ZTE launches Grand S II in India, goes on sale next week

ZTE Grand S II LTEChinese device maker ZTE on Tuesday unveiled its Grand S II smartphone in India. The smartphone is scheduled to go on sale on November 24 in the country, however the company has not revealed the pricing at this point, which will be shared closer to the release.

Originally introduced at CES 2014 in January this year, ZTE Grand II is a high-end smartphone and comes with a 5.5-inch full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, and 13MP rear camera. The phone runs on Android 4.2.2 and there is no word on whether ZTE plans to update it to Android 4.4 or 5.0. In addition, ZTE has included 5MP front shooter, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and microSD card slot in the Grand S II.

On the software front, ZTE has added voice-control technology on the phone, which will allow the consumers to unlock the phone, snap a photo, listen to messages or play music via voice commands.

Given the outdated OS in the phone and limited brand-recognition for the company in the country, ZTE will have to go really aggressive with the pricing if it wants the phone to succeed. To remind you, it is sold for 1699 yuan (around INR 16,400) in China.

In related news, ZTE has revealed it also plans to launch the Nubia N7 mini smartphone in the country in January next year.
