Think of Nokia and you probably think of solidly-built smartphones – not TVs. That could all be about to change, though. 

The Finnish smartphone brand has teamed up with Austrian firm Streamview to produce a new range of entry-level 'QLED' TVs ranging from 43- to 70-inch in size. 

According to flatpanelshd, the Nokia-branded sets come with a built-in subwoofer, quad-core processor, three HDMI 2.0 ports, WiFi and Bluetooth, built-in Chromecast and Game mode. You also get 8GB of storage for recording live TV.

Fun fact: although described as 'QLED' the Nokia sets feature a classic LCD – rather than LED – panel. A Quantum Dot film layer is added to achieve higher brightness. Both Samsung and TCL already employ the same LCD-based wizardry.

Smart TV functions are available thanks to the Android TV platform, which typically offers access to over 7,000 apps including the likes of Netflix, Disney+, YouTube and Amazon Prime Video

The new Nokia ph... sorry, TVs, start at €650 (£550 / $750 / AU$1000) for the 43-inch. The 55-inch is €850 (£710 / $960 / AU$1400), and the 58-inch is €900 (£750 / $1050 / AU$1500). The flagship 70-inch model will set you back €1600 (£1400 / $1800 / AU$2600).

The first Nokia-branded QLED TVs went on sale in Europe last year, but Streamview hopes these entry-level options will bring Quantum Dot technology to the masses. Tempted? The range is due on sale at nokia.streamview.com this month.

    This is woeful, surely you must know by now, that all TVs today, other than OLED, have an LCD panel with an LED backlight, whether or not they also have a quantum dot overlay. This article does nothing for What Hi-Fi's credibility.
