ZTE, best known for their mid-range mobile devices, announced today their newest flagship device – the ZTE Grand X IN. This announcement comes just a little over two weeks after the announcement of the ZTE Grand X, but the highlight of the Grand X IN is that it’s the first Ice Cream Sandwich device in Europe powered by Intel Inside. The Intel Atom Z2460 processor with Intel Hyper-Threading should provide a more efficient and snappier experience than the Grand X. The device will share the same screen size as the Grand X (4.3-inches), however it will nearly double the RAM bringing it up to 1GB, and also pack an 8MP camera compared to the 5MP on the Grand X. Other features include a 1650 mAh battery, HSPA+ 21Mbps, and an expandable SD slot up to 32GB.
The device is planned for release in Europe in September. There is no word on pricing at this time, but as a comparison, the Grand X sits just short of the £200 mark on “pay as you go” so we can obviously expect the Grand X IN to come in a little north of that figure.
