ZTE Grand S Flex 5-inch Phablet
The ZTE Grand S Flex, a successor of the Grand S, brings a few features which the Chinese maker can be proud of. First, there is the modest, yet elegant design with “clean and simple lines” that many believe are the trademark of a premium device.
The handset’s stylish looks were appreciated by experts and it was awarded an iF Design Award in 2013. The phone will not break any records in terms of thinness, but at 0.35-inch (8.9 mm) you can certainly call it slim. The ZTE Grand S Flex is not a regular sized phone and actually it is a phablet with a 5-inch IPS TFT display offering a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels.
The phone is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8930 processor which is assisted by 1 GB of RAM. There is 16 GB of storage for your content, however, the device lacks a slot for memory expansion. In addition to the 8-megapixel main camera, the Grand S Flex is also equipped with a 1-megapixel front-facing snapper.
The handset is LTE-capable and offers GPS naviagation, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity and Bluetooth 4.0. Power is provided by a 2,300 mAh battery. The Grand S Flex will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
