LeTV Le Max confirmed for mid-January commercial debut in India
It’s no secret entertainment juggernaut LeTV got off to a flying start at the Chinese smartphone box-office earlier this year with the affordable Le One, high-end Le One Pro, and ultra-high-end Le Max, hitting it out of the park again in the low-cost flagship territory after the Le 1s refresh, and currently gearing up for a mind-blowing Max Pro release.
The second-gen phablet might put LeTV on the world Android map at CES 2016 in Las Vegas next week, but the OG could itself spread its wings outside the manufacturer’s homeland in January. Of course, it doesn’t make much sense to simultaneously launch the two in the same markets, instead the first-gen LeTV Le Max targeting a late yet still relatively timely Indian expansion.
Timely, because the original Le Max remains a beast by any standards, with such premium specifications in tow as 4GB RAM, 64 or 128GB internal storage, 6.33-inch Quad HD display, octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 3,400 mAh battery, fingerprint scanner, and 21MP rear-facing camera.
Weirdly enough, it appears LeTV plans to “preview” the Le Max for an Indian audience on January 5 in Delhi, right as the “Pro” spin-off will put the finishing touches to its glitzy US announcement. Unless the Le Max Pro isn’t ready for primetime after all, and CES attendees shall themselves be treated to the OG’s expansion efforts.
In any case, we know as much for sure: the LeTV Le Max goes on sale in India around mid-January, likely as a Flipkart exclusive, at a price fitting its gargantuan size and mouth-watering specs. Over $400, we presume, possibly even $500 or so.
