LeEco Le Max Pro, which is the first smartphone powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, has gone on sale in China. LeEco, which was previously known as Letv, has priced the new Le Max Pro at approximately RMB 1,999 which comes to around Rs 21,000 when converted. It’s not clear when Le Max Pro will come to India.

The Le Max Pro runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow system topped with LeEco’s eUI. It also comes with an ultrasonic Sense ID fingerprint scanner, and 802.11ad connectivity.
Le Max Pro is similar to Le Max, which was launched in India early this year and is now on open sale. The new Le Mex Pro has the same bezel-less, full metal unibody design, and is made of air-craft grade aluminum.
