Le Max Pro gets certified in China, Snapdragon 820 is coming

Chinese telecommunication authority TENAA has greenlit the LeTV Le Max Pro, officially the first smartphone to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset. With that hurdle cleared, the Le Max Pro is now one step closer to market launch.

LeTV’s latest and greatest comes with a 6.33-inch display with QHD resolution in a reasonably compact 167 x 83.4 x 8.95mm body. Weight is a manageable 201g, and while TENAA doesn’t disclose such specs, we’d expect battery capacity to be the same 3,400mAh as in the Le Max (non-Pro).

Chipset aside, the phablet is also equipped with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, at least in the version that was provided to the regulator. As earlier leaks revealed, the primary camera is a 21MP unit, while on the front there’s a 4MP shooter. Oddly enough, video recording is capped at 1080p.

The price of the Le Max Pro is expected to be around $535, but no specifics on availability have been revealed so far. That said, with regulatory approval granted, the smartphone should arrive sooner rather than later – after all it needs to beat the Samsung Galaxy S7(Snapdragon 820 in some versions, at least), now confirmed to debut on February 21.
