Chinese mobile phone maker ZTE is set to unveil to the world a new 5-inch Android-based smartphone at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month, and some more info on it has emerged.Dubbed ZTE Grand S, the device has already been confirmed to make an official appearance at the event, yet no details on its capabilities have been formally unveiled for the time being.
However, following the emergence of a leaked photo with the device last week, a new set of images is now available for your viewing pleasure, accompanied by info on the hardware specifications for it.
Just as mentioned above, the Grand S will land on shelves with a 5-inch full HD (1920x1080 pixels) touchscreen on the front, and will also be capable of high-end performance capabilities.
Apparently, ZTE has packed the upcoming mobile phone with a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (APQ8064) processor, complemented by 2GB of RAM.
Furthermore, the handset will sport a 13-megapixel photo snapper on the back, while being powered by a 2,500 mAh battery.
Another feature that’s worth mentioning about the smartphone is the fact that it will be only 6.9mm thin when launched, making it one of the slimmest 5-inch Android devices in the world.
No other details on the Grand S have been confirmed for the time being, but rumor has it that it will be made out of a ceramic material.
ZTE is expected to make the new mobile phone official on January 8 in Las Vegas, which means that there are roughly two weeks left until we’ll be able to learn all about it.
In the meantime, we should note that the device is rumored to land on shelves at 2,799 yuan (around $450 / €340) in China. If true, the handset will prove much cheaper than the ZTE Nubia Z5, which sports about the same specs, and which is priced at about $100 more.
