which are seeing tremendous growth across globally. Making the first public phone call using a smartphone reference design based on the dual-core Intel SoFIA 3G solution, James said  Intel will in the first half of 2015 bring in a quad-core SoFIA LTE part and a quad-core SoFIA 3G derivative for entry-level tablets.

This product could help Intel tap into the local manufacturer market in India too. “There is an ecosystem of developers and innovators that Rockship is well connected with. We want them to grow up and work with Intel products,” James explained.

Another, product that the company is betting big on is the Asus Zenphone. These budget phones, sized between 4 and 6 inches, could be available in India this month itself.

But does this mean Intel is shifting focus? No says, James: “Our number one priority has been to be a leader in semi-conductor technology. That has not changed. We are applying that leadership more broadly now.”
