ZTE announces its “CES range”: Grand S II, Nubia 5S and 5S Mini, Sonata 4G, Projector Hotspot and BlueWatch

ZTE announces its CES range

ZTE won’t be all about smartphones during this year’s CES in Las Vegas. The Chinese giant announced a series of different products, some of which are opening new doors for the company. Let’s go through each one of them, shall we.

ZTE Nubia 5S and 5S Mini

These two were already announced in China and now ZTE is bringing them to the West. Both phones are rock solid though unfortunately they lack LTE connectivity support, the fact that can be a deal-breaker for some. You can read what these two are all about from a separate post here.

ZTE Sonata 4G

This affordable device is launching in partnership with Aio Wireless. The Sonata 4G comes with Qualcomm’s 1.2Ghz dual-core Snapdragon 400 chip, 4-inch screen, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel camera on the back and a 1780mAh battery.

ZTE Grand S II

The company’s flagship smartphone now comes with “cutting edge voice control technology” that enables voice recognition unlocking and voice-to-phone photography. In addition, the Grand S II also offers a host of high-precision audio features, including triple-MIC noise reduction for more natural and clearer voice calls. Plus it can simultaneously display two applications on its 5.7-inch full HD screen, which is the feature we’ve previously seen in some Samsung and LG smartphones.

Projector Hotspot

Imagine a mini projector and Wi-Fi hotspot all-in-one. This device is apparently great for streaming and “sharing visual content” whether you’re in the office, at home or in the classroom. The Projector Hotspot can also provide 4G access for up to eight clients simultaneously.

ZTE BlueWatch

The company’s first smart watch comes with built-in pedometer, and “records and analyzes data around the clock.” The watch enables on-wrist control of calls, content, photography, and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

Last, but not the least, ZTE said it is working with AT&T to develop the AT&T Wireless Home Base device, which would allow users to connect their home telephone to the AT&T wireless network, and enjoy unlimited local and long distance calling for $20 per month.
