Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor is the next big thing from the high-profile chip vendor who specializes in producing System on Chips for mobile devices from the low-end all the way up to the high-end. The Snapdragon 820 will be Qualcomm’s replacement to the Snapdragon 810, and is slated to hit smartphones this year. It was thought that the highly anticipated Galaxy S7 from Samsung would be the first device top pick it up, but according to Qualcomm from their announcement earlier this morning, the Le Max Pro from Letv will be the first device powered by the next-gen processor from the California chip maker.
Although Letv’s official announcement has yet to hit the public, they are at CES this week showing off the Le Max Pro and along with it some of the specifications which consumers can expect to see with the device when it launches. Recent images of the Le Max Pro make it fairly obvious that the device will come sporting a big screen, but the exact details were unclear before. Now that CES is underway and the phone is on display at the event, the specs are out in the open and they reveal some interesting hardware.
The Le Max Pro comes equipped with a rather large 6.33-inch screen with 2K resolution and a pixel density of 464 pixels per inch, and the device is powered by a 3,400mAh battery. As for additional specs, the Le Max Pro also sports a fingerprint sensor on the back right under the 21MP rear-facing camera, as well as multiple options for storage sizes. Once launched, consumers will have the ability to pick up the Le Max Pro with 32GB, 64GB, or 128GB of internal storage. The Le Max Pro will also support USB Type-C and come running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow which means it’ll be on the latest version of the Android software. These specs suggest that the phone is no slouch, although the full list of specifications has not yet been revealed, nor have Letv listed an exact release date or information on how much the phone will cost. Right now there is no official confirmation the Le Max Pro will launch inside of the U.S., but that shouldn’t stop consumers from being able to get their hands on one.
