ZTE is the latest manufacturer to reveal a new smartphone at CES, unveiling its 4G flagship Grand S.
A release date has only been confirmed for China, where it will go on sale during the first quarter of this year. The device has a five-inch screen, has a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.7GHz quad-core processor and runs Android Jelly Bean. It has a 13-megapixel camera and 2-megapixel front facing camera. Among the camera functions are face recognition, anti-shake and a panoramic camera. At 6.9mm thick, ZTE said the device is the world's thinnest quad-core smartphone with a five-inch screen.
Kan Yulun, corporate VP of ZTE and chief technical officer of its mobile device division, said: 'The ZTE Grand S gives our customers the latest in technology, functionality and style. We understand that today’s consumers call for advanced features and state-of-the-art multimedia options in their handsets. The ZTE Grand S confidently addresses those demands. It is fitting that we can announce the world debut of the ZTE Grand S at CES 2013, the world’s largest annual innovation event.'
It is the latest device to be unveiled this week that touts a large screen. Both Sony and Huawei opted for larger devices in their announcements earlier this week.
