Various tech informations along with tittle-tattle news have been started to arrive on the scene as a welcome sign of the annual Consumer Electronics Show, approaching shortly. Among the recently found rumors the most interesting one has been come from LG. At the CES scheduled from 10th – 14th January at the Vegas Convention Center LG is bringing an all new Intel powered smartphone, the Korea Times has reported.
The mobile handset is expected to feature Intel’s brand new Medfield chipset and Android’s mobile Operating System (although the version has not yet been known). Lee Hee-Sung, Intel Korea’s chief has declared that the aforementioned mobile handset will be available in stores as soon as March, 2012. He has also mentioned that the chief executive of Intel Paul Otellini will be seen releasing Intel’s first Android smartphone on Intel’s own platform at the CES.
A senior official of LG has also informed the Korea Times that LG Electronics will be responsible for designing the first Android phone from Intel using Intel’s very own mobile platform. He has also mentioned that the phone is planned to appear at the coming CES.
At the CES 2012 both LG and Intel together presented a phone prototype. But the prototype failed to make its way to stores. However the dual core Atom based Moorestown chipset that Intel developed was found to impress people at the show.
Newspapers are differing still on the point of the release of LG-Intel smartphone at the CES. Clouds of doubt have been raised by an LG executive, expressing that LG may bring under light the reference of Intel mobile but it will take huge financial support on Intel’s part for the promotion. Unfortunately both of the companies have denied confirming any thing about the phone or the releasing date. So, we are left with only one choice and that is to wait for the CES and to find out whether the phone makes it ways to CES or not.
