CES 2014: ZTE Grand S II gets an official launch

Last year, we got hands-on with the flagship ZTE Grand S at CES. Looks like that phone has now run its course, with the ZTE Grand S II now taking the limelight.

It's an Android 4.3 device (at least it is right now, we'll have to see what it runs when the Grand S II hits the UK) and on the face of it, is a pretty strong device. But we'll only know for sure when we get hands-on for a proper review.

Those eye-catching hardware features include a 5.5-inch 1080p screen, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel networking camera on the front. 16GB of storage is also listed, as well as a pretty capable 3,000mAh battery.

But this also comes with some interesting voice recognition software too. That is said to recognise multiple users' voices, allowing family and friends to unlock your phone. Although why you would want to isn't something we can understand right now. Perhaps if you are busy doing something and you want your partner to answer a call? Whatever you use it for, it's there. Although you can probably limit it to just your voice too.

On top of that, voice recognition allows you take photos with spoken commands and with some My-drive mode tweaks, you'll find it offers quicker hands-free control whilst driving.

No news on launch details, expect those to trickle through in the coming weeks.
