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...

More chip options will mean more competitiveness between manufacturers.

i know right! but i dont know why the brains of people here dont think the same on mobile platform? we'll still see a lot of new platform this year, sailfish, firefox, tizen, open webOS and ubuntu!

the fact that they are all linux-base!

Why the hell do you want to see how a low-end processor stacks up against a high-end one O.o

that exynos 5 is nothing but just a show off and pure commercial, lets see if it can handle snapdragon 800!

Michael, can you check your article?
As far as I know the Z2580 is the dual core, dual core GPU one.
The Z2420 is single core CPU/ single core GPU cheap Atom.
Or there is now a 5th Atom mobile chip I'm not aware of ?

Sorry, forgot three crucial words. It should have read that Intel is planning to show off "a new dual-core, dual graphics chip, as well as the Z2420". All fixed now, thanks for the catch!

Umm octo is nothing great...innovative none the less but have 4 chips to high performance and another 4 for low.....meaning that chips have no versatility in performance...intel has Hyper-threading which is CRUCIAL for a good integration and Amazing response time and transfer rate between chips-gpu-ram and OS....i have the Note 2 which is quad but i'm guessing the dual core intel will be as performance based as quad if not more...and more battery efficient in standby/low performance .....example i5 core in laptop doesn't run at 3.0ghz the entire time it has that power but...it drops to 1.7-1.8ghz when not needed . So intel lenovo k900 looks extremely promising
