Lately, Nokia has been licensing its branding to various firms. The latest company to sign such a deal with the Finnish company is StreamView GmbH. This Austrian company has now become the official Nokia brand licensee to sell smart TVs, set-top boxes, and DAB+ radios in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The first product from this company is called Nokia Streaming Box 8000 manufactured by SEI Robotics. It will be available for purchase before Christmas.
The new Nokia Streaming Box 8000 has more specs than any other regular streaming devices available in the market. It is powered by quad-core Amlogic S905X3 chipset with 4 x ARM Cortex-A55 cores and ARM Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. Unfortunately, the amount of RAM is not known at the moment but we expect it to be no less than 2GB.
The streaming device features dual-band WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 4.2 along with a wide variety of ports like USB 3.0 Type-A, USB Type-C, Ethernet, HDMI, optical audio, AV, and DC power-in.
The set-top box supports 4K streaming but the specs donât say anything about Dolby Vision/Atmos. However, it should support at least HDR10 since the chipset underneath the device is more than capable of.
Further, the new Nokia-branded streaming device runs Android TV 10 operating system and will ship with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video pre-installed. Whereas, other popular streaming apps like Disney+ can be installed from the Google Play Store.
Last but not least, the set-top comes with Chromecast Built-in and a Google Assistant remote control with a plethora of keys like a traditional television remote.
The Nokia Streaming Box 8000 is priced at â¬100 and will go on sale before Christmas in select European countries. The retail package will include the set-top box, a remote control, a power adapter, and an HDMI cable.
