ZTE’s Grand S II May Offer a Whopping 4GB of RAM

ZTE unveiled its flashy new flagship, the Grand S II, earlier this year at CES in Las Vegas, but it looks like the company may have kept at least one key detail under wraps. A recent filing with China’s TENAA (essentially the Chinese equivalent of the FCC) reveals that at least one version of the upcoming device could sport 4GB of RAM.

You heard that right, 4GB of RAM, just in case the already arguably unnecessary 3GB of RAM we’re seeing on some smartphones isn’t enough for you. ZTE apparently plans to max out the amount of memory it can fit on the Grand S II, though it’s unclear if there’s any reason behind this position besides a desire to be the first to do it. Most likely, this 4GB model will be a premium version of the device aimed at customers willing to spend extra for the best specs.

The Grand S II also comes equipped with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 800 processor (or possibly the 801), a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 3,000mAh battery, and runs Android 4.3 with ZTE’s added software on top. It features a sleek plastic back designed to look like brushed metal and customizable voice recognition software. There’s still no word on pricing or availability for the device however, and no guarantee it will ever launch in the U.S. or anywhere outside of China.
