Nvidia Tegra Note 7 LTE coming next quarter with Android KitKat

The Nvidia Tegra Note 7 LTE is arriving next quarter running the latest Android 4.4 KitKat mobile OS.

The existing Tegra Note 7 tablet is getting a 4G LTE update due to the company fitting the 7-inch slate with its Nvidia i500 LTE modem.

From Q2 2014, you’ll be able to purchase the Note 7 with 4G LTE and HSPA plus cellular connectivity, enabling it to be compatible with the major network providers across the world.

To enable this, the Tegra Note 7 is now fitted with the fifth-generation Nvidia i500 LTE modem chipsets, while still maintaining the powerful Nvidia Tegra 4 processor with quad-core Cortex-A15 CPU and 72-core GeForce GPU.

“Our Tegra Note 7 is getting a new family member – one that comes with great connections”, explained Nvidia Product Marketing manager Mithun Chandrasekhar. “We’re adding our i500 LTE modem – and it’s 4G LTE cellular connection – to the world’s fastest 7-inch Android tablet.”

Along with a 4G upgrade, the Tegra Note 7 LTE will ship with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, with the latest Google mobile OS also already available for the other member of the Tegra Note 7 family including the Advent Vega Tegra Note 7.

The Tegra Note 7 features a 7-inch 1280 x 800p HD IPS display and a 5-megapixel rear camera coupled with a front-facing VGA webcam.

Offering 16GB of internal storage as standard, the Tegra Note 7 also comes equipped with microSD card support up to 32GB.

You’ll also get a stylus bundled with the Tegra Note 7 and a micro HDMI connector to allow you to connect the tablet to your TV.

Despite the updates, the Tegra Note 7 will still retail from $299 (£180).
