Chinese smartphone manufacturer LeTV has just announced three new “Superphones” that will eventually make their way to the United States. Dubbed the Le Max, Le 1 Pro and Le 1, these budget-friendly handsets are the first smartphones to features USB Type-C charging ports.
For starters, the Le Max (pictured above) is the company’s flagship device, toting an aluminum chassis, a 6.33-inch quad HD display, a 2GHz octa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of internal storage, a 21MP f/2.0 rear-facing camera with OIS and an UltraPixel front-facing camera. It also has a touch-based fingerprint scanner on the back, an IR blaster, a 3500mAh battery, WirelessHD display link and dual LTE SIM support.
Next up is the Le 1 Pro, which is basically just a smaller version of the Le Max. It has a 5.5-inch quad HD display, a 13MP rear-facing camera with OIS, 32 or 64GB of on-board storage and a 3000mAh battery. The only other changes between these two devices are the removal of the fingerprint scanner and WirelessHD display link.
Last but not least, we have the Le 1. The most affordable of the bunch, this device offers up a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 2.2GHz octa-core 64-bit MediaTek Helio X10 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16/32/64GB of on-board storage, 3000mAh battery, a 13MP rear-facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. The Le 1 is made of plastic, while the other two are made of aluminum.
If you thought the specifications were great, wait until you hear the price. The Le 1 starts at 1,499 yuan (~$240), the Le 1 Pro starts at just 2,499 yuan (~$400) and unfortunately there’s no pricing information available for the Le Max. LeTV hasn’t announced a release date for the phones quite yet, but we’ll be sure to update you once we hear anything.
