ZTE Geek with Intel Clover Trail+ Atom

Today, Chinese mobile phone maker ZTE announced the upcoming availability of its first smartphone to pack an Intel Clover Trail+ Atom processor, namely the ZTE Geek.

The new device was made official at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) Spring 2013 at the China National Convention Center in Beijing, and will hit shelves with the 32nm Z2580 platform inside, featuring two cores clocked in at 2.0GHz each. Featuring a 5-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering a 1280 x 720 pixel HD resolution, the new mobile phone will hit shelves with Google’s Android Jelly Bean platform loaded on top right from the start. Furthermore, the ZTE Geek packs 1GB of RAM, along with 8GB of internal memory, and features an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, along with a 1MP front camera for making video calls. The specs list of the new device also includes a 2300 mAh battery. According to ZTE, the Clover Trail+ processor inside this device will deliver increased performance capabilities to users, while also offering better graphics and reduced power consumption. “Our recent collaboration with Intel on the ZTE Geek builds off of the success of the Grand Series and further enhances our competitiveness in the high-end smartphone market,” said ZTE EVP and Head of the Mobile Devices Division, Mr. He Shiyou.

“This partnership also will improve customer experiences by providing them with more choices in the market.” The mobile phone will be released with support for UMTS 900/2100 frequencies, as well as with Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and built-in GPS receiver, Engadget reports. According to ZTE, the new device will be released as part of its focus on the high end of the market, though no specific details on when that might happen have been provided as of now. “ZTE has long emphasized the importance of user experiences. A key component of this is its longstanding partnership with Intel. When Intel first entered the mobile microchip field in 2012, ZTE released its first Intel-based smartphone, the Grand X IN, shortly thereafter,” the company said.

“This allowed ZTE to become the first company to launch a flagship smartphone powered by an Intel processor in the European market. The Grand X IN later became become the best-selling smartphone in Austria.”
