The ZTE Grand S will be officially unveiled during CES. In fact, ZTE has already confirmed that they will be announcing the handset on January 8. That bit we do know, however up until this point, most of the details have been nothing more than rumor. Granted, those rumors do make the handset seem interesting, however we can only put so much hope into rumors.

That said, it looks like ZTE has recently confirmed a few details about the Grand S. What we have seen thus far is coming by of of Chinese press reports. The details include the Grand S as having a thickness of just 6.9mm along with a 5-inch (1920 x 1080) HD display and a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera.

Other still rumored specs include a quad-core 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S4 (APQ8064) processor along with 2GB of RAM and a 2500 mAh battery. On these specs, nothing all that surprising on the processor and the RAM, however the battery seems a bit small. Well, small as compared to the Nubia Z5 which was recently announced with a 3000 mAh battery.

The one other bit that we are curious to see announced deals with the exterior of the device. Previous rumors have suggested the Grand S will be made of ceramic. The price has yet to be confirmed, however reports are suggesting that it will arrive at 2,799 yuan (about $450 or €340). Judging from the few details that have been confirmed and the ones that are still rumored and it looks like ZTE could have a decent offering. Time will tell how well received it will be though.

    6.9mm=.27″…. that’s ridiculously thin. Not to mention if it’s carrying a 2500mah battery which is only surpassed by the Note, Note 2, Ascend D Quad XL, razr maxx(hd) and Razr HD. I really don’t believe it. That is significantly thinner than all of those devices. I want it to be true, but I don’t think it will be.

    More cheap Chinese junk.

    Give me US, German, Korean, French, Swiss, etc.

    I’ll pass on Chinese junk that seem to have good specs, but overall quality is dirt.

    Timely OS updates and vanilla Android could easily make ZTE a contender with a price like that.
