Nvidia has shown off its 28nm Cortex A9-based Tegra 4i system-on-chip in a new unbranded smartphone. The demonstration handset, which appears to be similar to the Phoenix reference device shown at CTIA last month, is apparently hinted at being released early next year, alongside other smartphone designs using Tegra 4i.
Nvidia has updated its latest mobile chipset with support for Category 4 LTE connectivity. Tegra 4i, similar to Tegra 4 but includes an integrated Nvidia i500 LTE modem, managed to upgrade from Category 3 and its 100Mbps connection to LTE-Advanced and a possible 150Mps speed, without performing any changes to the hardware.
Nvidia has formally introduced its Project Grey chip, which is officially known as the Tegra 4i. Marketed as a superior alternative to Qualcomm's Snapdragon offerings, which have proved extremely popular in the smartphone market, the new chip brings a much smaller footprint than the current Tegra 4 SoC while adding an integrated LTE modem.
