ZTE announces Grand S II with voice recognition, 5.5-inch Full HD display and Snapdragon 800

ZTE has officially unveiled its Grand S II smartphone at CES 2014, boasting a clever voice recognition feature that allows it to be unlocked by multiple users via speech only.

The voice recognition function will not only enable more than one person to be programmed to unlock your device such as your friends or family - perhaps not a welcome feature for everyone - but you will also be able to take snaps using voice command.

The Grand S II also comes with a My-drive mode, allowing the voice recognition to be used for quicker hands-free control while driving.

But that isn’t all the new ZTE flagship brings with it. You will find a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, Android 4.3 and 16GB of internal storage.

For smartphone snappers, there is a 13-megapixel rear camera along with a 2-megapixel front camera for video calling or those all important selfies, and you’ll get a 3000mAh capacity battery so you should be able to talk or video for a while.

There is no word on pricing or a release date just yet, but we expect these details to be announced soon.
