LAS VEGAS: ZTE today announced its latest flagship Android smartphone, the long-rumoured ZTE Grand S. 

Proving the firm is eyeing up the likes of Samsung and Apple, the ZTE Grand S is one of the first smartphones to boast a 5in 1920x1080p HD display.

Even more impressively, the phone measures in at a tiny 6.5mm thick, competing with the likes of the similarly-sized Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Despite this streamlined casing, ZTE has still managed to squeeze in a powerful 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB RAM and Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean mobile operating system, which comes with ZTE's custom user interface. 

Touted as the Chinese firm's most powerful smartphone to date, the Grand S has also been equipped with a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 2,500mAh battery.

There's support for LTE connectivity too, and ZTE told V3 that it will support EE's 4G network in the UK. 

The ZTE Grand S will be available in a number of different colours too, including black, white and red, although the handset's UK availability and pricing is still to be confirmed at this stage. 

Check back soon for our hands-on with the ZTE Grand S at CES 2013.
