9th January 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, January 08, 2013: Intel has launched its latest Atom Z2420 processor, named Lexington, that will cater to affordable Android smartphones for markets like India. Acer, Lava and Safaricom are the first hardware partners that will launch the first smartphone based on Intel’s reference design. The Lexington, as Intel mentioned, features a 1.2 GHz processor with hyper-threading, a 8.8-cm (3.5-inch) HVGA display, XMM6225 HSPA+ modem and Imagination SGX 540 graphics processor.

Lexington will offer dual-SIM, dual-standby, feature FM radio, 1080p hardware-accelerated encode/decode, and support for up to two cameras delivering advanced imaging capabilities, including burst mode that allows people to capture seven pictures in less than a second in 5 MP quality.

Sid Mike Bell, Vice President and General Manager, Mobile and Communications Group, Intel, said, “The addition of the low-power Atom platform enables Intel to address new market segments and further rounds out our expanding portfolio of smartphone offerings.” He further added, “We believe the experience that comes with Intel Inside will be a welcomed choice by first-time buyers in emerging markets.”

Lexington, the affordable Android-based smartphone is expected to be priced around the Rs 7,000 mark.
