ZTE U988S leaked, world’s first Tegra 4 smartphone?

Earlier this year, NVIDIA officially announced the Tegra 4 processor, which will boost 72 GPUs; making it the strongest Tegra chip to date. In February, Nvidia and ZTE announced that the Chinese handset maker will be the first one to officially launch the first ever Tegra 4 smartphone in the market. However, they didn’t tell us about when they will release it or how the phone will look, but it seems the image below is probably the world’s first Tegra 4 smartphone, as reported by PhoneArena.

In the image above, it looks like a thick phone, but it is actually quite thin at just 9mm. It is said that it will run Android 4.2.1 right out of the box.

China Mobile logo is visible on the back cover of the smartphone, so hopefully it will land there first and then somewhere else. Will it be available in US or UK market? We have no information on that but we will hear about it sooner or later. As 4G/LTE connectivity in smartphones is becoming really common in US and other countries, we might see smartphones with Nvidia Tegra 4i in the States  as that chip comes with integrated LTE modem. Tegra 4i smartphones are said to debut in Q1 2014.
