A few months ago ZTE introduced a smartphone called the Geek, sporting a 5 inch screen and an Intel Atom Clover Trail+ processor. But it looks like some folks will have a chance to pick up a ZTE Geek with an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor and a higher-resolution display.
Engadget reports that the ZTE Geek U988S is headed to China soon.
The new model has a 5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, which is a step up from the 1280 x 720 pixel display on the Intel-powered model.
Under the hood, the new model is also powered by NVIDIA’s quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 processor, making it one of the first smartphones to use the chip. Up until now most of the Tegra 4 devices I’ve seen have been tablets or portable gaming devices.
Other specs for the new ZTE Geek include Android 4.2 software, 2GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, and support for China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA network. In other words, this phone won’t be much use outside of China.
