First smartphone from the company to run on Intel's Atom processor platform.
ZTE forged a partnership with Intel last month, declaring future devices would sport the latter's new Z2580 Atom processor platform, and the ZTE Geek is the company's first smartphone to feature the tech.
The new chip claims to be twice as fast for computing and three times as fast for graphics than its predecessor, while reducing power consumption. Meanwhile, the Geek comes with a five-inch HD screen, Android Jelly Bean power, 8MP rear camera, and a 1MP front-facing camera.
He Shiyou, EVP and head of the mobile devices division, ZTE, said: "Our recent collaboration with Intel on the ZTE Geek builds off of the success of the Grand Series and further enhances our competitiveness in the high-end smartphone market. This partnership also will improve customer experiences by providing them with more choices in the market."
ZTE unveiled the Geek at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) Spring 2013 in Beijing, and is also set to showcase its Intel-based V98 tablet and Grand X IN smartphone.
