In life, there are no second chances to make a first impression. The same goes for snapping photos at just the precise moment. Capturing that perfect picture is a once in a lifetime shot and it shouldn’t be ruined by a blurry lens or color distortion. Nvidia’s new Tegra 4 will be an upgrade over other camera phones. The Tegra 4 processor will be much faster, which will improve Web browsing, as well as game playing.
"Because our phone is now our most important camera, the ability to capture that magical moment comes and goes," Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said at CES. "In life, you only get one shot.”
The Tegra 4 photo processor “one-shot HDR” will be up to 10 times faster than what the latest iPhone is using. HDR cameras will generally take two separate pictures, a dark image and a light image, in a slow sequence. The best aspects of the two separate images are then combined into one, giving you the finished product.
"We go bam! bam! We take two simultaneous shots, and then all processors are deployed," Huang said.

The Tegra 4 will also feature better video quality capturing. Its “computational photography” will be able to apply HDR to live video. Other features will include better motion capturing for moving objects and the ability to add effects like strobe lights.
The new Tegra 4 will have a faster process time and snaps two of the same image almost simultaneously then combines them just as fast, producing a much clearer image. What’s the secret to Nvidia’s faster processor? Simple, double up on the amount of processors your competitors are using.
According to Nvidia, the new Tegra 4 will run five ARM Cortex-A15 processors. No other competitor on the market is running four processors, which will give the Tegra 4 a distinct advantage.
The Tegra 4 will first appear in Nvidia’s handheld gaming device, Project Shield, sometime in the summer, with no formal date as to its integration into its phones.
