It used to be South Korean manufacturer LG grabbing all the world’s firsts in the smartphone world, but it’s missed a trick here.
We’re getting an official swatch at the world’s first Tegra 4-powered smartphone, courtesy of Chinese manufacturer ZTE.
We’re calling the phone the ZTE Geek, though – confusingly – it sounds significantly different from the ZTE Geek Martin reported on around three months ago.
Martin’s Geek had a 5in 720p display and Intel's then-new Z2580 Clover Trail+ Atom chip.
Here, ZTE Geek specs seemingly include a 5in 1080p display, quad-core Tegra 4 processor clocked at 1.8GHz, 2GB of RAM, an 8MP/2MP rear/front camera combo, and Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.1).
The ZTE Geek will be exclusive to China Mobile, and also boasts a microSD slot, and, er, a battery. That is to say, we’re not entirely sure what size of battery the ZTE Geek has.
The Tegra 4 was unveiled way back in January as the “world’s fastest mobile processor”, and while it’s been linked to several tablets, the ZTE Geek marks its first appearance in a smartphone.
While the Tegra 4 will focus on high-end smartphones and tablets, expect to see lots of “mainstream” devices with the LTE-compatible Tegra 4i later in the year.
