Letv Le Max Pro price revealed
posted by Florin T. / Jan 07, 2016, 12:30 PM
According to a screenshot obtained by Chinese website Mobile-dad, the Le Max Pro will be sold for 3,500 CNY - that's about $530. In the US, the device will probably cost a bit more, but we assume the price won't be higher than $600 (of course, we might be wrong).
Running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Le Max Pro is made out of metal, and is quite a big handset, as it sports a 6.33-inch IPS display with 1440 x 2560 pixels. Thanks to its Snapdragon 820 processor that's paired with 4 GB of RAM, the Le Max Pro seems more than capable of providing a smooth user experience. The smartphone has a Qualcomm Sense ID fingerprint sensor on the back (next to a 21 MP camera), and offers 64 GB of internal memory. For a closer look at the new handset, check out our Letv Le Max Pro hands-on from CES 2016 (video included).
Since we don't know exactly when the Letv Le Max Pro will go on sale, it's unclear if this is going to be the first commercially available Snapdragon 820-based smartphone, or just the first that's announced to use this chipset.

That is too steep for a new player in western markets. $400-$450 would be wise approach. Even though it has latest of hardware it still has to prove it's worth the money. I would say 2-3 years of good buzz and off you go.

Why would they copy the antenna lines from iPhone 6?

iBoys always thinking Android phones copy the iPhone when in fact it's the other way around. Do everyone a favor and logout of your phonearena account immediately.

In this I agree with AlikMalix. Of course the plastic stripes are necessity for the signals to pass through but the design of them doesn't need to be identical to the ones of the iPhone (which ironically is also the ugliest part of the iPhone). There is a lot of copying the iPhone in the smartphone business and the reason is that companies rely on people's subconscious feeling that whatever looks similar to the iPhone could be also functionally similar. It happens very often in the industrial design business and in other products too. Apple didn't invent glass back, or plastic stripes, or 2.5D glass but it has popularised all these elements.

HTC One M7 doesn't have the same design of stripes as the iPhone 6. Also HTC One M7 was a shameless copy of the rear of the Sony Xperia P combined with the diamond cut chamfers of the iPhone 5. HTC is another highly unoriginal brand. They copied the iPhone 5 and the Xperia P to make the One M7, when they had bad sales with the One X and now the copy again the iPhone for the A9, because they have again problem with the sales of the One M9.

You really think apple was the first to have external antenna lines with iPhone 6? Look at htc one m7. And those antenna lines are not for style. They're necessary on a full metal device as metal acts as a faraday cage. That's why a full metal body with no gaps, plastic or visor is not possible.

Another blind iSheep. Antenna lines were invented by HTC (and used in the One series), after that they exchanged some patents with Apple and that's how iP6 got those lines as well. based on other LeTV models they're inspired by HTC, not Apple.

Stop with the hate: geez. I understand antenna lines and you can design them any way you please. But these are designed JUST LIKE THE phone I'm holding!!! There are antenna lines and then there are antenna lines just like the iPhone 6 (which I think are ugly... Very ugly). HTC has antenna lines - they don't look like these, iPhone 6 has antenna lines which look just like these. What's with the third degree - I just said what was obvious, that's all.

Compared to other phablets of the same size the price isn't bad and with those specs it's actually A bargain. Note 5, i6p, i6sp, lg v10, Z5p, They all cost more the only exception is the Nexus 6p which is about the same price so everyone should just quit their whining. LeTv Le Max Pro= A 2016 Phablet With The Best Specs That's Cheaper Than 2015 Phablets.

Yes, but those are all being sold by established brands with considerable notoriety in the market. They are an established commodity already. Letv is complete unknown. Trying to command a similar price to the already established brands isn't going to end well for them.
