ZTE to announce 5-inch Grand S at CES

Details on the official CES website tell us that ZTE will announce a new 5-inch smartphone on January 8.

Touted as the new flagship handset for the Chinese manufacturer, the Grand S is expected to be the thinnest 5-inch 1080p handset in the world. With nearly every smartphone maker around getting in on the large and high-resolution displays it will be fun to watch them compete to differentiate.

Be the first to see the brand new Grand S, ZTE’s flagship handset in its high-end Grand Series of products. ZTE’s first FHD smartphone is also the world’s thinnest for 5 inch FHD smartphones. Made of ceramic and featuring traditional Chinese style, the Grand S is the perfect phone for the fashionable set.

We’re finding that ZTE is slowly but surely getting more active in the United States, often less expensive than what other makers choose to offer. It would not surprise us to learn that Sprint or a prepaid carrier ultimately supports the Grand S but with a different name.

In a related note, the rumored Nubia Z5 may be the Grand 5 or a variation of said device.
