At the Intel Developers Forum in Beijing, China, today, ZTE debuted the ZTE Geek, a 5-inch handset featuring a 2GHz Intel 32nm Atom Z2580 processor.

The device also features an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, and a front-facing, 1-megapixel camera. Inside, you'll find a 2,300mAh battery.

As for capacity, the Geek has 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM. It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and its HD touch screen has a 1,280x720-pixel resolution.

Despite its rather insipid name, I like what I'm seeing with the Geek -- on paper, at least. Just as we saw with the announcements of the ZTE Grand S and Grand Memo, the Chinese manufacturer is keeping its promise that it will look to release more higher-end devices.

However, none of the recent heavy-hitters have come to our shores yet. ZTE did say the Grand S will come to the U.S. this year, but until that happens, we'll just have to wait.
