XOLO to debut new Intel powered “fastest smartphone ever” on March 14th, in Goa, India
Several hours before Samsung’s banner event in New York, on the other side of the world in Goa, India, XOLO will be lifting the curtain off a successor to the X900, the company’s first “premium” handset, and the first smartphone with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor.

That CPU was from Intel’s Medfield series of processors. It is anticipated that this new device, whatever it may be called, will be packing new silicon from the new Clover Trail+ line of CPUs. The processors will be available in three calibrations, 2.0GHz (Z2580), 1.6GHz (Z2560) and 1.2GHz (Z2520). The Clover Trail+ chips support full HD and HSPA+, but LTE is not supported.  For a device dedicated to the Indian market that is not a loss as LTE is only available on one major carrier.

On the graphics front, the new Intel CPUs each have two PowerVR SGX 544MP2 GPUs, so the graphic performance should be decent. The Clover Trail+ will also support up to a 2MP camera in the front and up to 16MP for the main camera. Intel claims that the CPU will support up to 15 frames per second when the camera is in burst mode.

As for the upcoming device itself, we do not know a whole lot, other than what the rendering in the small scale press invitation reveals, the “fastest smartphone ever with Intel inside,” a shiny finish edge with a 3.5mm headphone jack and a power/lock button. We will let you know what is behind the curtain while we gear up for the Samsung unveiling of the Galaxy S4.

'shooted'? Don't you mean, 'shot'?

Come on... give Tusshar Ishware a break! I wouldn't know how to say or write the past tense of shoot in his native language in India much less carry on a dialogue. The way I see, he was able to communicate what he was trying to say and I was able to completely understand.

And now according to the pro-tech geeks, GSIV is now obsolete, like how HTC One is obsolete to GSIV and Xperia Z to HTC One plainly from spec sheets, without seeing the device or have a feel of it

Two SGX544MP2? Does that equal SGX544MP4? (the likely GPU in the Galaxy S4)

The GS4 is going to have a SGX544MP3, and this is iwo MP2s, it's like comparing two GTX680 to a GTX690, performance should be better but i think that not a lot of games are going to be optimized for dual GPUs

sgIt doesn't mean like that, Maxwell means to say that processor includes 2 blocks of PowerVR SGX544 GPU on chips hence SGX 544 MP2. If it would have included 3 blocks then it would have been SGX 544 MP3.It's common in mobile chips.

Guys please!! Two GPU's in a smartphone!? Read this: download.intel.com/newsroom/kits/mobileworld/2013/​pdfs/Intel_Atom_Processors_Brief.pdf (sorry, copy-paste in browser please) Its not two GPU's, just one same GPU(SGX 544MP2) at different clock speeds.

XOLO is the fastest phone in the World with crappy software and features can't beat Galaxy S4.
