ZTE Grand S

One of the common themes among smartphones being announced at CES 2013 is the 5 inch display and 1080p resolution.  This theme confirms the trend of Android smartphones, with each generation receiving a larger screen and better display.  The ZTE Grand S follows with the trend nicely, as it offers a 5 inch display with 1080p resolution as its main feature.

Other hardware specs include a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear facing camera, 2MP front facing camera, 16GB of onboard memory, 4G LTE connectivity, and is only 6.9mm thick.  On the software side, the device runs Android Jelly Bean, but ZTE did not specify whether it is Android 4.1 or Android 4.2.

As of now, it is scheduled to debut in China sometime during Q1 of 2013.  Hopefully, it will launch in other markets because ZTE created one  heck of a flagship device that could potentially do well elsewhere.
