Now that we know all about the ZTE Grand S sped, design and function, we are now getting to the nitty-gritty of price, with sources in China claiming it could cost as high as 3998 Yuan.
When we first saw details and leaked photos of the ZTE Grand S, reports offered the 6.9mm thin, quad-core phone could go on sale for as low as 2700 Yuan ($434), but now after being officially unveiled those price estimates have risen considerably.
New information suggests the ZTE Grand S will go on sale later this month across China for the higher price of 3998 Yuan or roughly $642!
Although the high price isn’t all that unexpected now we know what the S is packing (5-inch 1080p display, 13-mega-pixel Sony Exmor camera sensor, quad-core Qualcomm CPU and 2GB RAM), it seems strange for ZTE to price the Grand S higher than their recently launched flagship Nubia phone.
ZTE’s Nubia brand was meant to be the companies chance distance itself from its budget phone persona here in China, however with the ZTE branded Grand S now costing more than the Nubia Z5, we can only wonder what ZTE are playing at!
