ZTE, a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment and network solutions, is set to launch a new Android handset, the ZTE Mimosa X, running the NVIDIA Tegra 2 mobile processor and the NVIDIA Icera 450 HSPA+ modem, at the global telecoms industry event Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The ZTE Mimosa X will run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and have a high quality QHD (960 x 540 pixel) capacitive TFT touchscreen. It will also come equipped with a 5 MP autofocus and flash camera, with a 0.3 MP front facing camera for video-calling.
The Mimosa X will also have a wide range of user-friendly capabilities built in, including GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, an accelerator for screen orientation management and firmware over the air (FOTA) updating, and a proximity sensor.
The ZTE Mimosa X handset, powered by the Tegra 2 processor, will be targeted at smartphone users who take their handset audio and video capabilities seriously. Features of the handset will include advanced audio distribution profile (A2DP), Dolby sound, digital living network alliance (DLNA) compatibility for easy sharing of content, HD video record and play, dual microphones, and built-in gyroscope. It also includes an Icera baseband processor, making it the first phone to incorporate this cutting-edge technology that was acquired last year by NVIDIA.
“The Tegra processor and Icera modem will play an important part in the development of the mobile handset market, and ZTE has worked closely with NVIDIA to develop the Mimosa X smartphone in time for launch at this major global telecoms industry event,” said Mr. He Shiyou, Executive Vice President and Head of the Terminal Division of ZTE. “We expect that the Tegra processor will have a big impact on the mainstream mobile communications world in the coming months and years.”
