Chinese smartphone maker ZTE have announced their Mimosa X which is powered by Nvidia hardware. This is the first Android smartphone to use Nvidia technology for both applications processing and wireless communications since they took over wireless modem maker Icera in June last year.
The attractive smartphone is powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 2 mobile processor, Nvidia GPU and Icera 450 HSPA+ (21 Mbps) modem. It runs on Android 4.0 (known as ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’) and has a 960×540 resolution screen. They have also included a rear facing 5 megapixel camera with one set at the front for video calling. It ships with 4GB of storage and can be expanded to 32GB via the MicroSD slot.
BetaNews add “The ZTE Mimosa X doesn’t yet have an exact launch date or price, but it will debut some time in the second quarter, with pricing targeted at the “mainstream” smartphone consumer. This is a departure from all former Tegra 2 smartphones, which all entered the market at the high end. So not only does this phone usher in the total Nvidia chip solution, it also brings Tegra to the masses.”
Kitguru says: One for the Nvidia fans out there.
