ZTE will make more Intel-powered smartphones to follow the Grand X IN

The Grand X IN (pictured below) apparently wasn’t a one-off thing for the Chinese company. ZTE has just announced a ‘strategic collaboration’ with Intel on future smartphones. These will sport Intel’s Atom Z2580 processor that was unveiled during Mobile World Congress last week.

This is Intel’s high-end mobile chipset for 2013, which should complement the low-end Z2420 in the chip giant’s portfolio. We’ve already seen the Z2420 in offerings from Xolo in India and Safaricom in Africa.

As for the Z2580 processor that ZTE boasts it will use in future development, one device having it has already been leaked – it’s the Lenovo K900. This is a beast in terms of specs, coming with a Full HD 1080p screen, a 13 MP camera, 2 GB of RAM, and everything else that’s top of the line in this day and age. So we should probably expect ZTE’s next Intel-powered handset to be pretty high-end too.

The Grand X IN has seen some success so far according to its maker. It was one of the best sellers in Austria, of all places, and it’s been available in about a dozen countries in Europe so far.

No actual details about ZTE’s upcoming Intel-powered offerings have been made public just yet, but keep an eye out and we’ll let you know when those get out.
