Although not the news that we were expecting to see we do finally have confirmation that the LeTV LeMax Pro will be the first Snapdragon 820 phone on the market.

It’s finally official! Qualcomm took to the stage today at CES confirming that LeTV will be the first manufacture to launch a phone with their Snapdragon 820 chipset and that the LeTV LeMax Pro is the first phone that the new SoC will be found in.

The phone wasn’t officially launched today, but the confirmation from Qualcomm comes after months of speculation at which manufacturer would get the SD820 first. The main contenders were Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, Samsung and LeTV, but it is the new comer that has come out on top.

In addition to being the first Snapdragon 820 phone to be announced the LeTV Le Max Pro will also be the first phone to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon Sense ID technology for biometric security.

Expect LeTV to launch the Le Max Pro in China and the U.S later this year.

      On the contrary, was disappointed when the leaks said 5.5″, this is a serious contender to being my next phone if the rest of the hardware is right.

      I’d bet on 6.33″, the “old” Max is just that, not 5.5″. We need more phones with 6″ screens.

      I must disappoint you 😉 I’m working in a phone store for years and nobody here is waiting for 6,33 inches. And Beez276 then it’s nice for you 😀 This is by far the best 6.33.

    LeTV seriously want to bring their game on! Not only the 1st with the Snapdragon 820 but also invest 1B USD to build a manufacturing plant in the US for faraday future! Man, that is so impressive for a new comer!

    lol the irony at Qualcomm’s “Why Wait” trademarked slogan.

    Too bad Letv wasn’t able to get the Sense ID under the display… That would’ve been the game changer. Maybe Sense ID is still in too early stages… I’m hoping Xiaomi has delayed the Mi5 further to try and get the under display Sense ID working properly. If not, then I’m waiting until this years Nexus’ devices which hopefully by then have the under the display Sense ID. Or if Xiaomi announce the Mi Note 2 this year…

    We need more brands like this penetrating the west, and bringing us cheaper handsets to knock the kings of cost (e.g. Samsung/apple) off the top spot, and provide us fairly priced phones as an alternative to the stupidly over priced flagships of the now. Can’t wait for the antutu scores 😀
