ZTE reveals CES plans with phones of all sizes, new smartwatch

Entering the wearable space with the 'BlueWatch'

Android Central @ CES

ZTE regularly has a strong presence at CES each year, and 2014 is looking to be no different. Announcing much of what it will have on display at the show, ZTE will refresh its smartphone lineup with the Grand S II, Nubia 5S, Nubia 5S Mini, Sonata 4G and Iconic Phablet (yes, phablet is in the official name).

That's a lot of phones to roll out all at once, and at least a few are looking quite interesting. The Grand S II and Nubia 5S will be iterations of the solid-selling originals, with new internals and designs. The Sonata 4G is a solid mid-range offering launching in conjunction with prepaid carrier Aio Wireless, and it'll be hard to miss the 5.7-inch Iconic Phablet as well.

Beyond phones, ZTE is planning to show a line of non-phone hardware, including hotspots, a smartwatch called the BlueWatch and smart home phone hardware called the Wireless Home Base. You can bet we'll be looking for all of the above products in our extensive CES coverage, which kicks off in just a few short days.
