But at the company’s fan meetup, it had announced the LeTV Le Max will be the first smartphone to officially enter the Indian market. The device was first announced in July this year at a press event held in Beijing, China.
It sports all metal body along with almost bezel-less display and flagship specifications. The Le Max features a huge 6.33-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) resolution display.

It will be available in 32/64/128GB storage variants with MicroSD card slot.
On the camera part, it has a 20.7MP rear camera with Sony’s IMX230 sensor and includes Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), f/2.0 aperture and a dual tone LED flash. The 4MP front-facing camera with 81 degrees wide-angle lens can capture some good selfies. This dual SIM device runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with LeTV’s custom eUI overlaid.
It is backed by a 3,400mAh non-removable battery that can last for a minimum of single day usage.It offers 4G LTE that supports both FDD-LTE and TDD-LTE which can be used in India.
