$99 ZTE Nexus 5 with Tegra 4 and i500 LTE modem – is it real?
It seems that Google care about your pocket as the Google Nexus 4 is, of course, one of hottest smartphone that deliver high-end specs and Jelly Bean for a very low price tag even Google is looking for something better with a bit more low price tag with the Google Nexus 5 that is expected to be released in May.
New rumor suggesting us that Google can give you a premium mobile experience on a $99 Android phone this holiday season, we don’t have any idea about this plan but Android expert got evidence at the Mobile World Congress 2013. According to expert, you’ll have a better smartphone than Nexus 4 by the end of this year. As for as we can imagine the Nexus 5 with 5-inch 1080p display, 4G LTE modem, quad-core chip and premium camera. The Nexus 5 may lack many pre-installed apps that you can find under other Android devices but it may aims to offer very fast performance including download speeds, better pictures, and graphics for games.
Of course the smartphone we’re talking about does not exist until now but NVIDIA and ZTE are pushing the limits of what’s currently possible. They have announced that ZTE will feature first Tegra 4-powerd smartphone even with i500 LTE modem.
ZTE is well-known Android manufacture for chip smartphones, a ZTE smartphone with Tegra 4i can cost just $100 to $300 USD, as Matt Wuebbling, Director of Tegra Product Marketing at NVIDIA said that “We’re looking at unsubsidized smartphones based on Tegra 4i to cost between $100 to $300 USD, dependent on markets and OEMs”.
The Google Nexus 4 cost just $299 to $349 and it seems that the demand has created a storm in the market but if Nexus 5 cost just $100, how many people will buy? Of course a lot. Google is expected to continue the sale of unlocked Nexus smartphones. A 4G LTE smartphone for just $100 is very attractive offer, Phil Carmack, Sr. VP of Mobile at NVIDIA, recently said, “Tegra 4i will bring super phone capabilities to the mainstream smartphone market, and there will be nothing on the market like it.”
We’re very excited to see that kind of smartphone in real, are you? Do let us know your thoughts in the below comment section.
