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.
