The Nokia Streaming Box 8000 is an example of the new policy of the Finnish company, which has decided license the brand to other technologies, in order to launch products from multiple market segments taking advantage of the company’s brand image. In this case, for this device, the collaboration is carried out with StreamView GmbH, an Austrian company that produces smart televisions, decoders and DAB + radios with a presence in multiple international markets.
Fruit of the collaboration between both companies, the first device to see the light is the Nokia Streaming Box 8000, a set-top box that aims to stand out, due to its performance, over other devices in the same segment. For this purpose, it will have an integrated Amlogic S905X3 formed by four ARM Cortex-A55 cores and ARM Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. Although there is still no information on the amount of RAM it will have or the type of it, it is unthinkable that it is below two gigabytes, and it is hoped that it finally has four gigabytes.
When it comes to wireless connectivity, the Nokia Streaming Box 8000 is known to have Dual band WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2. And if we talk about wired interfaces, it has USB 3.0 type A, USB 3.0 type C, ethernet, HDMI, optical audio, composite video and component video, which allows its connection to multiple types of output devices. At the moment little is known about its benefits, but it has been indicated that will be able to output signal in 4K resolution and that is compatible with HDR10.
The management of the Nokia Streaming Box 8000 will be carried out with Android 10 and the Netflix and Amazon Prime Video apps will be pre-installed. However, of course, it will be possible to install the clients of many other online services, from Disney + to FlixOlé. Also, to expand your possibilities, also includes Google’s voice assistant and a Chromecast receiver, so it will be possible to stream content from compatible devices and applications, which further expands its possibilities.
Although at the moment we are talking about a single device, it makes sense to think that Nokia is considering taking advantage of its good brand image to, in collaborations with companies such as StreamView GmbH, expand your catalog of devices in the most diverse areas. The Nokia Streaming Box 8000 could be Nokia’s first step into the world of televisions and related devices.
The Nokia Streaming Box 8000 It is priced at 100 euros and will be sold in some European countries before Christmas. In the box that will arrive at retail we will find the decoder, a remote control, a power adapter and an HDMI cable.
