“With underlying JBL technology that delivers exceptional dynamics, natural tonal balance, clarity and spatial definition, the PlayUp Portable conveys every sonic nuance of the original recording,” Nokia claimed in a press release.
The speaker comes with a specially designed bass port which acts as a woofer, ensuring incredible low end sound with minimal audible air turbulence. The PlayUp Portable has a maximum output of 89dB, making it suitable for use outdoors or in any modern indoor interior. It also comes with a standard 3.5mm headphone standard audio connector to connect with any mobile phone, computer or MP3 player.

Featuring more than 10 hours of continuous music with a single charge, the PlayUp Portable features a replaceable battery that’s tucked away at its base. Additional accessories include a carrying pouch, a micro USB charger and a 3.5mm audio cable.
The JBL PlayUp speakers will be made available for global customers and is expected to be priced as Nokia’s Play 360 which is available for Rs 9,300.
