  • The Grand X IN comes with a prominent Intel logo on the rear. You don't see that with ARM-based phones, but then Intel handsets are much more of a rarity.

    The device has a 4.3-inch screen with a 960 x 540-pixel resolution, and an 8MP camera, which ZTE says will be capable of 10-frame bursts in under a second.

    It also has a 0.3MP forward-facing camera.

  • The Grand X IN will ship with Android 'Ice Cream Sandwich' 4.0. It's not the latest iteration, Jelly Bean, but it does beat the San Diego's Android 2.3.
