LG and Intel teamed up to demo a Moorestown-powered smartphone at CES 2011, way back in January, but the handset never made it to market.
According to ye olde rumour mill, the pair have teamed up once again, and at CES 2012 they’ll show off an LG smartphone with an Intel Medfield chip inside.
Officially, LG and Intel are denying said rumours, but the Korea Times reportedly has it on authority of “high ranking executives” from both companies that it’s all true, man.
Furthermore, according to the top brass, the unnamed smartphone might hit shelves as soon as March 2012.
It won’t be long till we find out one way or t’other, as CES gets underway on January 8. That’s only, like, 8 days away.
