The Geek smartphone

ZTE have announced the ZTE Geek, which is the world’s first NVIDIA Tegra 4-powered smartphone.

The Intel chip has been replaced by NVIDIA’s upcoming Tegra 4. This will likely make the new Geek the world’s first phone to pack this quad-core chip, which will be clocked at 1.8GHz and will have 2GB of RAM, according to the TENAA filing.

Other changes include a 5-inch LCD upgrade from 1,280 x 720 to 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, plus the front-facing camera is now at two megapixels instead of just one. On the other hand, the old 8-megapixel main camera is here to stay.

Sadly, this particular device will only work on China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA network, meaning the rest of the world will have to stay tuned for a global version. Let’s hope it doesn’t take too long.
