It was only a matter of time before ZTE came out with another device that would use the same design language as its much anticipated Grand S, so we weren't at all surprised when this Android 4.1.2 sister device popped up on the Chinese regulatory database. Like the aforementioned flagship, this upcoming V987 also sports a 5-inch gapless display, except it is capped at a 720p resolution. Naturally, the rest of the phone is built with a smaller budget in mind: the 13-megapixel camera is sized down to eight megapixels, and the original 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro is replaced by an unknown 1.2GHz quad-core chip (hopefully the MediaTek MT6589). That said, there's dual-SIM support (WCDMA plus GSM) and a removable 2,500mAh battery -- much bigger than the Grand S' built-in 1,780mAh cell -- here, so it'll be interesting to see how well the V987 will outsell the Grand S.
