ZTE Grand S now official, packs 5-inch 1080p display

First leaked back in December, the ZTE Grand S has now become official as the companies next flagship handset. The Grand S comes with s a 5-inch screen and joins the pack of full HD 1080p display smartphones.

The Grand S is also among the thinnest of the full HD smartphones announced this week at CES. At 6.9mm, its half a millimeter short of Alcatel’s One Touch Idol Ultra (6.45mm) which currently holds the title as thinnest smartphone.

ZTE Grand S specs:
5.0-inch Full HD 1080p display @ 1920×1080 pixels, 441ppi
Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.7GHz quad-core processor
16GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, dual-band, DLNA
GPS w/ aGPS support
13MP rear autofocus camera, LED flash
1080p video recording @ 30fps
2MP front-facing camera, 1080p video
Dolby Digital Sound
Li-Ion battery 1780mAh
Android 4.1 Jellybean

Everything looks pretty good and the handset design is actually real nice. However, the battery capacity is merely 1780mAh which might pose as a concern. We really can’t blame ZTE if that’s the best they can squeeze into that 6.9mm body.

    I wish phones with these specs have dual sim functionality…

      Not possible with a slim profile. It will require more battery to operate two radios at the same time.

    WTF ZTE? Flare is almost 1500mah battery and cant last for 4 hours of gaming.

    You put 1780 battery into a quad core with 1080p display?

    1-2 hrs of gaming or video playback?

    I think, kelangan nyang naka plug parati sa charger kung gaming ang gusto mo. lol! grabe naman yang 1780mah. Medyo dehado sa battery power.

  5. DTech says:

    Nice! But the battery, unforgivable hahah! Well, for sure it will hit the market at a very friendly price.

    There are other options anyway, like the Oppo Find 5, HTC Butterfly and the best for the moment, XPERIA Z and ZL.

    Specs-sheet is promising, except for the FREAKIN’ battery!
