NVIDIA has announced that its Tegra 4 mobile processor will pilot the Xiaomi Mi 3.
The flagship phone marks the first partnership between NVIDIA and Xiaomi, one of China's biggest Android handset manufacturers. The 5-inch mobile device will launch on China Mobile in October this year. The Tegra 4 processor offers record levels of performance and battery life with its 72-core NVIDIA GeForce GPU, quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 and fifth battery-saver CPU core, also based on Cortex-A15. The Tegra 4-PLUS-1 CPU architecture offers proven battery life savings by progressively powering on each of its four main CPU cores as they’re needed for increasingly more demanding tasks, and relying on its fifth battery-saver CPU core for less demanding tasks and active standby mode.
On top of a 1080p Full HD display with 441ppi, 2GB RAM, and up to 64GB of storage, the first phone to be powered by Tegra 4 supports video playback with up to 4K resolution. Users will also enjoy best-in-class gaming performance with more realistic graphics, more challenging gameplay, and access to specially optimized games for Tegra.
