Lava Xolo switches platform form Clover Trail to Intel Medfield

Lava and Intel are ready to launch a new smartphone by March 14th in India. Intel claims that the device will be the “fastest smartphone ever”.

Intel showed off its new line-up of Clover Trail+ processors at MWC 2013. The smartphones which will hit market in 2013 are expected to be powered with Z2520, Z2560 and the Z2580 processors. Since Lava claims that the new smartphone in the Xolo lineup will be the fastest ever, we think it will run on the Z2580.

The Z2580 sports a 2.0GHz dual-core processor with Hyper-Threading which keeps it in-line with quad-core processors. It will be supported by the dual PowerVR SGX 544MP2 GPU chips, which are capable of outputting a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels. The chipset is capable of handling a rear camera up to 16MP along with a front-facing 2MP camera.

Reports suggest that the upcoming Xolo smartphone may run on the Intel Medfield Z2460 SoC clocked at 2GHz. This is the same SoC that powers the Motorola Razr i. The Razr i launched in October 2012 and is powered by the 2 GHz Intel Atom Medfield Z2460 processor, 1GB of RAM and the PowerVR SGX540 GPU.

However, the Intel Atom Medfield Z2460 processor was launched in 2012 and can be considered a bit old when compared to the Qualcomm S4 series, which is powering smartphones including the Optimus G, Nexus 4 and more or the S4 Pro which is powering the HTC Butterfly and the Xperia Z or the S600 which is powering the HTC One. All these devices are behemoths with their raw performance. The Intel Clover Trail+ Z2580 is a more likely candidate to power the upcoming Lava device as it is a newer SoC and is touted to have the potential of a quad-core processor in theory thanks to its Hyper-Threading capabilities.
