New ZTE Grand S Flex and Blade G to be released later this year
ZTE announced its 5 inch Grand S back in January as the world’s thinnest smartphone (only 6.9mm). One of its downsides is that it comes with a non-removable 1,780 mAh battery – which is certainly not what you’d expect from a quad-core, Full HD flagship device.
But ZTE wants to correct that mistake by releasing an upgraded Grand S model. The new handset is called ZTE Grand S Flex, and has a 2,300 mAh battery. This makes it a bit thicker than the Grand S, but it’s worth it.
Frandroid says the Grand S Flex will be available in France starting September. From the live photos showing it, it looks like there aren’t noticeable differences design between the Grand S Flex and the older Grand S.
Another upcoming ZTE smartphone that Frandroid got hold of is the Blade G. This is the successor to the popular Blade series, and features: a 4.5 inch display with 854 x 480 pixels, dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor, 512MB of RAM, and a 2,000 mAh battery. It’s going to be available in late summer.
Finally, Frandroid also says that the ZTE Grand x2 In – announced earlier this month as the company’s latest Intel-powered Android smartphone – will be released in France at the end of September. There’s no word on its price for now, but we’ll let you know when we find out more about that.
