Intel introduced its new Lexington (Z2420) platform for mobile devices at CES 2o13, a follow-up to its previous Medfield SoC, however, aimed at emerging markets. The chipset is optimized for Android applications and the processor clocks as high as 1.2GHz, making use of hyper-threading technology. There is support for five-megapixel main camera and 1.3-megapixel webcam, 1080p 30 fps video and HSPA+ data speeds. Graphics duties are carrier out by the PowerVR SGX 540 GPU.
Acer and Xolo are already employing the Lexington platform in their smartphones, as pictured above. However, no more details or hands-on time was allowed with these mid-rangers which should arrive to the market at a very attractive price-point, given the modest hardware capabilities.
