Nvidia and ZTE have unveiled the first smartphone to be powered by the Nvidia Tegra application processor and feature the Icera modem, called the ZTE Mimosa X.

"The ZTE Mimosa X is exciting for a few reasons," said Michael Rayfield, general manager of the Mobile business at Nvidia. "The Mimosa X marks the first time Nvidia technology powers all the major processors in a single smartphone, and also the first time a premium mobile computing experience is coming to the mainstream smartphone market."

The Mimosa X, powered by the Nvidia Tegra 2 mobile processor, features a dual-core CPU and GeForce GPU, and the Nvidia Icera 450 HSPA+ modem has baseband and RF processors, designed to feature excellent throughput and low power.

The phone will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and have a 4.3-inch qHD (960 x 540) screen, 5 MP front and rear cameras, and 4 GB of storage expandable to 32 GB.

The ZTE Mimosa X is designed to be able to deliver super multimedia capabilities, including advanced audio distribution profile (A2DP), Dolby sound, digital living network alliance (DLNA) compatibility for easy sharing of content, HD video record and play, dual microphones, and built-in gyroscope. The Mimosa X will be launched globally in Q2 2012 and is positioned for the mainstream market.

The phone is designed to have speedy web browsing, smooth multitasking, and HD video, as well as console-quality gaming with TegraZone. TegraZone is Nvidia's free Android Market app that showcases the best games optimised for the Tegra processor.

The Nvidia Icera 450 supports up to 21Mbps category 14 HSPA+ with fast downloads in fading channels, IceClear interference cancellation technology for fast throughput at the cell edge and advanced Release 7 features for an ultra-low latency network response.
