CES 2013: ZTE Announces Android 4.1 Grand S Phablet With 5" Screen

Jelly Bean based device brings a quad-core CPU and 13 mp camera in its slim 6.9 mm body.


The rush of high-end phablets continues at CES 2013, as ZTE has unveiled its 5" handset. The latest entrant, called the Grand S, runs Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). Following the trend of the HTC Butterfly and the recently announced Lenovo IdeaPhone K900, the Grand S offers a Full HD (1080p) screen. A 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor runs the show. It features a 13 mp rear camera, 2 GB RAM, 4G LTE support, and 16 GB of internal storage. All this comes in a body that is as thin as just 6.9 mm, which is impressively slim for a phablet. Here's the list of specs confirmed by the manufacturer:

  • Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).
  • 4G LTE support.
  • 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB RAM.
  • 13 megapixel autofocus camera with flash, 2 megapixel front-facing 1080p camera.
  • 5" capacitive touchscreen with pixel dimensions of 1920x1080.
  • 16 GB of internal storage, 32 GB microSD card slot.
  • 1780 mAh battery.

The handset is expected to be launched by the end of March in China. However, just like most devices announced at this year's CES, there's no information regarding the pricing of the Grand S.
