Intel unveiled its plans at the Consumer Electronics Show, the world's biggest tech sector event, highlighting its efforts to get a bigger share of the sizzling mobile market.

Intel said its plans include "a new smartphone platform for emerging markets", one of the fastest growing areas for these devices.

"The best of Intel is coming to a mobile device near you," said Intel's Kirk Skaugen.

"We are set to deliver the biggest increase in battery efficiency in Intel's history... while adding broad new human interfaces to computing devices through touch, voice, facial recognition, and gesture-based interactions.
