ZTE unveils the world's slimmest quad-core phone called the ZTE Grand Era V985. The handset's name may be a bit off but this is pegged to be the next flagship phone of the Chinese premium brand manufacturer.

Screen density is touted to have a stunning 326ppi, just like the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5. Out of the box, it'll be with Android 4.0 but will be upgraded to the buttery Jelly Bean OS.
“The Grand Series has many distinguishable features that set it apart from other smartphones in Philippine market. The handsets are high-quality yet price competitive which satisfy the demand for high-quality and affordable smartphones across the country, “said Mr. James Chen Yi.
