Qualcomm at its recent CES keynote address confirmed the Chinese brand LeTV’s Le Max Pro will be the first handset to sport the Snapdragon 820 processor.
The smartphone however was not officially revealed at the event and was announced to be on sale in the first half of 2016. Now, a Chinese mobile site has claimed purported pricing of the Le Max Pro. According to Mobile-Dad, the Le Max Pro will be priced at CNY 3,500 (roughly Rs. 35,500).
We got a chance to play with the Le Max Pro at CES 2016, and some of the specifications we gleaned include a 6.33-inch display with a QHD (1440×2560 pixels) resolution, and 4GB of RAM. It is backed by a 3400mAh battery. It will be available 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB storage variants. The handset sports a 21-megapixel rear camera and comes with optical image stabilisation (OIS). The dual-SIM Le Max Pro supports 4G LTE connectivity option and comes with USB Type-C port. The smartphone is running Android 6.0 Marshmallow with a customised UI from LeTV on top. The Snapdragon 820 SoC was found to be clocked at 2.2GHz, which means LeTV has not under-clocked the processor from the reference clock speed.
Qualcomm during the CES keynote had also revealed that the Le Max Pro will support Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology that can charge the phone from 0 to 60 percent charge in 30 minutes.The Chinese company hasn’t officially launched the Le Max Pro and we will have to wait for the unveiling. Unfortunately, the smartphone is still not listed on the company’s official store, thelemall.com. Apart from the Snapdragon 820, the Le Max Pro will also pack features such as Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Sense ID ultrasonic fingerprint technology that’s claimed to be more secure than capacitive sensors.
At CES, China-based LeTV also unveiled Super 4 Max65 Blade claiming it to be the “world’s thinnest TV 65-inch TV.”
