Intel today announced its next-generation series of smartphone mobile processors, one aimed at low-end devices and the second targeting mid-range devices. The Z2420 is an update to last year's Z2220 and will be used in devices for emerging markets. It features Intel Hyper-Threading and speeds up to 1.2GHz; 1080p hardware-accelerated encode/decode; and the ability to use two cameras with advanced imaging features. The Z2420 packs the XMM 6265 HSPA+ modem, which supports dual-mode SIMs. The second chip, the Z2580, is an update to the Z2460 and should appear in mainstream smartphones. Intel said the Z2580 will deliver up to two times the performance benefits of the Z2460, while also offering competitive power and battery life. The chips will be available later this year.
