ZTE Grand S revealed, sticks 5inch 1080p screen in a 6.9mm thin frame

ZTE just revealed its latest smartphone, the Grand S at CES. Equipped with a 5inch 1080p display which is fast becoming the norm in high end handsets, the phone runs on a 1.7Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro chip. The OS of choice here is Android 4.1 JellyBean. A 13MP camera is found over at the back which is capable of recording video in 1080p. A 2MP camera is located at the front for video conferencing.

Internal specs also include 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built in storage which can be further expanded with a microSD card. The handset is particularly thin and measures just 6.9mm.

ZTE U950: For $160 you can own a quad core semi-flagship smartphone

ZTE has just announced an Android 4.0 powered smartphone called the U950. It’s got a quad core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor under the hood, 1 GB of RAM, a 5 megapixel camera, and a 4.3 inch display that pushes 800 x 480 pixels. In other words, it’s an above average device.

Will the U950 ever be sold outside of China? That hasn’t been confirmed yet. All we know is that it’s going on sale in China on November 11th.
