Letv to launch a better iPhone 6 Plus


letv phone

LeTV have posted more teasers for their phone on Weibo telling that they plan to launch a better iPhone 6 Plus.

Anyone who has held the iPhone 6 Plus will be aware that it is a large phone for a 5.5-inch device when compared to Android phones. LeTV noticed too and have teased how they plan to improve the large screen iOS phone by launching their own smartphone.

Looking at the images it looks like LeTV have maintained the same size 5.5-inch panel, but greatly reduced the physical size of the phone with smaller bezels all round. The left and right side of display look especially narrow.

The images also show us how much smaller the 5.5-inch LeTV phone will be when compared to the iPhone 6 Plus. With a few simple sums we come to the dimensions of 140.3 x 73.4, the depth of the phone isn’t mentioned.

LeTV are believed to be releasing 3 phones, ranging from this 5.5-inch phone for 2000 Yuan to a larger screen phablet model. Processors will come from Qualcomm and Mediatek.

    Well, size does not always matter, I’m afraid. Many (iPhone- Samsung, Xiaomi-)clones from the past were eventually released with either a crappy building quality, a low-res screen, an outdated processor, insufficient memory and storage capacities or a poor camera. Or with any of the above given features combined.

    Seeing is believing.

    This and the Dakeie 3, (and to a certain extent the Serendipity S7) all look very promising. Unfortunately the Dakele 3 doesn’t have FDD LTE, the S7 is still very elusive, and LeTV are apparently going to run Ubuntu. Also, we hear rumours that they will be unveiled or launched on a certain day, and then we hear little or nothing for another month.

      The Dakele 3 is not only lacking FDD-LTE, it has also been vaporware for those who have a genuine interest, as even over two months after its official release, is is nowhere to be ordered or even available for pre-orders.

      I am dying to see the rumored JiaYu S4 (S3 in 5″ screen size package) confirmed.

        LeTV should be considerate about prices. not every brand ends up becoming a premium brand!

        Will Jiayu S4 ever be released? Rummors began together with S3 somwhere in October 2014, but while S3 is already selling, S4 is nowhere to be seen. Meanwhile Jiayu released F2, which could be it, if only it had newer SoC. So please Jiayu, if you are reading this, release S4!

          Anyone remember this? : https://a.disquscdn.com/uploads/mediaembed/images/1390/1199/original.jpg

          Too bad those specs are ‘shopped. Honestly though, those are the best specs for a phone sized phone. Neither too small, nor too big. Neither too overblown (medium resolution) nor too weak (powerful processor). Easy to price low (due to the … balanced hardware) yet beating every phone in existence in how comfortable it is to use. And 4.7” is not too small, even by today’s standards… (iphone is 4.7 and most flagships are 5)

            Very interesting, BUT still not 100% truth- the Sony IMX220 is a 16MP sensor.

    Very easy way to make a better iPhone 6 Plus. Buy a Mi Note, One Plus One or Mx4 Pro and slap an Apple sticker on it.

      Its a copy cat world. Apple is no different they copy what others are doing. Just look at the latest Iphone sizes. For years they told people that big phones were a fad and not needed, now they offer them in the same size as most Androids.

        Yeah I know.

        Still seems obsessive.
