Formerly rumoured as the Tegra Tab, the Note is designed to embody the Nvidia brand. The 7-inch tablet packs a Tegra 4 chip with a 72-core GeForce GPU and quad-core Cortex-A15 CPU with a fifth battery-saver core. The display has a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and supports Nvidia’s DirectStylus technology that features finer point and broader stroke control.

It also comes equipped with the company’s PureAudio technology that offers rich and deep audio through the device’s front-facing stereo speakers with a bass reflex port.

In terms of imaging, the Tegra Note uses a 5MP rear camera and a front VGA webcam. The main camera is equipped with the Chimera computational photography architecture that delivers a number of new features including always-on HDR photos and videos, HDR panoramic and persistent tap-to-track capabilities. Nvidia has also added SmugMug’s Camera Awesome app that delivers exclusive Tegra 4 features such as tap-to-track and 100 fps video with slow-motion playback.

There’s 16GB of on-board storage, which can be expandable via a microSD card slot. According to Nvidia, the Tegra Note’s battery can last up to 10 hours even with HD video playback.

The Nvidia Tegra Note will run on the latest version of Android and will receive OTA software updates directly from Nvidia. There’s no word yet on when the tablet will be commercially available but the company announced that it will go for around AU$215 once it reaches the retail stores worldwide.
