Nvidia Tegra 4 powered ZTE Geek now on sale for $308 in China!

ZTE have stuck by their word and have just launched the Nvidia Tegra 4 powered ZTE Geek on the Chinese market at an incredible $308!

ZTE are targeting Xiaomi’s Mi3 with the Geek, not only on price but on specification too, but in the process they have also shown other Chinese phone makers just exactly what can be achieved at with lower priced hardware.

Gizchina News of the week

At 1888 Yuan ($308) it is slightly cheaper than the 16GB Xiaomi Mi3, yet it has the same 1.8Ghz Tegra 4 chipset, 2GB RAM, 5-inch 1920 x 1080 display and 13 mega-pixel rear camera.

ZTE have also given the Geek Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Glonass, and Android 4.2! It’s not all perfect though! There will only be a 16GB model available, the phone itself isn’t the most attractive in the world, the battery is just 2300mAh and there is currently only support for China Mobiles TD-SCDMA 3G networks!

      The design of the Tegra 4 device is the same as the previously released ZTE Geek with Intel internals. It has likely been used for illustrative purposes. That version of the Geek has been on sale since late July.

      800 by a long shot, both CPU and GPU.

        False,long shot is an exaggeration.

          You’re right. It’s embarrassingly faster for Nvidia to admit.

    As said above, it’s a shame these Tegra 4 devices only work in China. Hopefully they’ll make a WCDMA version as well for us 外国人!

    The size of mah on chinese batteries does not say anything as there is a lot of crap made in china batteries, it vastly depends on quality. A lot of this batteries are a crime on humanity for waste of resources, Bought a 9 cell battery for my laptop and does not last half as long as the old 6 cell one and i bought a few electronics from china, netbooks, tablets, and the batteries are all shit, ALL!
