ZTE Grand S II LTE sells 50,000 units in less than a minute
The ZTE Grand S II LTE is equipped with a 5 inch screen featuring resolution of 1080 x 1920. ZTE was not monkeying around when they designed the handset, as the manufacturer chose to protect the display using Gorilla Glass 3. A quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 is under the hood, and the device has 2GB of RAM inside along with 16GB of native storage. The 13MP rear-facing camera employs a Sony sensor, and a 2MP front-facing camera graces the front of the phone. Android 4.3 is installed on the unit out of the box, with an update to Android 4.4 expected shortly.
Consumers in China are getting annoyed with manufacturers like Xiaomi that offer limited quantities of handset models, which then quickly sell out online. The WCDMA version of the Xiaomi Hongmi for China Unicom, sold out of 100,000 units in 5 minutes. Xiaomi's success with this so-called "Hunger Marketing" has led other companies, like ZTE, to try it too. In a country like China, where 400 million units are expected to be sold this year, selling 50,000 of a particular model is bound to create heavy demand for it, resulting in these abnormally fast sell outs.
