Intel guts, Android 4.0 brains: ZTE's Grand X IN launches next month in a new class of smartphones

30

Last month marked the launch of the ZTE Grand X, a decent midrange handset that runs an almost completely stock version of Android 4.0. Now the company has finally revealed the Intel-powered device that it promised to deliver by the end of the year: the ZTE Grand X IN.

Aside from the Intel Atom Z2460 processor, the Grand X IN is, for all intents and purposes, another midrange smartphone. The device has a 4.3-inch qHD (960 x 540) display, 1GB of RAM, HSPA+ connectivity, and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with a VGA camera on the front. Android 4.0 is included, but unlike the Grand X, appears to be skinned. Regardless, this is the first time that Intel's Medfield platform will be used alongside Ice Cream Sandwich on a retail smartphone, so it will be interesting to see how it performs when paired with one of ZTE's devices. Pricing and carrier information for the Grand X IN have not been announced, although the phone will be available in Europe starting next month.
