Intel has announced a range of new products, ecosystem and enabling efforts that will further accelerate the company’s presence in mobile and help usher in a range of new devices and richer experiences with Intel Inside®.
The announcements include a new dual-core Atom™ SoC ("Clover Trail+") platform for smartphones and Android tablets, and the company’s first global, multimode-multiband LTE solution. Other disclosures included “Bay Trail” momentum, a new multi-platform enabling program, and continued smartphone momentum in emerging markets with the Intel® Atom™ Z2420 processor-based platform.
“Today’s announcements build on Intel’s growing device portfolio across a range of mobile market segments,” said Naveed Siraj, Country Manager for Intel Pakistan. “In less than a year’s time we have worked closely with customers to bring 10 Intel-based smartphones to market in more than 20 countries, and have also delivered an industry-leading low-power tablet solution running Windows 8.”
Atom™ SoC Platform
Intel’s new Atom™ processor platform and smartphone reference design delivers industry-leading performance with low-power and long battery life that rivals today’s most popular Android phones. The product brings Intel’s classic product strengths, including high performance that lets you enjoy smooth Web browsing, vibrant, glitch-free, full HD movies, and an Android applications experience that launches fast and runs great.The imaging system also enables panorama capture, a 15 frame-per-second burst mode for 8 megapixel photos, real-time facial detection and recognition, and mobile HDR image capture with de-ghosting for clearer pictures in flight.
Long-Term Evolution (4G LTE)
Intel’s strategy is to deliver a leading low-power, global modem solution that works across multiple bands, modes, regions and devices. The Intel XMM 7160 is one of the world’s smallest and lowest-power multimode-multiband LTE solutions supporting multiple devices including smartphones, tablets and Ultrabooks™. The 7160 global modem supports 15 LTE bands simultaneously, more than any other in-market solution. The 7160 is a well-timed competitive solution for new emerging LTE networks.
Intel® Atom™ Platform Z2420
As Intel expands its geographic presence, the company sees tremendous opportunity in delivering rich Intel-based mobile experiences to consumers across emerging markets. As part of its strategy to take advantage of the growing market for value smartphones in emerging markets, Intel highlighted continuing momentum with the Intel Atom Processor Z2420 platform.
Tablets with Intel Inside®
Building on the device momentum and industry-leading power-efficiency of the award-winning Atom processor Z2760, Intel’s first quad-core Atom SoC ("Bay Trail"), will be the most powerful Atom processor to-date — doubling the computing performance of Intel’s current- generation tablet offering and providing the ecosystem with a strong technology foundation and feature set from which to innovate.
Enabling the Mobile Devices with Intel Inside®
Intel today announced an expansion of its ecosystem enabling efforts to deliver new device and market innovation across a range of Windows and Android-based mobile devices. The new program will focus on accelerating time to market for leading-edge mobile devices based on Intel® architecture with top OEMs and ODMs.
