NVIDIA officially pulled back the curtains on its new Tegra 4 SoC at CES 2013 in January. Since then, we’ve seen many new smartphones unveiling at different times, but none of them were running NVIDIA’s new Tegra 4 chip. Seems like, Chinese phone manufacturer, ZTE, is looking forward to be the first one using Tegra 4 chips in its upcoming smartphones. Last Wednesday, ZTE announced that it is pairing up with NVIDIA to bring a line of “super phones” powered by quad-core Tegra 4.
The upcoming Tegra 4 chip equipped smartphones will feature 72 custom GeForce cores for graphics processing, a quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 CPU. That’s not all. The smartphones will support 4G LTE voice and data, where available, when paired with the firm’s NVIDIA i500 processor. Besides, these upcoming Tegra 4 chip equipped smartphones will deliver improved app load times, realistic gaming experiences, great battery life and many more. Apart from the above specs, ZTE hasn’t revealed anything about the upcoming Tegra 4 chip equipped smartphones.
ZTE executive vice president and head of the terminal division Mr. He Shiyou said, “We’re proud to continue our pioneering partnership with NVIDIA and are looking forward to offering more Tegra-powered devices, which are defining a new generation of phones offering premium mobile computing experiences. Our Tegra 4 smartphones will provide full HD entertainment and multimedia experiences that consumers will love.”
ZTE will release the Tegra 4 chip equipped smartphones in China in the middle of this year. We have no idea about the name of the phones or their prices.
