ZTE Grand S makes high definition incredibly thin




Smartphones with brilliant, oversized, high-definition screens are making waves at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. The Sony Xperia Z and ZL made their debut this week, only to be followed by an impressive phone from another giant in the smartphone industry — ZTE.

ZTE says its new Grand S is the thinnest phone with a 5-inch screen phone. Like the Droid DNA by HTC and Xperia Z and ZL, the Grand S features 1,920-by-1,080 pixel resolution. That’s kind of image quality that, until recently, you could only get on a HDTV.

It takes a lot of processing power to drive this kind of resolution, and the features that go with it. Under the hood of the Grand S you'll find a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S4 Pro processor (quad-core CPUs, 1.7GHz), similar to the one found in the Xperia Z, ZL, and Droid DNA. It’s backed by 2 GB of memory and 16 GB of storage.




A sophisticated phone like this needs built-in 4G LTE, which the Grand S has thanks to its Qualcomm Gobi™ 4G modem. It also comes with a 13 Megapixel camera that supports facial recognition, panoramic shooting, and 1080p video capture. The phone’s Dolby Digital surround sound system delivers the kind of sound audiophiles will rave about.

The ZTE Grand S will be available in China in the end of the first quarter, and we’re watching to see if it will come to the U.S.
