Xiaomi Launches World’s First Tegra 4 Smartphone

Xiaomi Launches World’s First Tegra 4 Smartphone.

It is good to see NVidia finally breaking into the smartphone market with this win at China’s Xiaomi. There are several variants of Xiaomi’s Mi3 phone, Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 800 is used in China Unicom and China Telecom phones and the Tegra 4 model will support China Mobile.

Xiaomi opted for Tegra 4 rather than Tegra 4i which suggests that Xiaomi is going for high performance with its 3rd generation smartphone. Another reason is that Xiaomi decided against the Tegra 4i as it chose a different modem solution for its Mi3 smartphone.

Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun,  provided strong endorsements for NVidia’s Tegra 4. This is certainly good news for NVidia.

The Mi3 is not only a high end phone sporting dual band wifi, NFC, 16 GB or 32 GB of storage, it is also only 8.1mm thick and costs only US$330 for the 16 GB model. It is only available in China and online only.

I look forward to further performance comparisons between the Snapdragon and Tegra versions of Mi3.
