ZTE Grand S to be thinner than expected and will include a 13MP camera
Just a few weeks before CES 2013 invades Sin City, Chinese manufacturer ZTE has something to tell you. It's ok, they want the world to know all about the ZTE Grand S, and why wouldn't they? Another member of the 5 inch 1080p club (led by founding member, the HTC DROID DNA/HTC Butterfly), the ZTE Grand S is even thinner than earlier thought. A picture of the device led many to expect it to measure 7.6mm thick, but a slide of the phone shown during its launch event in China, shows it to be just 6.9mm thin which makes it slimmer than the HTC DROID DNA and the recently announced ZTE Nubia Z5. The 5 inch touchscreen is said to be the thinnest of its genre at .55mm.

The specs for the ZTE Grand S just might have to wait for CES to be made official. Right now, the speculation centers on the usual innards found on 5 inch 1080p devices. That would be the quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor and 2GB of RAM. The 13MP rear-facing camera was confirmed by one of the slides during the event in China. Android 4.1 is said to be installed out of the box. The great news is that pricing for the phone might be atypical for your typical beastly handset. Speculation is rampant that ZTE is looking to price the Grand S for ¥2,799 which translates into $449 USD, off-contract. The slideshow reveals that the phone will be made available in a number of colors.

The introduction of the ZTE Grand S will certainly be one of those rare events that happens in Vegas, but won't stay there.
