ZTE has a lot to bring to CES this year, so much that they decided to reveal it a little early. The reveal includes five new smartphones, smartwatch, mini-projector and AT&T Wireless Home Base. The whole lineup looks a bit odd together, but ZTE is known for working in almost all technology hardware markets.
The Grand S II is the king of the show and will be the company’s flagship smartphone for CES. Since it is the most exciting device, ZTE decided to release almost no information in the reveal about it, other than the fact it has three microphones and new noise cancellation technology.
Fortunately, we have already heard quite a bit about the Grand S II, thanks to leaks. The phablet device should come with a 5.5-inch 1080p display and Snapdragon 800 processor, alongside 2GB of RAM and the latest version of Android KitKat 4.4.
Next in the line is the Nubia ZS5 and its smaller sibling the Nubia ZS5 Mini, the two are split by the screen size, the Nubia ZS5 has a 5-inch screen while the Nubia ZS5 Mini comes with a still large 4.7-inch screen, the Nubia ZS5 also comes with a 13MP Sony Exmor RS sensor.
On the large side of the smartphone world, ZTE has added the Iconic Phablet, a 5.7-inch 720p giant. The Iconic Phablet comes packed with a quad-core processor and ZTE has added the ability to run two apps side by side, similar to Samsung and LG’s Android interface.
The last is a little dull, simply because it will only be available on Aio Wireless, a rather unknown carrier in the US, owned by AT&T. The Sonata 4G will come with the Snapdragon 400 chipset, 1GB of RAM and a 5MP camera and as the name suggests, will have LTE capabilities.
Last, ZTE first smartwatch, named the BlueWatch. The smartwatch can connect to a smartphone through Bluetooth and display Facebook and Twitter updates and has the ability to control calls and camera photos.
