ZTE Grand S joins the 1080p phablet gang
ZTE debuts ‘’the world's thinnest’’ 5-inch screen phablet at CES 2013 in Vegas, and it's a grand one.

ZTE Grand S revealed

Announced at a special press event at the Las Vegas Convention Centre, the ZTE Grand S is company's latest and greatest flagship Android smartphone. While its waistline is unbelievably slim at only 6.9 mm, the Grand S wields a spacious 5-inch 1080p display, making the handset only smaller to the Samsung Galaxy Note II.

Under its polycarbonate shell, the ZTE Grand S packs the kind of specs you'd come to expect from a high-end device, including a 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and 2 GB of RAM, that together should ensure a blazing fast performance in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. The Grand S is also equipped with a modem that supports LTE network download speeds of up 100 Mbps, providing the user with a premier online gaming and movie-streaming experience. On the back of the device is a 13 Mpix snapper with face recognition, anti-shake and panoramic-mode features, while a front-facing 2 Mpix camera caters for self-photography and video calls.

Considering the thin profile of the Grand S, it's impressive that ZTE also found enough space to include an external microSD card slot, giving users the ability to expand the 16 GB of built-in storage memory. The manufacturer hasn't shared any details yet regarding the Grand S availability in Europe, but the flagship is expected to land in China during the first quarter of this year.

The phablets, it seems, are here to stay. Given the high-end specs and slim design, would you consider a phone with a 5-inch screen?
