It looks like Chinese manufacturer ZTE may have beaten Motorola to the Intel-powered phone announcement punch, today unveiling the ZTE Grand X IN. You may remember that Motorola is planning an announcement involving Intel for September 18th.

The Grand X IN looks to be a mid-range device, carrying a 4.3" qHD TFT display (that's 540x960 resolution), an 8MP rear camera with a VGA shooter around front, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage (expandable via microSD), NFC, and of course an Intel Atom Z2460 processor with just one core clocked at 1.6GHz. The processor does, however, support Intel's Hyper Threading Technology, which allows multiple threads to run on a single core. The phone will also ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a meager-sounding 1650mAh battery.


No exact information is available at present regarding availability or pricing, except that the device is expected to arrive in Europe at some point this September. Of course we'll keep you updated as more details come to light.
