Last weekend we speculated about whether the ZTE Grand S II would be the first smartphone to come with 4GB of RAM when the final version was officially unveiled this week.
Well to get straight to the point, the answer is no. The Grand S II has finally emerged in full over in China, and is kitted out with “just” 2GB of RAM – just like the rumours have suggested all along.
The Grand S II first surfaced all the way back in January at CES 2014, where we learned of its 5.5in full HD display, Snapdragon 800 processor and yes, 2GB of RAM.
So why the rumours of it coming with 4GB? Blame ZTE itself, as since giving us the heads up in January, it has tweaked a few things inside its new flagship, including switching the processor to the newer Snapdragon 801, running at an impressively speedy 2.3GHz.
Other features include 13MP/2MP cameras, 16GB of storage and dual SIM support.
However, if you really do have to have more RAM, ZTE has apparently put together an exclusive Grand S II variant that meets you half-way with 3GB of RAM and also has 32GB of storage and a leather cover.
Whether that version will ever make it out of China remains to be seen, but we certainly hope we'll see the regular version – despite its “meagre” helping of RAM. Why? Because it's been priced at CNY1699, which is a frankly ridiculous £165.
