NVIDIA has announced a new LTE-enabled variant of their Note 7 tablet. The connected version of the device features the company’s i500 LTE modem and will be available starting in Q2 of this year.
The original Tegra Note 7 launched last November and features an NVIDIA Tegra 4 CPU, 7-inch display, 5MP camera, and 16GB of storage for $199. The device also ships with its own stylus and includes features like palm rejection. The tablet shipped with Jelly Bean but has since received an upgrade to Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
The Tegra Note 7 LTE will feature the same hardware and specs, the only major difference being the inclusion of its LTE modem. That modem, developed by NVIDIA, promises greater performance and efficiency, offering 4x the processing capabilities of the previous generation at 40 percent size.
The launch of the Tegra Note 7 LTE will also see availability expand to several new regions. These include Western Europe, Brazil, and Ukraine. The addition of LTE support doesn’t come cheap, however. When the slate launches look for it to sell for $299, a full hundo over the price of the WiFi version.
