Orange’s Intel-powered Santa Clara Android phone launching soon

Officially announced back in February, and first showcased at MWC 2012 in Barcelona, the Orange Santa Clara is getting closer to being released. Orange will host an event on May 31 (this Thursday), where it’s going to show off the handset, and let the press “experience” it “before its official UK launch.”

The Santa Clara is already featured on Orange UK’s website, but there’s no mention on exactly when it will become available (it will have a different name when it happens anyway).

The Santa Clara isn’t exactly a high-end device, but that’s why Orange will be able to sell it for a rather low (yet unknown) price. It features a 4 inch WVGA display, HSPA+, 8MP rear camera, 16GB of internal memory, and a 1.6GHz single-core processor (Intel Atom Z2460, of course). At the moment, the handset runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but we hope it will get Android 4.0 ICS at some point.
