Price leaked for the Snapdragon 820 powered Le Max Pro

by: Robert TriggsJanuary 8, 2016


LeTV’s Le Max Pro was recently announced as the world’s first handset sporting Qualcomm’s new high-end Snapdragon 820 processor. However, as there hasn’t been an official launch event for the smartphone yet, we haven’t been given any official information about how much the smartphone will cost, only that it will go on sale sometime in the first half of 2016.

A report from Chinese website Mobile-Dad claims that the Le Max Pro will cost CNY 3,500, which works out to roughly $530 or Rs. 35,500. This would certainly put the smartphone at the upper end of smartphone price brackets, but given the hardware this is really not an unreasonable price tag.

Along with a Snapdragon 820 processor, the Le Max Pro will feature a 6.33-inch display with a QHD (2560×1440) resolution, 4GB of RAM and storage options in either 32GB, 64GB or 128GB configurations. There is also a 21 megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization, a USB Type-C port, Quick Charge 2.0 support, 4G LTE connectivity, a Qualcomm Sense ID fingerprint scanner, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board. So there’s plenty of hardware for your cash.

Although we have hardware details for LeTV’s Le Max Pro, we are still waiting on an official word about the price and whether or not the smartphone will make an appearance outside of china.

    I guess where it is the qualcoom quickcharge 3.0 that was already announced

  • Dis

    It now only needs AMOLED :D

    • Raul

      It could use but not necessarily should in my opinion, I have a LeTV device and I can say the color reproduction and overall quality is on par with upper-end devices.

  • Marty

    Sounds like a sweet device. Hope it has AMOLED…or at a minimum an iPhone-quality LCD.

    • balcobomber25

      Apple sources their LCD’s from LG and Sharp/JDI, they supply LCD’s to most of the top brands who don’t use AMOLED’s from Samsung.

      • Marty

        LG also produces OLED displays. In fact, LG has had past litigation with Samsung over OLED tech.

        • balcobomber25

          There are a number of suppliers that make AMOLED displays but Samsung is currently the biggest in the mobile sector.

    Strange it has only QuickCharge 2.0. I thought it was developed in collaboration with Qualcomm to showcase all its latest technologies (820, ultrasonic fingerprint reader), it would have made sense for it to be also among the first phones to have QC 3.0.

    • Marc Perrusquia

      It could be enabled via OTA like the One A9.

  • Arman

    Sounds like an interesting device..

    “Quick Charge 2.0 support”

    Are you sure it’s 2.0? Because SD820 chip supposed to feature Quick Charge 3.0!

  • Paul M

    The max might be a worthy successor for my Xperia Z ultra

    • Marc Perrusquia

      My thoughts exactly. I hope this thing actually comes to the states.

  • Say What??

    The question is what US LTE Bands will this have? Also, why such a small battery for a large device? I was expecting something around 4,000-4,800mah. I’d take a Snapdragon 808 powered Le Max Pro if it had a 5000mah battery over a small battery any day of the week. If the 6″ Mate 8 can pack in a 4,000mah battery, surely the Le Max Pro could have done better. I’m a little disappointed.
