Earlier this year, NVIDIA announced a variant of its quad-core Tegra 4 processor that adds support for LTE radios. The Tegra 4i is equipped with four cores that can be clocked to up to 2.3GHz, a fifth processing core for battery conservation and an integrated NVIDIA i500 LTE modem. The chip also includes support for LTE Advance networks and NVIDIAâ€™s Chimera camera technology. AnandTech reports that the Tegra 4i processor will debut in smartphones and tablets in the first quarter of 2014. Furthermore, NVIDIA has also designed a ‘Brand’ smartphone can be sold by wireless carriers. The handset is equipped with a 4.8-inch 720p display, a quad-core Tegra 4i processor, 1GB of RAM, up to 32GB of storage and a 13-megapixel camera. NVIDIA said the Brand smartphone will be priced between $300 to $400 without any subsidies, while other Tegra 4i-based phones could retail for under $200 with no contract.
