ZTE has unveiled its first Intel-based mobile phone, the Grand X IN.

The device will be the first smartphone using Intel's architecture to be released in Europe by a manufacturer. Orange has already brought out an Intel-based Android handset, the San Diego.

The Grand X IN is in effect a variant of the ARM-powered Grand X, although this time it uses an Intel Medfield processor, the 1.6GHz Z2460.

According to ZTE, the handset will provide 26 hours of usage.

It will be available from September and October, depending on the country, and ZTE predicts multiple operator partners.

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.
