Continuing the push of its mobile business, chipmaker NVIDIA has this week announced that the influence of its technology is spreading beyond the mere inclusion of core processing platforms such as the Tegra.

More pointedly, the forthcoming Mimosa X smartphone from ZTE is not only powered by the popular dual-core Tegra 2 chipset, it also comes complete with the NVIDIA Icera 450 HSPA+ modem. 

“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,” outlined Michael Rayfield, general manager of Mobile Business at NVIDIA.

Other contributing elements stuffed into the Mimosa X include, version 4.0 of Google Android (a.k.a. Ice Cream Sandwich), a 4.3-inch qHD capacitive touchscreen (960x540), front and rear cameras, 4GBs of internal storage (expandable to 32GBs via microSD), and NVIDIA’s TegraZone gaming app store.

There’s no word yet on when the Mimosa X will be released, or how much it will cost, but current whispers suggest a retail launch before the close of 2012’s second quarter.
