The Lava International XOLO X900 will be the first smartphone powered by an Intel Atom processor. It goes on sale in India for about $423, starting April 23rd.

Xolo X900

The XOLO X900 features a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Z2460 low power processors with support for 1080p HD video recording and playback. The phone runs Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread at launch, but an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich software update will be available soon.

Intel’s new Atom processor is designed to compete with ARM-based chips, offering reasonably high performance without straining battery life. Intel says the XOLO X900 can get up to 8 hours of talk time, 5 hours of web browsing over 3G, or 45 hours of audio playback.

The phone has a 4.3 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, support for HSPA+ mobile broadband,  GPS, an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera. It has stereo speakers, and the usual array of sensors including an accelerometer, gyroscope, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor as well as a magnetometer.

The Xolo X900 measures 4.8″ x 2.5″ x 0.4″ and weighs 4.5 ounces.

Intel is also working with  Lenovo and Orange on smartphones that will be available in China and Europe in the coming months. There’s no word on when we’ll start to see Intel Atom-powered smartphones in the US.
