MegaFon Announces First Smartphone With Intel

MegaFon has announced the launch of its first ever smartphone with Intel Inside technology.

The MegaFon Mint will be available to customers across the mobile phone operator's retail stores and online. The retail price will be 17,990 Rubles (£357).

Its new device is based on Intel's Smartphone Reference Device, which includes the Intel Atom processor with Hyper-Threading technology.

MegaFon is the second largest mobile phone operator and the fourth largest telecom network in Russia, with over 62 million subscribers.

The device features a matte black casing and 4.03-inch LCD touchscreen that helps provide vibrant images and allows for easy use of the text function.

General manager of reference devices for Intel's Mobile and Communications Group Christopher McGuire said the company's engagement with MegaFon is a "step forward" in accelerating all round Intel adoption.

"We look forward to our continued collaboration with MegaFon and to bringing consumers in Russia new device experiences enabled by Intel technology," he continued.
