A new smartphone code-named Redhookbay has appeared in benchmark listings. Powered by the 1.6GHz Intel Merrifield dual-core processor, the smartphone apparently runs using Android 4.2.1.
The benchmark listing also reveals the device features like 1280x720p HD display, and PowerVR SGX 544MP GPU.
Intel Redhookbay seems like a reference design so we might start to see the devices depending on it as early as Mobile World Congress 2013. A written report from Taiwanese publication Digitimes also shows that Intel is intending to showcase new Atom processor along with a new smartphone platform at MWC.
Intel, that is trying hard to make a stand it smartphone market, is yet to be at the core of the popular smartphone and a lot of the Intel-powered Android devices have seen average success at best. Even the top manufacturers like Samsung, Sony or HTC are yet to go for Intel processors in their devices as well as the chipmaker is left dealing with select companies like Motorola, ZTE and Lava for smartphones.
The main specifications are as follows:
- Intel made
- 1.6Ghz ~ 2.0Ghz processor (Atom presumably)
- PowerVR SGX544MP GPU
- Android 4.2.1 JellyBean
