ZTE Grand S II 5.5 inch 4G phablet surfaces
ZTE's first high-precision voice phone touches down
ZTE has unveiled the Grand S II as its new flagship Android phablet at CES 2014. It comes fully loaded with 4G connectivity, a 1080p display, Snapdragon 800 processor and a 13 megapixel snapper.
The Chinese company launched its predecessor to the Grand S II almost a year ago in January 2013. As you'd expect the Grand S II is a significant improvement on the ZTE Grand S.
The 5.5 inch 1080x1920p display is a step up from the smaller 5 inch 1080p on the Grand S, whilst the 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor will ensure there is plenty of processing power when needed.
The Grand S II sports a 13 megapixel main camera, a 2 megapixel secondary camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of memory storage and a 3000mAh battery. It will ship with Android Jelly Bean (4.3) which is overlaid with ZTE’s proprietary user interface.
There was no mention of a planned update to Android KitKat (4.4), but we presume it'll roll-out for the smartphone in the coming months.
Voice control is a bit part of the the Grand S II which can be unlocked and take pictures via voice commands alone. The clever technology can be set up to recognise the voices of multiple people and the 'My-Drive' feature enhances voice recognition while in a vehicle for improved hands-free control.
ZTE have not confirmed the price or launch date of the ZTE Grand S II, but it's expected to land in March. As soon as get fresh information about the mobile we'll update our article.
