively at ₹41,999, the new Nokia 55CAUHDN gets you a 55in display that lets you enjoy 4K movies and HDR content. It also runs Android TV 9 and gets you built-in Chromecast support. But the focus here is audio and Nokia claims to tick several things off your list of TV accessories with this. That’s because Nokia’s smart TV comes with ‘Sound by JBL’. There’s a 24 Watt built-in speakers setup with DTS TruSurround and Dolby Audio, so you won’t need a sound bar to keep the neighbours awake while watching your next flick.
