Motorola & Lenovo Android smartphones to use Intel Atom chip

Chip maker Intel has partnered with Motorola & Lenovo. Under the partnership, Motorola & Lenovo will use Intel’s latest Medfield chip in their upcoming Android smartphones. The announcement was made at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2012.

Just last month, Intel unveiled its latest Medfield chip or Intel Atom processor Z2460 that will run on Android smartphones & tablets. Medfield’s system-on-chip design packs an X86-architecture central processing unit (CPU), RAM memory, storage and an Imagination Technologies-designed graphics processing unit all onto the same chip using the firm’s established 32 nanometre manufacturing technology.

In a statement, Motorola described the partnership as ” a multi-year, multi-device strategic relationship”. It said that it will collaborate with Intel across hardware, software and services to deliver complete solutions and disruptive new user experiences that offer long battery life, increased computing performance, advanced imaging and video capabilities, and seamless wireless connections.

Lenovo is expected to launch a Medfield-based phone in China before July, while Motorola would sell its first handset in the second half of the year with others devices to follow.
