The world’s first ever Snapdragon 820 phone, i.e., the LeEco Le Max Pro, is headed for its home country.
LeEco (formerly Letv) announced the phone at CES 2016 a few weeks back. Since then, the phone has gained massive popularity — more for the trivia (read: first SD820 phone) than anything else.
Nonetheles, the Le Max Pro is set to launch in China in the coming weeks. Testimony to that is evidence of the phone’s certification process through TENAA, the regulatory authority that has leaked scores of phones in the past.

I love the phone looks and specs but the price is a bit too much for me now. I’d love the phone to watch YouTube videos on it, with that big screen is perfect.
Screen is too big, anything above 6 inch is a tablet. Should have sticked to the 5.95′ form factor, and I`m still waiting to see if they got rid of those big bezels.
You could really notice the difference between 5.95 and 6 lol?
and 6.33, yup, especially on this device which is not top of the line crafting(screen to body ratio). When you use it every day, and you have to use it allot with one-hand you`ll see what I mean.
I thought I would notice a difference between the 5.5 inch MX5 which is my main phone and the 6 inch Blu Pure Xl which I am testing out for a month. It took less than a day for me to get used to it and I actually prefer the larger phone.
I had the same fear when moving from a 4.5 inch to a 5.5 but I prefer the bigger one and I would love a 6 inch one. I use all my phones with 2 hands anyway, that’s how I never managed to drop one in all these years.
I prefer the bigger size because content looks so much better on it.
I’d prefer a big screen phone for reading a book, browsing, youtube too instead of a tablet. It’s more convenient to have it in a compact format instead of a bulky tablet with 2cm bezels instead of 2mm.
I even had a few of my shirt pockets modified for my Redmi Note but I wouldn’t mind having them enlarged again for this beauty 🙂
I believe there’s a 128 GB version too
westerners usually go like: “OMG, that’s too big”, meanwhile asians: “great, so i can enjoy my content in more detail on a bigger screen”.
I’m not asian but I liked phablets since Samsung Galaxy Note 1, and everyone was ranting against me back then.
It looks like the west is also slowly adapting to bigger screens, and 5.5″ is now not only accepted but a minimum requirement for most here. It wasn’t 3 years ago tho’!
I wonder why in the west bigger devices get accepted slower than in Asia.
Great SOC but what most these units lack is a proper rom. I wished they all just would use Cyanogenmod straight off. Buying a phone with a terrible OS is like having a phone that only can use it’s hardware at max 70%.
