ZTE had a lot to show at this year’s events, CES and WMC. At CES the company presented the Grand S phone with 5-inch Full HD display and month after, at WMC, it showed the Grand Memo, a 5.7-inch phablet. The second one aroused a lot of excitement when ZTE announced that the phone will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Later on it turned out that the ZTE Grand Memo will be powered by Snapdragon S4 Pro and only some variants of the phone will eventually be powered by the 800. Anyway, both smartphones were launched today in China and are expected to hit European markets as soon as next month.
