ZTE Geek U988S Unveils world’s first Tegra 4 phone
ZTE has shared some product shots on a forum and Sina Weibo a China Mobile version red device Geek U988S but the Intel chip has been replaced by NVIDIA’s upcoming Tegra 4. As teased before, this will likely make the new Geek the world’s first phone to pack this quad-core chip, which will be clocked at 1.8GHz and will have 2GB of RAM, according to the TENAA filing.
Other changes include the 5-inch LCD upgrade from 1,280 x 720 to 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, plus the front-facing camera is now at 2 megapixels instead of just 1. On the other hand, the old 8-megapixel main camera is here to stay. Sadly, this particular device will only work on China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA network, meaning the rest of the world will have to stay tuned for a global version. The date of release is unknown yet.
