Recently, Nokia has been licensing its brands to many companies. The latest company to sign such an agreement with the company is StreamView GmbH. This Austrian company has now become the official licensee of the Nokia brand, selling smart TVs, set-top boxes, and DAB + radios in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The company’s first product is a set-top box called the Nokia Streaming Box 8000 set-top box. The SEI Robotics manufactured it. The box will go on sale before Christmas.
The specifications of the Nokia Streaming Box 8000 are higher than other similar devices on the market. It uses a quad-core Amlogic S905X3 chipset, with 4 ARM Cortex-A55 cores and ARM Mali-G31 MP2 GPU. Unfortunately, the size of RAM is currently unknown, but we expect it to be less than 2GB.
This set-top box supports dual-band WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 4.2, as well as multiple interfaces such as USB 3.0 Type-A, USB Type-C. Not only that, but it also supports Ethernet, HDMI, optical audio, AV, and DC power input.
This set-top box also supports 4K streaming, but the specifications do not mention Dolby Vision/Atmos support. However, we expect the box to support HDR10 at least because the device’s chipset supports this feature.

Other popular streaming media applications, such as Disney+, can be installed from the Google Play Store. In addition, the set-top box has a built-in Chromecast and Google Assistant remote control.
The price of Nokia Streaming Box 8000 is $110. It will be in stock in some European countries before Christmas. The retail box will include a set-top box, a remote control, a power adapter, and an HDMI cable.
