As CES (News - Alert) 2014 kicks off today in Las Vegas, ZTE Corp. and Analogix Semiconductor, Inc. are set to showcase the industry’s first 4K capable smartphone under ZTE’s (News - Alert) premium Nubia brand. The Nubia 4K smartphone displays absolute clarity with stunning footage in Ultra High-definition.
Equipped with in-built SlimPort interface solution from Analogix Semiconductor, it allows you to display theater-quality movies, sports, presentations and other content on external displays with up to 4K resolution.
The Nubia smartphone is built on ZTE’s NeoLink technology, the industry’s first truly end-to-end commercial mobile solution, with SlimPort as underlying technology. The product can be seen at both ZTE’s booth #31431 in South Hall 3 and the SlimPort booth #36912 in South Hall 4 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Andre Bouwer, vice president of marketing for Analogix, said in a statement, “We’re proud to be part of this groundbreaking development. Our new Ultra-HD SlimPort interface technology allows Nubia users to do even more with their phones, which we expect to increasingly begin to replace high-quality video players and game consoles.”
Analogix’s ANX781X family of SlimPort Ultra-HD solutions allow mobile devices to connect to a wide variety of projectors, TVs and monitors, including those with VGA and HDMI interfaces, using SlimPort cables and adaptors.
Analogix Semiconductor is the leading supplier of DisplayPort-compliant semiconductors and IP products used in notebooks, tablets and other mobile devices.
Ni Fei, General Manager of ZTE’s Nubia brand said, “Today’s mobile consumers are managing more and more content through their smartphones, and they expect to be able to share that content with projectors, monitors and TVs. Thanks to their built-in 4K capabilities, our new Nubia handsets will allow them, for the first time, to use their smartphones to view movies and other content in the latest high-definition format.”
