ZTE Geek U988S is the first Tegra 4 phone; device is coming to China Mobile
The first mobile phone powered by the quad-core Tegra 4 has been outed by Chinese manufacturer ZTE. The ZTE Geek U988S, originally expected to feature an Intel processor inside, will instead be powered by the NVIDIA produced chip. The Tegra 4 will be clocked at 1.8GHz and the phone will have 2GB of RAM onboard.

Other changes include an improvement in the screen's resolution from 720 x 1280 to 1080 x 1920, and the sensor on the front-facing snapper will double to 2MP from the original 1MP. Meanwhile the camera on back will remain at 8MP. And while it is great that ZTE has decided to launch the phone with updated specs, this model will only be released in China for China Mobile's proprietary TD-SCDMA network. The carrier is the largest mobile operator in the world.

The original ZTE Geek was introduced on April 10th and was originally supposed to launch in the third quarter. We have no word on whether the revisions will be handled in time to keep that launch date time period.
