XOLO to launch phone with Intel 'Clover Trail+' Atom processor on March 14
XOLO has recently started teasing a new smartphone on its official Facebook page and website. While not much is known about the phone, it will be officially announced on March 14
The company is calling it “Mission X” in its teaser, suggesting the phone will be part of its X-series. We did a little more digging and turns out, the phone will indeed be a part of company’s X-series and come with Intel’s Clover Trail+ platform based dual-core Atom processor. We could not get any other concrete details right now.
Whatever I am writing now is pure speculation based on XOLO’s previous Intel launches. XOLO has introduced two Intel-powered smartphones so-far in the Indian market and both the phones were based on Intel’s reference designs with little or no tweaking on the software part.
I believe that company is going to do the same with this upcoming device.
Intel showcased a new reference design along with its Clover Trail+ platform at the Mobile World Congress and it is very much likely the upcoming XOLO phone will be based on this reference design.
Now, if we take a look at the reference phone, it packs some massive specs, so unless XOLO and Intel step down some of the internals in this reference phone, it will be a phone in the category of Optimus G, S III or HTC Butterfly.
