ZTE Geek gets Tegra 4 makeover

Written by Peter Scott

So much for Intel

ZTE has introduced a new version of the ZTE Geek, its flagship phone. The design hasn’t changed much redesigned or anything and the changes are under the bonnet.

The Geek launched in April, with an Intel Z2580 processor clocked at 2GHz running the show. Now though, ZTE relaunched it with a Tegra 4 SoC. The screen was also bumped from a 720p to a 1080p unit, and the phone now packs 2GB of memory instead of 1GB.

The company says the phone will retail for about $308 in China, which is slightly less than the Xiaomi Mi3, which also packs a Tegra 4.

Although these aren’t the huge design wins Nvidia was hoping for, the Mii 2 and the original Geek sold rather well in China. Xiaomi recently announced that it sold a total of 10 million Mii 2 phones, but there’s no figures for the Intel-powered Geek.

The two low-profile design wins could in fact be the biggest coup Nvidia managed to pull off with the delayed chip. Nvidia forecasts total Tegra revenue of about $500 million this year and a sizable chunk of it is likely to come from the Xiaomi and ZTE deals.
