When build a FireMonkey application for Android platform, the apk file generate these binary lib files:
armeabi, armeabi-v7a and mips only (I extract the apk file and looks for lib folder).

The Android NDK do have the x86 library, is that possible to compile FireMonkey application for Android equipped with Intel ATOM x86 CPU?

Not directly, no. Delphi's Android compiler only supports output for
ARM at this time. Support for Intel CPUs was on Delphi's roadmap a
couple of years ago, but is not on the current roadmap.

However, Delphi Android apps may work on Intel devices that have
Intel's Houdini library installed (most but not all Intel devices do
nowadays), which allows executing ARM code on Intel CPUs.

On the other hand, FreePascal 3.0+ supports compiling for Android x86.
