The AnTuTu 133K score record-breaker LeTV LeMax Pro to be announced in the US

Well, that was months ago and we still haven't seen a LeTV smartphone released in the States, but this may change soon. Invitations about an unveiling event have been sent out and it is widely believed that the company will be announcing the LeTV Max – the Snapdragon 820-toting smartphone that allegedly scored 133,357 points on AnTuTu.
Whether this means that the smartphone will be sold in the US or not, one can only speculate. There's also the question with the alleged Snapdragon 820 exclusivity. As a reminder – a recent rumor claimed that Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 would be exclusively reserved for use by Samsung well until Apri, 2016. This only makes sense, as Sammy helped in designing the chip.
We could be seeing a case of LeTV racing to announce a phone that it won't be releasing any time soon, just for the sake of stirring the pot a bit. A good example of this type of strategy is Huawei and its Mate S with Force Touch announcement. The pressure-sensitive variant of the Mate S was announced a couple of weeks before Apple unveiled the iPhone 6s. But the Force Touch-enabled Mate S has not yet launched.
Back to the LeMax Pro, its rumored hardware is a 5.5” display with a 2560 x 1440 resolution, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage, a 21 MP main camera and a 4 MP selfie snapper. The phone will, of course, run on Android 6 Marshmallow. Sounds like a pretty standard, top-shelf smartphone for 2016. Now, will it be sold in the US, and what price-tag should we expect to see? Those are questions we'd love to see answered soon.
SN820 is actually looking quite impressive, 2016 should be a good year for Android.

after updating to antutu 6, my phone score jump from 36000 to 52000. I think with antutu 7 same phone will score above 500000. So in reality antutu score is increasing, while performance remain the same.

Because they have again changed the structure of this benchmark. Check this: http://www.xiaomitoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Top_An
The same devices scores less on 5.6 version compared to version 6. It's actually a worthless benchmark.

No, SD820 doesn't just seem to; SD820 actually is great! (I don't like calling nice stuffs "beast" though).

Lets just pretend 2015 didn't happen, fresh start. I bet that's what Qualcomm are saying as well.

I don't care if the engine is 500 HP. If the transmission is crap, the engine means nothing. So..great hardware, poor software. Look at all the Chinese phones with these massive battery's. Like the Mate 7. Poor battery life, optimization.
