Letv, a global leader in smart device technology announced the launch of two SuperPhones to be held on January 20, according to a Facebook post. The next generation smartphones — unlikely to launch in India — will be the first to run on Snapdragon 820 processor from Qualcomm. The Le Max Pro smartphone seen at CES 2016 is the first in the lineup.
“Letv has already established itself as one of the world’s top innovators and our decision to include the Snapdragon 820 processor in these new devices demonstrates our commitment to creating and delivering the best technology available to our customers,” said Jun Liang, chief operating officer at Letv.
“Once the marketplace sees the dramatic performance enhancements in our smartphones, we are confident they will not accept anything less.”
The Le Max Pro boasts a robust set of features, including Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology, the mobile industry’s first comprehensive ultrasonic-based fingerprint biometric solution, providing a more secure, reliable alternative to capacitive-based fingerprint sensors.
Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology now includes a new live-ness detection feature, helping to ensure that an actual finger is being used for biometric authentication, and making the solution even more difficult to spoof. The Le Max Pro is the first commercial device with Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology and will be the first with the new live-ness detection capability as well.
The Le Max Pro also features Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 for up to 75% faster charging than conventional methods.
Additionally, Letv will be the first to roll out commercial devices integrating 802.11ad multi-band wireless connectivity for multi-gigabit speeds and nearly uncompressed content transfer.
“We are very pleased that Letv is first to bring compelling and advanced smartphones to consumers that are powered by the Snapdragon 820 processor and feature Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology,” said Alex Katouzian, senior vice president, product management, Qualcomm.
With an ability to move content between devices in near real-time, and with an uncompressed signal, QTI’s technologies in Letv’s ecosystem of products maximize the user-experience, as well as the display quality on beautifully designed mobile and television devices.
The Le Max Pro is the latest addition to Letv’s Le Superphone family, which sold more than one million units last November.
