LeTV Max Pro Calls Dibs On Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Chip
LeTV today announced the Max Pro, the first smartphone to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. In addition to Qualcomm's flagship chip, the Max Pro takes advantage of 802.11ad 60 GHz WiFi from Qualcomm and Qualcomm's ultrasonic fingerprint technology. The ultrasonic sensor, placed on the rear, can read prints through sweat and lotion, which should reduce the number of misreads. The Max Pro features an aluminum and glass design, with a 6.3-inch WQHD display. It includes a 21-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and a 4-megapixel front camera. It has 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage. The device offers Dolby Atmos for sound processing, and has VoLTE / HD Voice. The handset uses a USB Type C connector. LeTV said it expects to release the Max Pro in the U.S. later this year.
