ZTE Grand S II could be the first smartphone to sport 4GB of RAM
Back in January, when the year seemed so new, Chinese manufacturer ZTE introduced the ZTE Grand S II. At the time, the handset seem well spec'd with a 5.5 inch display carrying 1080 x 1920 resolution, a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 SoC under the hood, and 2GB of RAM inside. Heck, the Grand S II even beat out the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on the AnTuTu Benchmark test, scoring a rather impressive 34,938 vs. the 34,652 tallied by Samsung's phablet.

The ZTE Grand S II recently received certification from TENNA, which is China's version of the FCC. The TENNA visit brought forth a number of pictures of the device, and spec sheets. Interestingly, all of the specs matched earlier reports, except for one noticeable difference. The sheets that were posted after the TENNA visit reveal that the ZTE handset is now sporting a whopping 4GB of RAM.

If it turns out that the Grand S II is indeed carrying 4GB of RAM, the model would be the first smartphone to do so. As a point of reference, the OG Apple iPhone carried 128MB of the stuff back in 2007, showing how far mobile technology has come since then. Last fall, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 became the first mobile phone to include 3GB of RAM on board.

The rest of the specs on the ZTE Grand S II include a 13MP rear-facing camera, and a 2MP front-facing shooter. Making sure that the lights stay on is the job of the 3000mAh battery, and Android 4.3 is installed out of the box. If the spec sheets are correct, we could see a little bit of history made when the ZTE Grand S II does get released later this year. 


Thanks for the tip!
