NVIDIA unveiled a new family member in the Tegra family tree, the Tegra Note 7 LTE. The device is the same as the Tegra Note tablet they released last year, manufactured by EVGA, but comes with 4G LTE and HSPA+ connectivity. Support for LTE is through AT&T and T-Mobile, as it appears that Verizon or Sprint is not listed as supported bands.
The connected version of the device features the company’s i500 LTE modem and will be available starting in Q2 of this year. It will be released in select markets for a price-tag around $299. The company will offer three different versions of the tablet, one with US-LTE support, other with EU-LTE support and the last with 3G and voice-calling support.
The Tegra Note 7 LTE is powered by a Tegra 4 processor, 2GB of RAM, features a 7? HD IPS LCD display, has a 5MP rear-facing camera, 16GB of onboard storage, a microSD slot for up to 32GB of storage, a Micro HDMI port and a specially-designed stylus for fantastic note taking.
The specifications of the Tegra Note LTE remain same as the Wi-Fi version but it will come pre-loaded with Android 4.4.2, which has also started rolling out the Wi-Fi only versions since February 20. The Tegra Note Wi-Fi versions from various NVIDIA partners across the world will be getting this update over the next-few days.
The only major difference between the Tegra Note LTE and Tegra Note 7 is being the inclusion of its LTE modem. The modem developed by NVIDIA, promises greater performance and efficiency, offering 4x the processing capabilities of the previous generation at 40 percent size.
