ZTE will collaborate with Intel under a multi-year partnership to create smartphone products that will run the Atom Z2580 microprocessor, PCMag.com reported Tuesday.

The 533-megahertz Z25xx SoC products contain the Hyper-Threading technology from Intel, intended to support a 1080-pixel high-definition display, Damon Poeter writes.
Ao Wen, general manager of ZTE Europe’s mobile devices division, told PCMag.com ZTE is aiming to grow its relationship with Intel to grow in the high-performance smartphone market segment.
Last year, ZTE launched Grand X IN in Europe, its first smartphone that features Intel Inside.
