By - Source: CES | B 13 comments

Device will be officially unveiled on January 8.

Due to event information being posted on CES' press page, ZTE's high-end smartphone set to be revealed at the upcoming technology event has been confirmed as the Grand S.

The Chinese handset manufacturer recently said it'll announce a high-end smartphone during the trade show on January 8, but the specs outed by the page in question has confirmed that it'll be a 5-inch smartphone with a FHD screen.

The event summary added that the device will be made out of ceramic, sport a "traditional Chinese style," and is perfect for the "fashionable set."

Although ZTE is tight lipped about further details, a representative told CNET that the Grand S will be powered by a quad-core processor.

ZTE's global chief design director, Hagen Fendler, had said that the Consumer Electronics Show will mark a new "design era" for the firm through its upcoming smartphone.

    WOW, going to have to be more careful what I click on here. Toms just wasted 2min of my time. Multiply that 10x daily and I'm sick of these pointless posts that tell me nothing. Some guy said something would be announced in jan...blah blah.

    Tell me something I don't know. Something will be announced from now until eternity monthly. There, no need to tell us this again. If you don't have specs, or at least a picture (this isn't worthy to my eyes either), who cares?

    This is not "pottery" they are talking about. There are many types of modern ceramics that can be extremely durable.

    "traditional Chinese style,"
    So it's made as cheaply as possible?

    I've had a ZTE headset for a year now. I can clearly say that despite of it being a basic Android phone, it is by far better then any of the LG/Samsung/Sony Ericsson/ect. phones that are at the same price range.

    One of my family members has a Samsung Galaxy Gio, I have the ZTE Avail.
    Both phones have the same CPU and the same mGPU, the build quality on the ZTE is BY FAR better then that of the Samsung.

    Both cost the same, yet after playing around with both of the units, I clearly will say that this company is not YET another "Chinese" knock-off clone company.

    YES it is made in CHINA, but yet over 75% of the available electronic devices are produced in CHINA. So what's the difference? Is it the name of the BRAND that you look at first? Or the build quality of the headset?
