Don't blink or you'll miss it: LeTV One Pro sells out in one second

Don't blink or you'll miss it: LeTV One Pro sells out in one second
A flash sale conducted by LeTV on Monday set a record as the LeTV One Pro was sold out in one second. Each unit was priced at the equivalent of $403 USD. The LeTV One sold out in 3 minutes and 46 seconds. Interest in the pair of LeTV handsets was extremely high as more than 10 million registered for the sale.

As we told you on Monday, reservations for the beastly LeTV Max start today and the 6.33-inch device will go on open sale beginning June 12th. While the initial price of the device is equivalent to $580 USD, that covers only a limited number of units. Apparently, the final pricing will be revealed at the beginning of next month. LeTV is willing to price its devices at cost because the company makes money from services that it sells to consumers who own LeTV phones. That is a strategy similar to the one used by Amazon when it first started selling the Kindle Fire tablets.

The LeTV One Pro features a 5.5-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. A 64-bit Snapdragon 810 SoC is aboard carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. The 13MP rear-facing camera comes with OIS and a dual-tone flash. A 4MP Ultrapixel camera is on front, ready to take selfies.

Made with a plastic back instead of metal (as the other two models are), the LeTV One offers a 5.5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. The octa-core 2.2GHz MediaTek MT6795 CPU powers the handset, which comes with 3GB of RAM inside along with 16GB of native storage. The 13MP rear camera is equipped with OIS and a dual-tone flash. A front-facing 5MP snapper handles selfies and video chats. The LeTV One is priced at the equivalent of $240.

While the LeTV One and LeTV One Pro are off to a good start, it should be interesting to see what the consumer demand is for the LeTV Max when it goes on sale next month.

I want to believe but something does not seem right. A sell out in three seconds? Either they did not make enough or they had a limited quantity and hyped it as a sell out. The device as listed is amazing but I can't believe that all of these Chinese upstart manufactures are selling millions of phones a sec. When the establish Chinese manufactures like Lenovo, Huwewe ( Know I spelled all of them wrong please pardon me for that) are reporting good but not these super numbers that Xoami and LeTv are leaves me wondering what is going on?

They probably do like Apple does and make like 10 phones and wait for people to start ordering before they actually produce or ship more, then they can say "oh look, we sold out and had billions of preorders".

WTH?10 million sold out in 3.46 minutes? It took 30 days for GS6 to sell that much. Could anyone explain it to me?

China, that's why. Pretty 'normal', Xiaomi for example has to deal with that as well. :P

No, 10 million signed up for the sale, but it looks like only 200k phones sold, both LeTV One and One Pro, I guess there was very few Pro version.

Well that makes sense and even if it is China with over a billion people I have to say the older generation ( those 70 and older which is about half of the population ) is not to incline towards tech. I maybe wrong but some how I think these numbers are either inflated to boost the image of these manufactures or the Government is also involved in some type of game. There is no way Apple inc can be the top dog there selling iPhones like theres no tomorrow and these upstarts also selling on par. Somethings got to give.

Emmm...1 second? I think the process of clicking buy and pay takes about 3 secs at least. Like the payment webpage probably takes more than 1 sec to load...and 10 million people did this process in one sec? I don't believe it until other reports come out rather than itself saying it.
