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.
