Intel to showcase dual-core Atom powered Android phones at MWC

Intel has revealed that it will be demoing more devices sporting its new dual core, dual graphics platform at the upcoming Mobile World Congress.  Dubbed as Atom Z2580, the SoC was spotted at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013 in Lenovo IdeaPhone K900. It packs two CPU cores, two PowerVR SGX 544 GPU cores, and a speedy LTE or faster HSPA+ connection.

Intel is expected to demo Android devices running on Atom Z2580 in Barcelona. Company has not specifically mentioned any smartphones names, but given the company’s partnership with Lava and Acer for Lexington platform based entry-level devices, we might see Atom Z2580 phones too from the same companies. Motorola is also a candidate to launch Atom 2580 powered Android phones, as it has already launched one Intel-powered phone – RAZR i.
