One of the first smartphone manufacturers that experimented with the Medfield platform from Intel, the China-based phone maker ZTE has announced a new mobile phone, dubbed ZTE Grand X2 In that is using Android on an x86 architecture, bringing impressive technical specifications.
Compared to the first ZTE Grand X In model, which is already available for purchase on the market, the new smartphone announced by the Chinese company is based on the Intel Clover Trail+ hardware platform. Compared to the already “old” models based on Intel Medfield, the Atom Z2580 solution fitted inside the ZTE Grand X2 In is providing a dual-core process that replaces the single-core unit, borrowing the HyperThreading virtualization and raising the clock speed to 2 GHz, while the graphics processing unit is a lot more powerful, a PowerVR SGX 544 MP2 unit clocked at 533 MHz.
ZTE Grand X2 In features a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The ZTE Grand X2 In technical specifications list also include 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal flash storage that can be expanded using microSD cards of up to 64 GB, a camera mounted on the back with an 8 megapixel sensor that boasts hardware optical stabilization and burst shot mode with 24 frames per second. The front facing camera is a 1 megapixel unit, while the battery has a capacity of 2,000 mAh.
The new smartphone that was announced by ZTE will run Android Jelly Bean as it leaves the factory gates and it will be available on the European market starting the third quarter of the year. The ZTE Grand X2 In price was not unveiled.
It is nice to see that Intel is getting a lot of attention on the smartphones and tablets market, and probably the US-based company will become a major force in the business, along with Qualcomm, Nvidia, and Samsung.
