[CES 2013] Hands-On With Intel’s Lexington System Reference Phone

In case you hadn’t noticed, Intel really unveiled a new smartphone chip at CES DIVERSES. It’s just not a particularly exciting one. Lexington, as the known, will be marketed mainly in emerging parts of the world – believe Southeast Asia and also Africa – in handsets that will probably carefully mimic the reference point design you observe below within the hands-on movie.

I’ll admit – there may be not a whole lot for this point. It has a small 2. 7″ display, isn’t especially thin (actually, it’s quite thick), and also feels low-cost.

Phones based on this platform will probably be as cheap or maybe even less expensive than some of the most affordable hardware manufactured by famous brands Sony, THE BRAND NEW HTC, and also Samsung (eg, sub-$100) — with regional OEMs keeping costs straight down.

So far as my own impressions, the phone is really pretty quick, though it really is running Android 4. 0. Intel says an Android four. 1 image isn’t remote, but was too buggy to put on show at the show. Apart from that — there isn’t much to state. New Intel chip, new reference point design that OEMs will closely imitate in retail handsets.
