Earlier this year during CES 2013, NVIDIA took to the stage to announce their next-gen SoC, the Tegra 4. A couple of manufacturers have since announced their plans to ship Tegra 4 devices, with ZTE being one of them. Thanks to the folks at GSM Insider, they have managed to get their hands on a photo of what is allegedly the ZTE N988, possibly the world’s first smartphone to feature NVIDIA’s Tegra 4 chipset. According to the leaked specifications, the ZET N988 is an Android smartphone with a whopping 5.7” display, although it seems to be lacking in the resolution department as it only packs 1280×720, making this a HD display rather than Full HD which seems to be the trend these days.
Other specifications include 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera and presumably at the very least Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on board. Apart from that not much else is known about this handset, such as when it will launch, and if ZTE plans for it to launch in the Chinese market first before moving on to the rest of the world. Either way take this with a grain of salt for now, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info.
