NVIDIA, along with Wiko Mobile have unveiled the latest Tegra 4i powered smartphone here at Mobile World Congress. The handset is the Wiko WAX and will be available for those in Europe. The key here, the Tegra 4i processor. This setup includes 60 GPU cores and a quad-core CPU with a fifth battery saver core.
Further details on the processor setup for the WAX show it being paired with the NVIDIA i500 LTE modem. This is the same modem setup found in the recently announced Tegra Note 7 (with LTE) tablet. As for the Tegra goodies included in the WAX, NVIDIA is touting how this means the handset will be able to “deliver fast web browsing, best-in-class gaming performance, smooth video playback and great battery life.”
Along with the LTE coverage, the WAX will also have HSPA+ support. Additional specs for the WAX include a 4.7-inch 720p display and an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera. Those making a purchase will also find the TegraZone pre-loaded. And for those not familiar, that should mean quick and easy access to some Tegra optimized games.
To expand on the European availability, NVIDIA has said that will include France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Italy, Belgium, and the UK. The Wiko WAX will arrive in April, but so far, there hasn’t been any mention of pricing. We also haven’t seen anything in terms of availability outside of Europe, but we are looking to spend some hands-on time with the WAX here at Mobile World Congress.
