ZTE confirms the Grand S II coming with Moto X-like voice commands
Last week, ZTE teased us a bit with news of the Grand S II, and today we're getting more information on the device. The ZTE press release for the device mentions (limited) Moto X-like voice commands, but doesn't mention any specs. A report from Engadget has specs on the handset, and ZTE has confirmed that the specs are accurate, though you'll see that they are a bit incomplete.
As we had heard before, the Grand S II will feature some specific touchless voice commands, but it doesn't look to be anything as extensive as the Moto X that hooks into Google Now. Still, the commands look like they should be pretty useful. There is the voice unlock phrase "Hello, Grand S", integration with ZTE's My Drive mode for in the car, and the ability to take a picture by saying "Cheese", which should make selfies easier.
The press release doesn't mention specs, but Engadget is saying that the Grand S II will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 (which allows for the voice commands), a 13MP rear camera, a 2MP front camera, 16GB of storage, and an impressive 3000mAh battery. The device will also be running Android 4.3. There is no word on the amount of RAM to be found in the handset (though we'd say 2GB is a fair guess), no word on other bells and whistles like Wi-Fi specs or NFC capabilities, and no word on a release schedule for the Grand S II.
