Orange plans new Intel-powered Android smartphone for the UK this summer

Orange has announced plans to introduce an Android-powered smartphone using the new Intel Atom Z2460 processor. The phone, which is currently codenamed ‘Orange Santa Clara,’ will be launched in the UK and France this summer.

Based on Intel’s smartphone reference design, the new Orange-branded handset is expected to have a 4-inch screen, an 8 megapixel camera and 16GB of memory. It’ll run Android’s Gingerbread platform at launch with a planned upgrade to Android’s v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to follow.

Yves Maitre, Senior Vice President of Mobile Multimedia and Devices at Orange, said “The proliferation of smartphones has brought a wealth of new experiences. At Orange we firmly believe that all our customers should benefit from the smartphone revolution, and we remain committed to delivering innovative content and services across a wide range of devices to help customers stay connected and get more from their phone. For ten years, Orange has pioneered a successful own-branded approach to delivering to its customers high quality, affordable handsets in all price ranges, packed with locally relevant and unique services and features. We are delighted to be partnering with Intel to add such an exceptional device to our portfolio.”
