ZTE debuts Intel-based Grand X IN smartphone

The smartphone will start shipping in September in Europe

ZTE has introduced its first smartphone based Intel's Atom processor, the Z2460-powered Grand X IN.

At the Mobile World Congress in February, Intel and ZTE announced that the Chinese phone maker would develop smartphones based on Intel's Atom processor, the first of which would arrive during the second half of 2012. ZTE has made good on that promise as the Grand X IN will start shipping in September in Europe.

The Android 4.0-based smartphone's 4.3-inch screen has a 960-by-540 pixel resolution. That is a step up from the previously announced Orange Santa Clara, which uses the same Intel processor, but has a 4.03-inch screen with a 1024-by-600 pixel resolution. However, Lenovo's K800 has a bigger screen at 4.5 inches.

The hardware specs also include an 8-megapixel camera, NFC, support for HD Voice and an FM radio. Users can access the Internet using HSDPA or Wi-Fi, including the 802.11n standard.

ZTE didn't announce pricing for the Grand X IN.

Intel's list of smartphone partners includes Lava, Orange, Lenovo, ZTE and Motorola Mobility. With Thursday's announcement all of them except for Motorola have announced a product. But Motorola is expected to join the others and debut its first Intel-based smartphone on Sept. 18 at an event in London.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
