Nokia also aims at the fashion of Android TV boxes to make your TV smart

We will have a new Android TV box sponsored by Nokia that will be released on European territory during the coming weeks and stands out for being a very complete device with a powerful processor although with a higher price than what we are used to.

The different Android TV boxes allow us to bring the Android ecosystem to our favourite TVs, in a way to make them much smarter with access to the mainstreaming applications of the market at the stroke of remote control.

Now a new report from the German news site anticipates that an Android TV box of the Nokia brand will land before the end of the year on European territory. Named Streaming Box 8000, it will be priced at approximately 100 euros when it is released at the end of the year.

The device will feature an Amlogic S905X3 processor that will run Android TV 10, support dual-band Wi-Fi, support Bluetooth 4.2 and 4K screen resolutions. It has an HDMI connection so that we can plug it into any medium modern TV, but it also incorporates an Ethernet port for a more stable Internet connection, a USB 3.0 Type-A and a USB Type-C port.

As far as the control knob is concerned, it includes quite a few more buttons than we're used to on this type of device, and yet it comes with a full numeric keypad, separate channel and volume controls, a complete set of playback controls, a directional pad along with other navigation controls, colour-coded keys so that we can customize different shortcuts, as well as buttons dedicated to applications such as YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Google Play.

Even if you don't see Disney plus on the controller you don't have to worry, because that app along with so many others will also be pre-installed as standard, and if you can't just go to the Android store to download the ones that are compatible with the device.

It should be noted that the Nokia Streaming Box 8000 is manufactured by Stream view, an Austrian company that has licensed Nokia's name for many of its products such as TVs, set-top boxes or radios.

It looks like a launch only aimed at the European market, so it is likely to be available in Spain in some way or another over the next few weeks.
