ZTE Mimosa X now official, dual-core goes mainstream
Dual-core processors are not only a trait for smartphone heavyweights anymore, and here comes another smartphone that solidifies that statement. Enter the ZTE Mimosa X – powered by a dual-core Tegra 2 chip by NVIDIA, it is an Android mid-range device tailored for the mainstream market.

What is interesting about the ZTE Mimosa X is that it uses an NVIDIA Icera 450 baseband modem, which resides alongside a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip. This is actually the first time we see Icera hardware in a smartphone since the company was acquired by NVIDIA back in mid-2011. The Icera 450 is capable of reaching 21Mbps peak download speeds and features IceClear interference cancellation technology that promises more reliable data transmission.

Going further down its specs sheet, the ZTE Mimosa X packs a 4.3-inch display with qHD resolution. There is a 5-megapixel main camera on its back, a front-facing shooter for video chats, and the 4 gigabytes of on-board storage can be expanded with a microSD card of up to 32GB. We also see support for Dolby sound, DLNA, dual microphones, and a built-in gyroscope. In terms of software, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich comes out of the box.

The ZTE Mimosa X is scheduled for launch during the second quarter of 2012, and even though its price remains unknown, we have a feeling that it is going to offer lots of value for its money. We expect seeing the handset at MWC 2012, along with the recently announced duo of ZTE Android smartphones.

I hope it sells under ZTE and not under any carrier name.

wow, this looks nice! hopefully it is priced to compete as well.. looks like there's only one manufacturer that needs to catch up with the current tech now.. hopefully this manufacturer has not shifted its business to full time lawyer firm yet..
