2013: the year of the giant phone. It’s a trend that’s been kicked off by the success of the Galaxy Note range (arguably preceded by the failure of the Dell streak), and looks set to dominate next week’s CES 2013 exhibition. ZTE are the latest company rumoured to be putting out an oversized handset next week, with UnwiredView getting hold of leaked shots of the ZTE P945 via the Evleaks Twitter feed.
A 5.7-inch Android handset running at 720p resolution, it should be great for streaming video and playing games on, even if its pixel density is stretched a bit thin over a screen that big when compared to Apple’s Retina display.
Spilling the phone’s guts, the leak also revealed a 1.2GHz quad-core processor in the device, as well as an 8MP camera and solid sounding 3000mAh battery.
Brandishing a China Mobile logo on the device’s back in the shot above, the handset is expected to launch in China ahead of other territories sometime before the summer.
The ZTE P945 is expected to debut alongside the ZTE Grand S at CES 2013 next week, with the Grand S itself expected to be an international variant of the Nubia Z5, which has already been revealed.
