The Le Max Pro is a big phone. Like hard-for-a-lot-of-people-to-hold-in-one-hand big. The newly announced handset's got a sizable 6.3-inch display at its center and a solid metal build. If you're taking pictures with the thing, you're definitely going to need that second hand.
What's really remarkable, however, is just how premium the phone is. In its native China, LeTV is primarily know as an online video company. It's hasn't really been doing the whole phone thing for very long, and yet it's building a handset with specs capable of competing with some of the most premium flagships out there.
And that goes beyond just what what feels like an extremely solid glass and metal build quality. The company has pulled off some impressive feats here. For one, there's the aforementioned display, which clocks in at lovely 2,560 x 1,440 resolution — perfect, no doubt, for tuning into the LeTV programming, which, of course, comes preloaded on the device.
Even more impressive is the coup the company pulled, becoming the first handset to use Qualcomm's zippy new Snapdragon 820 processor, which is helped along by 4 GB of RAM. Speaking of speed, it's also got 802.11ad Wi-Fi on-board, making 4K streaming a very real possibility on the device.
The phone's also got USB Type-C on board, an incredibly zippy fingerprint reader, 64 GB of storage, and an impressive 21-megapixel camera on the rear. As others have noted, the design of the device isn't breaking any ground, but it's a lovely embrace of some current trends in smartphone manufacturing, including an extremely small bezel around the sides of the screen.
As for the bad news, we don't have any word on pricing or availability, including when, or rather, if the handset is ultimately destined for our shores.
