ZTE Grand X IN appears as first ICS smartphone with Intel Inside

This week at IFA 2012 the folks at ZTE have introduced a brand new fabulous-looking Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone with an Intel Medfield processor inside. This device has an Atom X2460 under the hood for next-level processing power and works with a casing that's quite unique to the world of smartphone in its hatched-back battery cover physical patterning. The rest of the device looks rather like a Galaxy Nexus, and certainly hasn't changed a whole lot since we saw an earlier iteration just a few months back.

This smartphone has a 4.3-inch 960 x 540 pixel resolution display and it sports a powerful 8 megapixel camera on the back with single LED flash. Inside you'll find ZTE's custom user interface over Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, this affording you all the great features of the next-to-newest operating system from Google with ZTE's bubble flair. You'll see rounded corners around square icons and your very own high definition widgets with weather, time, and date as well.

This device will work with 4G HSPA+ up to 21Mpbs and has Intel Hyper-Threading Technology embedded within. With this technology and the Intel XMM 6260 Platform you'll be working with ultra-fast web browsing and an all-around super speedy user experience throughout the device.

Under the hood you've also got a 1650mAh battery for all-day up time as well as 1GB of RAM with either 4 or 16GB of ROM. You'll also have the ability to expand your memory by 32GB with this device's microSD card slot. You've got a front-facing 0.3 megapixel camera for video chat, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1 + A2DP, Dolby sound, RM Radio, Accelerator, Gyroscope, Compass, Proximity senros, and Light sensor as well.

Have a peek at the timeline below to see more on the history of this model as it appeared earlier this year with slightly different specifications – and note that what we're seeing above appears to be the final version, coming out in Europe at the start of next month!
