Intel planning to show off more dual-core Android handsets at MWC
Intel has been slowly pushing its way into the smartphone market. It began last September with the Motorola RAZR i, and has been moving quicker since CES this year, unveiling the Lenovo K900, and more recently the Yolo, and the Acer Liquid C1. Now, word has it that Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona will feature even more dual-core Android handsets powered by Intel.
Supposedly, Intel will use MWC to show off Android handsets powered by a new dual core, dual graphics platform, as well as handsets based on the company’s new Intel Atom Z2420 platform targeted at emerging markets. So, this means that the smartphones at MWC will be showing off the low-end Lexington Atom Z2420 processor that we saw at CES, and not the high-end Bay Trail quad-core chip.
Out of the Intel devices that we've already seen, it seems that MWC will be bringing more devices similar to the Yolo, which is based on Intel’s own smartphone reference design for the Z2420, and just launched last week in Kenya.
