Furthermore, the platform is said to deliver up to 3 times better graphics capabilities over the previous Atom processors, while offering the same battery life.

“The Grand X IN was ZTE’s first flagship smartphone in Europe to feature Intel Inside. We’ve launched it successfully across Europe in strong cooperation with Intel, and as a result have significantly increased our brand awareness in these important markets,” said Mr. Ao Wen, General Manager of ZTE Europe Mobile Devices.

“We are looking forward to both continuing and broadening the relationship with Intel to support ZTE’s growth in the high performance smartphone market segment. Intel is one of our strategic partners in the development of cutting-edge new mobile technologies.”
