ZTE Shows-Off Grand S, Its Second 1080p Android

Since late last month, we’ve been expecting ZTE to bring its Grand S Android to display at the CES. There hasn’t been any real secret about the phone’s debut – ZTE even calls the phone out by name in the title for its CES press event, set to get started in just a few minutes. That may explain why we’re not even waiting until then to bring you news on the Grand S, as ZTE has already let the cat out of the bag with this 1080p smartphone.

Like so many of these other first wave 1080p handsets, the ZTE Grand has a five-inch display. The phone’s powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon, packs 2GB of RAM, and features a 13-megapixel main camera.

We might hope for some better-than-average sound quality, thanks to Dolby Digital Surround support, and just like we were expecting, the Grand S is seriously thin, measuring-in at 6.9 millimeters.

All in all, there’s really very little making the Grand S stand out from the already-announced Nubia Z5. Neither phone is currently slated to make an appearance outside of China anytime soon, and honestly, the Grand S might be a little worse than the Z5, with a slightly-smaller 1780mAh battery; that sounds just a bit underpowered for a big, power-hungry display.

We’ll update you if any new info comes out at ZTE’s event, but it’s looking like we already have the full picture on the Grand S.
