We're expecting to hear all about Intel's Medfield processors and the company's plans for smartphone domination this week at Mobile World Congress, and it sounds like a big launch in India could be in the plans. According to a report from BGR, Intel is planning to launch Medfield-based Android smartphones in India and China as early as April. BGR claims that Intel will partner with Indian brand Lava to launch a new smartphone brand that will be run separately from Lava; the phone itself is rumored to include a 1.6GHz dual-core processor with an 8-megapixel camera and and a relatively small display size of 3.5- or 3.7-inches. While we already knew that Lenovo was bringing a Medfield-based phone to China in Q2, this is the first we've heard of an India launch.
