ZTE Geek pops up at IDF in Beijing: Powered by dual-core Atom processor!

   Over in China there's this big tech fair called IDF going on. IDF stands for the Intel Developer Forum and everyone who's any one is there and they're showing off what they're busy doing with Intel's silicon. At the moment Intel are having a big push into mobile with new Atom chips being faster and better than last years equivalents.

   That's where ZTE have come in today. At the company's booth at IDF there's the ZTE Geek, it's an Android Jelly Bean powered device, which in spite of its painful name, isn't actually too shabby. On the inside there's an 8-megapixel rear and a 1-megapixel front-facing camera set up, 8GB of internal space, 1GB of RAM, a 2,300mAh battery and the option for wireless charging. On the outside there's a 5" 720p display coated in Gorilla Glass.

   The star attraction here though is the brand new 2GHz Clover Trail+ Atom processor which when we checked the details on turns out to be the dual-core Z2580 processor, so this phone should absolutely fly. 

   According to Engadget this device was hastily put together so the external look might change a little before it's officially launched, but the internals will be staying exactly as they are. ZTE's Executive Vice President and Head of the Mobile Devices Division, He Shiyou, also said:
 “Our recent collaboration with Intel on the ZTE GEEK builds off of the success of the Grand Series and further enhances our competitiveness in the high-end smartphone market... This partnership also will improve customer experiences by providing them with more choices in the market.”
