However, that is not all. the Letv 1s also is a device which comes with some notable additional features like a Type-C USB charge port, as well as a unique fingerprint unlocking feature. The Letv 1s comes powered by a 3,000 mAh battery and the device comes running on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box, with the company's EUI 5.5 skin over the top.
