We’ve known about the ZTE Geek in the past, but very few details were known at that point, other than that it was running Intel’s Atom Z2580 SoC. However, today we’re being treated with what appears to be an unveiling of the ZTE Geek, running an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, making it the world’s first Tegra 4-equipped smartphone.
This ZTE Geek is the same one as the Intel Atom-powered version, but the Tegra 4 model will be available on China Mobile. The company shared some product shots on a Chinese forum ahead of the official announcement of the device. Details and specs of the new device still are not yet known officially, but leaks indicate the phone will pack quite a punch.
The Tegra 4 quad-core chip is said to be clocked at 1.8GHz and will have 2GB of RAM. Covering up the internals will be a 5-inch 1080p display with Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean running the show on the software end. There’s also an 8-megapixel camera with an LED flash and a 2MP shooter on the front for those inevitable selfies.
This is the first smartphone to carry the Tegra 4, and it’ll only be available on China Mobile for now, so a North American release may never happen, or we could see an international version pop up at some point, but specs could change if that happens. It probably won’t be long anyway until a Tegra 4-equipped smartphone lands in the US, as well as other parts of the world. It’ll only be a matter of time.
