Intel’s revenue from Atom series of CPUs is going down, partly due to competition from AMD and partly from phones transforming into phablets, not to mention growing popularity of tablets. Well Intel is all set to turn the tables.
At MWC 2013, it showcased it’s latest lineup of Atom processors. The newest Atom chip, codenamed “Clover Trail+is aimed at smartphones and tablets. The chip giant’s smartphone reference design based on Clover Trail+ offers energy efficiency and battery life is comparative to current standards of Android devices. The dual-core chips come in three models – the Z2580, Z2560 and Z2520 – that run from 1.2GHz to 2.0GHz.
At their kiosk at the MWC, they had two phones- one from Lenovo and another one without any label or markings of any sort. Maybe it was an in house reference phone.

If what Intel has claimed is true, then the day is not far when it will compete with Qualcomm and others and eat a chunk of their share.
It is currently working with Acer, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, LG, and Samsung on future prospects.
