ZTE First to Announce Super Phones Powered by Tegra 4

ZTE has announced its partnership with NVIDIA to deliver the first super phones powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 4 mobile processor, which was first announced at the CES 2013 earlier this year.

The NVIDIA Tegra 4 will empower ZTE devices to provide ultra-fast web browsing, improved app load times, and more realistic gaming experiences - all without compromising on battery life - made possible by the processor's 72 custom NVIDIA GeForce core and quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 CPU. In addition, Tegra 4 enables worldwide 4G LTE voice and data support through an optional chipset, the NVIDIA i500 processor.

ZTE and NVIDIA are also collaborating on a new LTE super phone utilzing the i500 LTE chipset for blazing-fast networking. These new devices build on ZTE and NVIDIA's success with previous smartphones including the Grand X, the first smartphone powered by both the Tegra processor and NVIDIA’s Icera modem; the Grand Era super phone with Tegra 3; and the U950, the first premium quad-core smartphone with Tegra 3 priced below US$160.

The Tegra 4 super phones are expected to launch in China in the first half of 2013.
