ZTE revealed their newest flagship phone this morning, and the ZTE Grand S II is living up to the title. With a large, 5.5-inch display, the 1080p phablet packs in the best in Android CPUs – Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 800.
There’s also a 13MP rear-facing camera, and a 2MP front-facing one: the 2MP shooter impressed us last year, when most front-facing cameras still offered fuzzy looking images. It ships with 16GB of flash storage and a promising 3,000mAh battery.
The real draw to the new Grand S II, however, is ZTE’s expansive voice controls. Not unlike the recent Moto X, which lets you use voice controls on your phone without having to touch or otherwise interact with it, the Grand S II will take pictures with voice commands (great for getting family shots with the photographer in the picture for once) and let you unlock the phone with just a voice.
Interestingly, the Grand S II can recognize multiple voices, enabling users to add spouses and children to the whitelist, so any registered user will be able to take advantage of the functionality.
There’s no word yet on pricing or release date, but we’ll update the news when we find out.
