As expected, ZTE today launched the Grand S II smartphone on the sidelines of CES 2014. While the phone was very much on expected lines, ZTE has managed to surprise us all with a unique feature. Almost every smartphone worth its salt out there can do voice recognition for commands, the Grand S II can recognize its owners’ voices.

Yup, that apostrophe is not misplaced. ZTE says that the phone can recognize known voices of its owners (those already saved on the phone) and can differentiate between them. Users can unlock the phone by speaking to it and also click selfies by a voice command. Though we don’t yet know the extent of the multi-user features, it would be really cool if different users can have different homescreens, wallpapers and apps, which appear only when they unlock the phone with their voice.
