ZTE today announced plans to embed the new Intel Atom Z2580 processor into its future smartphones. ZTE has already released at least one smartphone, the Grand X IN, with Intel processors inside. Intel revealed the dual-core Z2580 chip earlier this year. It offers clock speeds up to 2.0GHz per core and uses Hyper-Threading to help with multitasking. Intel claims the Z2580 delivers twice the computing power and three times the graphics performance of its predecessor while drawing the same amount of power. ZTE's news today follows an announcement it made several weeks ago wherein it promised to deliver a "super phone" based on the NVIDIA Tegra 4 platform before the middle of the year. ZTE didn't share any details of the device other than to say it will also use NVIDIA's i500 LTE modem. NVIDIA and Intel are both looking to steal marketshare from Qualcomm and its Snapdragon-branded mobile processors.
