Nvidia’s Tegra 4 was unveiled at Las Vegas’ CES in January, sporting a quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 CPU, with a 72 core Nvidia GeForce graphics processing unit (GPU).

It also has an optional chipset, in the form of a 4G LTE voice and data Nvidia i500 processor.

This isn’t the first pairing of ZTE and Nvidia, as company’s offering can be found running the Grand X and Grand Era.

ZTE’s newest super phones will show off Tegra 4′s processing power, efficiency and unprecedented capabilities,” said Phil Carmack, Senior Vice President of the Mobile business at NVIDIA.

This is a clear demonstration of ZTE’s ability to quickly develop, and bring to market, market-leading devices running the industry’s latest technologies,” said Mr. He Shiyou, ZTE EVP and Head of the Terminal Division.

Omio has been in touch with ZTE to see if this collaboration will be seen in handsets in the UK, and will update this article when information comes through.
