ZTE definitely looks to be bringing us a new superphone at the biggest technology conference of the year. They were rumored to be bringing a hot new superphone before, and that’s all but confirmed with event information posted to the CES press page.
The name of the phone will be the ZTE Grand S, and it will be a 5 inch smartphone that features full-HD resolution. ZTE will claim a new “world’s thinnest smartphone” tag within the 5 inch category. That seems like very forced marketing considering there’s not much to compete with in that range as the HTC DROID DNA and Butterfly J are the only notable phones meeting that specific specification so far.
While we can’t be too sure about the rest of the specs we can do a tad bit of guesstimating. I’d be surprised to see anything less than a quad-core chipset and 1GB of RAM alongside an 8 megapixel camera and at least 16GB of internal storage, but anything can and will happen to kick the new year off so we will wait until ZTE gives us the full, official rundown starting January 8th.
The build quality of the phone will be most notable as it’s said to be made out of an unusual ceramic material. The phone will provide traditional Chinese flare in its design, as well. ZTE might not be the most exciting name in the market in this day but with it’s starting to pull a Huawei in that it’s attempting to reshape its image into being a high-end OEM. We’ll see if they can pull that off starting early next month.
