NVIDIA LTE Modem Makes Landfall in Europe, with Launch of Wiko Tegra 4i LTE Smartphone

by Mike Han

Wiko Mobile, France’s fastest growing local phonemaker, has just launched Europe’s first Tegra 4i smartphone.

Tegra 4i – our first integrated LTE mobile processor – combines a 60-core GPU and our own LTE modem to bring up to 2X higher performance than competing phone chips.

Launched at Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona, the Wiko WAX phone features a 4.7-inch 720p display, 8MP rear camera and LTE / HSPA+ support.

The phone will be available throughout Europe – including France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Italy, UK and Belgium – starting in April.

Within two short years, Wiko has become a major player by providing unlocked phones with sophisticated design, outstanding performance and the newest technologies. It has more than two million users in France and is expanding overseas fast.

Wiko WAX comes pre-installed with TegraZone – NVIDIA’s free app that showcases the best games optimized for the Tegra processor.

As a refresher, Tegra 4i includes a quad-core CPU and fifth battery saver core, and a version of the NVIDIA i500 LTE modem optimized for integration.

The result is an extremely power efficient, compact, high-performance mobile processor that unleashes performance and capability usually only available in costly super phones.

    I’m thrilled to see more Tegra chips here in France. As an ARM engineer, I really love to see some of the solutions people have come up with, and I really love your mix of ARM techology and NVIDIA GPUs. Slap on a modem, and it looks like a very serious contender. Need to get my hands on one of these and see for myself.

    The hardware looks good but I’m a little wary of the software:
    No word on which Android version this will have and no idea what the upgrade schedule will be…
    I wish one or more of these phone makers would strike a deal with Google to have Google controlled updates Nexus style, then I would really consider buying their phones…
