Used to work at Intel (1984-2011). They could never get into the cellphone market then, is it still the case now?
thx

Intel mostly bailed from the smartphone market in 2016, cancelling the future Atom processors for smartphones. In fact, I think Atom directly from Intel is only available for embedded systems at present.

However, they did keep a deal going with Asian cellular modem maker Spreadtrum for embedded Atom cores. These have shown up in very low end phones, in 2017 and 2018 at least.
