ZTE Grand S II which was showcased last week in India is now available for purchase exclusively on Amazon.in. For a Snapdragon 800 powered phablet, the price seems very competitive at 13,999 INR.
In spite of the large 5.5 Inch Phablet sized display, the phone is quite light at 118 grams. The IPS LCD display has 1920 x 1080 (full HD) pixels spread across it. The Indian variant will be powered by 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 MSM8674-1 processor with Adreno 330 GPU.
The powerful chipset is assisted by 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. There is option for 32 GB MicroSD storage as well. The 13 MP rear camera at the back can record full HD videos. In our initial time with the device, the rear camera seemed to be a decent performer. The front 2 MP camera for selfies can also record 1080p full HD videos.
Battery capacity is 2500 mAh and ZTE claims 200 hours of standby time and 6 hours of talk time which sounds just about average. Other features include Dolby Digital Plus sound, dual screen multi tasking, 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.
“Our exclusive tie up with Amazon.in, one of India’s largest e-commerce businesses, will help us reach all our valued customers. We are optimistic about the Indian market and we are working on meeting the high expectations for the Indian consumers,” said Yuan Kang, CEO, Mobile Business, ZTE India.
After Xiaomi Mi3, this is the first smartphone to offer Snapdragon 800 at this price point. The software however is slightly dated. The phone is running on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with a custom ZTE UI on top.
