Letv Le Max Pro price revealed

Letv Le Max Pro price revealed
Officially unveiled this week as the world's first smartphone to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 processor, the Letv Le Max Pro is expected to be released in the US in the first half of the year (thus before the end of June). Before arriving in the US, the handset will be available in China, and we now know how much it's going to cost there.

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.

I'm in the US and I'd pay that. I'm looking at this and the Xiaomi mi5.

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.

First, alik is obviously trolling. Second, look for HTC One M7.

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.

"HTC is another highly unoriginal brand" while I would agree HTC is highly unoriginal now because of the A9, I completely disagree that they were unoriginal in the past.

Wasn't the M7 out before the iphone 5?? Unoriginal?? You are talkign absolute s**te,

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.

@ AlikMalix: Don't embarrass yourself by commenting like this.

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.

34. AlikMalix unregistered

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.

The minute they go above 5.5 inch, the price goes up by 200$. Annoying...

Not always true. But big screen size is a key selling point in Asia tho!

I can't imagine it will do any appreciable business if they go with a $600 price point.

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.

Might Not End Well But At Least It's Not $800.

Would have been better capped at $500. After all, they are trying to break into a new market and their selling point will only be a selling point for a few weeks before others like Samsung catch up.

That's Basically The Main Reason People Buy iPhones.

I think showing off phones is still happening in Asia or 3rd world countries. In Western countries or developed countries, not so much because it's not hard to buy high end phones.

So Huawei Mate 8 will hold the crown for the most fastest phone for first half of 2016.
