The battle of Chinese smartphones is going to get more intense in India, with the arrival of yet another manufacturer. China’s premium smartphone maker, LeTV is all set to enter the Indian smartphone market on January 5 with its “superphone” Le Max.
In accordance with a tweet by Flipkart’s Sandeep Karwa, the smartphone might be exclusive to Flipkart. The tweet reads, “LeTV coming to India next month! Stay tuned!”
The device comes with a fingerprint scanner on the rear, just below the camera lens. The company claims that the fingerprint scanner is not an ordinary one, it is a patented LeTouch technology that can unlock the smartphone within 0.15 seconds with an accuracy of 99.3 percent. It also allows users to store up to five fingerprints.
The Le Max features a metal build with a 6.33-inch 2K (1440×2560 pixels) display, pixel density of 464ppi and 0.8mm thin bezels. It is powered by Qualcomm’s 64-bit 2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 810 clubbed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB internal storage variants. In the imaging department, the smartphone sports 21-megapixel primary camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), dual-LED flash, and a 4-UltraPixel selfie camera. The device runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with LeTV’s custom EUI (almost identical to Apple’s iOS) on top.
LeTV is planning to customize its devices as per Indian users preferences. At a preview event, the company revealed that it might launch a few more smartphones along with the Le Max.
