LeTV has become the first OEM to feature the newest flagship processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 820, in its phone, the Le Max Pro.
The phone sports a 6.33-inch, QHD 2560 x 1440 pixels display, and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EUI.
The Le Max Pro has 4GB of RAM, an Adreno 530 GPU, 64GB of internal storage and supports up to 128GB of expandable memory.
The Le Max Pro features a 21 megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization, and a 4-ultrapixel front camera. It is backed by a massive 3400 mAh battery which supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0. The device supports Wi-Fi 802.11ad technology, which supports upto 7 Gbps of high speed downloads. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth, and a USB Type-C port.
The phone features a fingerprint sensor, which makes use of Snapdragon Sense ID. It uses an ultrasonic-based fingerprint biometric solution for a more secure sensor and a new liveness detection feature, which detects that an actual finger is used to unlock the phone, and prevents fingerprint-spoofing.
The phone was launched at the CES 2016 show in Las Vegas, but there is no word on the pricing or availability of the phone just yet.
LeTV surely has delivered a blow to Xiaomi, which was rumoured to be trying to be the first manufacturer to pack in the Snapdragon 820 in a phone, with the Mi 5. Sadly though, the plan to do so, which actually had the Chinese OEM push back a flagship release for an entire year, has been to no avail. Nevertheless, the Xiaomi Mi 5 launch is imminent, with the company’s VP officially confirming on Twitter yesterday,that the device will be powered by a Snapdragon 820, and that it is out of the production line.
