ZTE ramps up the Intel love with Atom-wielding Grand X2 IN

ZTE ramps up the Intel love with Atom-wielding Grand X2 INZTE and Intel are big buddies these days, and the latest product of their collaboration is the ZTE Grand X2 IN – an Android smartphone powered by a 2GHz Intel Atom Z2580 processor.

And that's pretty much its most notable feature out of the way, as besides its Intel underpinnings it's very much a middle of the road Jelly Bean handset.

The display is a 4.5in effort with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 – decent enough, in a mid-range sort of way. Similarly, the 1GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage are decidedly mid-stream too.

The camera may be worth lifting an eyebrow for. Aside from its basic 8MP/1080p stills and video resolution it offers an impressive 24fps burst mode plus a host of other premium imaging features.

There's also wireless display sharing and some sort of audio enhancement wizardry on board too, though ZTE isn't sharing the details at this point.

ZTE says the Grand X2 IN will be shipping internationally in Q3, and it'll no doubt come with a seriously aggressive price tag too, what with most people thinking quad-core Snapdragon chips are the only route to decent performance these days.

'Cos that 8-core Exynos is a pathetic waste of space...totally not the fastest SoC on the market or owt ;)

Can someone explain why Android handset has full x86 instruction support capable of running Windows 8, while the rest of the world stuck using Windows RT based on castrated ARM instruction set?

Does anyone agree this is rather ironic?
