Motorola XT890, rumored to pack 2GHz Intel processor, breaks bread with the FCC
While there is no word in the FCC documentation concerning LTE, there is some talk about the device running dual-band Wi-Fi. Also missing is any indication about NFC support on the phone. While nothing has been said or even hinted at, there is some reason to believe that this device will be the Intel powered Motorola model to be introduced September 18th in London. Why? Well, all of the promotional material for the event focuses on Motorola taking you to 'The Edge'. And what new Motorola model has an edge-to-edge screen? You got it.
The Motorola XT890 also ran through the GLBenchmark site where we were able to find out about the resolution of the display and the 2GHz CPU. Looks like Motorola has something soon for power users outside of the states.
GL Benchmark displays the 2GHz processor for the XT890 (L) and the recently launched Motorola DROID RAZR M

Why will a phone with such a high-speed processor feature a low res-screen. Something's not right.

I imagine that both companies are trying to keep risks and costs low at first as Intel enters (fairly) uncharted territory and they work out the kinks in the system. With introducing an entirely new, and by the looks of it, very unique processor, there is a lot on the back end to get done. My guess is taking it easy until they are more confident with the hardware/software combo, first impressions with a phone that lags big time will be no good.

Well, this is interesting considering the previous Intel devices that were benchmarked were clocked at 1.6 Ghz. I am still hoping that this turns out to be a dual-core CPU. If a single-core Intel processor is able to keep up with dual-core TIs, then I can only imagine a dual-core processor (clocked higher, mind you) could definitely keep up with the new quad-core processors being released.

Must be qHD with some cut for on-screen buttons

That's actually exactly what it is, as you can see by the picture. The XT890 is just the global version of the RAZR M which we have already seen this past week.

The PC I first worked is 80286 with 20MB HDD (Yes, HardDisk and NOT RAM) That 20MB HDD is partitioned to 2 Drives and that 10MB second drive is used for Backup...

would be great to see the day when intel comes out with a quad core cpu with turbo boosting tech and hyper threading and producing a beast of a smartphone. Well they are keeping it safe and slow atm.....

This is the same Medfield they already have in phones, just clocked higher. Possibly with a newer PowerVR GPU.
Interesting..can't wait for the battery test
