ZTE Grand X2 is Powered By Atom Processor, Coming to Europe in the Fall

While ZTE might not be as well known as major brands like Sony, Samsung, HTC and LG – it is a decent Chinese handset maker with a reasonable international presence, and it’s latest ZTE Grand X2 doesn’t look half bad.

The newest phone sets itself apart from the competition by ditching the ARM processor in favor of an Intel Atom 2GHz Z2580 processor. While it is certainly not the first Intel smartphone, they still are somewhat of a rare breed, so this is an interesting enough choice.

Outside of the processor, the phone has 8GB storage, 1GB RAM, microSD support, 2000mAh battery, 8MB rear cam, and a 4.5-inch display with a 720p resolution. There is also Android Jelly Bean onboard.

What seems a bit odd is pairing a fast 2GHz Atom with only 8GB storage. Still, this should be a reasonably high-end device, and yet will still likely have a pretty low cost compared to “more mainstream” brands.

So when is it coming? No specific date, simply a project fall release for Europe. No word on other markets like North America, but considering the United State’s recent attitude towards Chinese carriers, I wouldn’t be that surprised if ZTE decided to skip releasing the phone stateside.
