Qualcomm’s snapdragon 820 chipset is 2016’s next-gen chip, and flagship devices like the Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 are expected to come running the processor, but Chinese OEM smartphone maker LeEco, formally LeTV has outpaced other popular mobile makers to become the first to come powered by the processor and be sold.
The Le Max Pro went on sale yesterday at about 12pm China time, and only a limited number of units were made available for purchase (just 1,000 units), on a first come, first serve basis.
Interesting things worth noting about the Le Max Pro are;
- The units that went up for grabs were not commercial models, but engineering models instead.
- The devices were available priced at just CNY 1,999 (around $305), meanwhile, earlier rumors had suggested the device will cost somewhere between CNY 3,500 and CNY 3,700 ($530-$570).
On the specs angle, the Le Max Pro sports a 6.33-inch QHD touchscreen, and comes with 4GB RAM, 21 MP rear camera, ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, a USB Type-C port, and 3,400 mAh battery. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Infinitely, you can most definitely say the buyers had a good deal for a pretty powerful device.
