Few weeks ago at CES 2013, ZTE announced its 2013 flagship device Grand S, which is ZTE’s second handset sporting a Full HD display. Now, the ZTE Grand S is reportedly available for sale in select stores in China for 4799 Yuan ($771). Earlier it was also reported that the ZTE Grand S will be available in Chinese markets in the first quarter of this year.
The ZTE Grand S is very similar to ZTE Nubia Z5 handset in their specifications. Both the devices are packed with Quad-core Qualcomm S4 Processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5-inch 1080 display, a 13 Mega-Pixel camera, and both support LTE capability as well. The ZTE Nubia Z5 is available for 3400 Yuan ($546) for the regular white unibody version. It’s over $200 less than the ZTE Grand S handset.
The Grand S is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean mobile operating system with a 1.7GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon Processor from Qualcomm which is 220MHz clock speed more than the new Sony Xperia Z/ZL, HTC Droid DNA and many other Android powered devices, a 2 megapixel front facing camera, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD slot for memory expansion up to 32GB, 4G LTE support and 1780mAh battery. It is likely to be a tough-competitor for the 5-inch Huawei Ascend D2 smartphone in China which is packed with a 5-inch Super Retina display with a 1080p resolution, a 1.5GHz K3V2 Quad-Core processor, a 13MP Exmor Camera, 2GB of RAM, a 3000mAh battery and more.
Though reports point that the Grand S will available in select stores, there is still no details of these stores. More details are awaited.
