Recently we have heard a lot of rumors about the ZTE Grand S and Grand Memo’s pricing with some of the figures reaching unbelievable amounts. Luckily, recommended retail prices for mainland China have been confirmed and they correspond with what we would expect from such high-end handsets. As GizChina reveals, the ZTE Grand S will be available for 3,399 Yuan, which would be about $540 and the ZTE Grand Memo will cost 2,688 Yuan what is an equivalent of $428.
ZTE Grand S vs. Grand Memo – Overview
As you probably noticed, the bigger ZTE Grand Memo will actually be cheaper that its smaller brother – ZTE Grand S. This is caused by the fact that the Grand Memo’s 5.7-inch screen has only 720p resolution and the first variant released will be powered by older quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor clocked at 1.7 GHz. Later this year ZTE is planning to launch two more models of the Grand Memo packing Snapdragon 600 and Snapdragon 800 chips, and those will probably come with higher price tags. Beyond that, the phone offers 1 GB of RAM, 13 megapixel camera and 3,200 mAh battery and run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The more expensive ZTE Grand S which is just 0.27 inches (6.9 mm) thin and will rock a 5-inch display with amazing 1080p resolution. The handset will also feature a quad-core 1.7 GHz processor, 13 megapixel camera, 2 GB of RAM and, just like the Grand Memo, will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. If there is one thing we can complain about it is a measly 1,780 mAh battery. Given the phone’s specs it will definitely require additional charging during one day.
