Lenovo Announces The First 64-bit Intel Atom-Powered Smartphone With Intel LTE Advanced Modem

Over the years we have accustomed to smartphone sporting Qualcomm or MediaTek chip. Sure, there are a few Intel-powered examples, but they don’t quite make the number to be considered a ‘norm’ among smartphone makers.

Well, theoretically, that is. We wouldn’t say the design is jaw-dropping. In fact, we thought most handsets look pretty much the same these days. After all, humans’ hands are pretty similar, don’t they? Try some out of the ordinary design like the Blackberry Passport, things may just turn awry.
