First Snapdragon 820 SoC powered phone, the LeTV Max Pro, to be announced tomorrow?

The highly-spec'd LeTV Max Pro will be unveiled tomorrow according to a teaser found on the company's verified Weibo account. What makes this unveiling so special, is that this handset will be the first unwrapped with the Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood. Qualcomm's latest and greatest chipset features a quad-core CPU that employs the company's own Kryo cores. The Snapdragon 820 also carries the Adreno 530 graphics processor. The teaser shows the phone's dialer app with the numbers 8-2-0 highlighted, confirming that the Snapdragon 820 will be powering the device that will be made official on Tuesday.

While the teaser doesn't mention the name of the phone, LeTV was the first manufacturer to reveal that it was working on a handset that would use the chipset. That was back in August. Since then, a GFXBench benchmark test showed that the LeTV Max Pro was powered by the Snapdragon 820. Speaking of benchmarks, the model reportedly scored an impressive 133,357 on AnTuTu.

The remaining specs include a 5.5-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. Not only is the Qualcomm Snapsragon 820 chipset driving the phone, the unit also will feature Qualcomm's ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. The latter does not need buttons, and can be embedded right into the screen.

A 21MP camera graces the back of the phone, and a 4MP Ultrapixel camera (yes, exactly like the one you're thinking about) is on front to handle selfies and video chats. A 3400mAh battery provides the power, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed.

Quite an impressive list of specs to be sure. And tomorrow, we should know the pricing and availability for this beast.

The competition in 2016 is going to be less in hardware (specs) and more in software (ui), optimisations and implementation.. For OEMs

I think the 820 will be Qualcomm's comeback in the mobile SoC game. Going with the new core setup was smart thinking on their part, better single core performance with good multicore performance. Can't wait to try it out in the Galaxy S7, that is if it has it.

I dunno why they wanted to go full Samsung and go 8 core BIG.little. although I find it nice on mid tier, high end they should stick to 4 cores. And to the ain't the first 820 until it comes to NA!

(the unit also will feature Qualcomm's ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. The latter does not need buttons, and can be embedded right into the screen.) Is it right what I'm thinking that a fingerprint sensor is pre-installed on the screen n the phone would be unlocked directly when you put ur fingers on, if that the case with the snapdragon 820 it would be awesome to see a major step in tech it's a bit futuristic I didn't think it would that close.
