NVIDIA announced the Tegra 4i mobile processor today which is essentially a variation of the original Tegra 4 announced in January, but it’s half the sizeand has an integrated NVIDIA i500 4G LTE modem, which was previewed back at CES 2013. The chip has four cores, plus a fifth-battery saving core, which can run at a clock speed of up to 2.3 GHz and is based off of the ARM Cortex-A9 architecture, rather than the A15, helping NVIDIA to achieve the smaller chip size.
NVIDIA has also announced a developer phone which they’re calling the Phoenix. It houses NVIDIA’s latest mobile technologies including the new Tegra 4i chipset. The dev phone has a 5-inch 1080p display and a 13-megapixel camera. The Phoenix will be a blueprint for Tegra 4i smartphones, allowing for manufacturers to get devices with the new chip to market faster.
