Orange announces Intel-based Santa Clara Android phone, HTC One X, HTC One S, and white Sony Xperia U

Orange has announced that it would offer no less than four new Android handsets in the near future.

First of all, we’ve got the Orange Santa Clara, which will be one of the world’s first Intel-based smartphones (using a 1.6GHz Atom Z2460 processor). The Santa Clara was previously seen as Orange London, and its final name should be different – since Santa Clara is just a codename according to Orange.

Presented as a “high-performance smartphone”, the Santa Clara measures 123mm x 63 x 9.99mm, weighs 117 grams, and features: a 4 inch WVGA display, HSPA+, 8MP camera “that can take 10 pictures in under a second”, and 16GB of internal memory. Various Orange services (like Orange TV, Orange Wednesdays, Your Orange, Orange Gestures Dailymotion and Deezer) will be pre-loaded on the handset.

The Santa Clara (pictured below) will be first available in the UK and France, running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. An update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will be rolled-out soon after launch.

Intel stuff aside, Orange will release the newly-announced HTC One X and HTC One S in the second quarter of the year. Moreover, at about the same time the operator will also launch an exclusive white version of the Sony Xperia U. More details about their availability and prices will be unveiled sometime later.
