ZTE will be making the trip from China to Las Vegas next week to show off a handful of new devices at CES 2014 with the hope of establishing itself as more than just another smartphone-maker. The company announced today that it will use the week-long trade show to unveil a new flagship handset, a phablet, a smartwatch and a mobile hotspot with built-in projector.
“ZTE has been developing a portfolio of fantastic consumer electronics on top of the smartphones for which we’ve become well known,” said ZTE’s mobile chief Zeng Xuezhong.
The company’s first wearable device, called BlueWatch, will feature a built-in pedometer, and other fitness tools, and will connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth so you can access social media, photos, calls and other content from your wrist. ZTE will also unveil a Projector Hotspot, designed for giving presentations on the go, and an AT&T Wireless Home Base that provides service for a home phone at just $20 a month.
Of course, we’ll also see some new smartphones from ZTE. The company’s new flagship smartphone, the Grand S II, will offer voice control technology. The Chinese electronics-maker will also unveil the nubia 5S with top-notch specs including a 5-inch 1080p display, a quad-core Qualcomm processor, a 13-megapixel camera and 4k video capture, and a 4.7-inch nubia 5S mini. Finally, ZTE will show off its Iconic Phablet, which can display two apps at once on its 5.7-inch screen and packs a dual-core processor.
