The 28nm Cortex-A9 chip popped up in a new handset that was spotted by Anandtech. The device is currently being shopped around from an unnamed ODM, and the device’s “Brand” marking up top will likely later be replaced with either an operator’s or OEM’s brand.
The device will offer a 4.8-inch 720p display, 13 MP rear-facing camera, and LTE/HSPA + connectivity that will be capable of covering multiple regions, though those potential regions remained unspecified. The device is expected to come to market sometime in the first quarter of 2014 with 8, 16, or 32 GB models and will cost between $300 and $400 with a contract.
Nvidia has also noted that additional Tegra 4i handsets are currently being developed, with prices starting as a low as $200 without a contract.
