With the Mobile World Congress just around the corner, what surprises that come out, and stick out is what is exciting me. According to Digitimes and industry sources ZTE and Huawei will be adopting Nvidia and the Tegra 3, plus the Tegra 2 chips as well in future Smartphones and Tablets.
Could we be seeing these Quad-Core and Dual-Core device shown at the MWC for the world to see? The competition against the likes of HTC, Samsung, Motorola and others by these Chinese giants is always welcomed by the Android Community and generally always well supported by the developing world, who I am sure would love to see such devices emerge.
“Facing competition from first-tier players such as Qualcomm, Samsung Electronics, Texas Instruments (TI) as well as Intel and AMD, Nvidia sees China-based players as potential clients for 2012 and has been making visits to these players,” This is what the report states and clearly see Nvidia pushing to get their flailing chips into as many devices as possible on the Android front-line.
We have already seen Huawei’s intention with the Ascend PI S and the Ascend D1 Q now emerging. Will ZTE also make the transition into a more high-end market? Who knows, but ZTE’s intentions still seem a little slow on evidence recently. It’s great news that the Chinese giants of the mobile world are talking at least to get x2 and x4 processor chips into their handsets and tablets, for one it’ll bring much more competition to the big players and the premier bunch of devices that go for higher prices.
