By 08:23 Mon, 16 Aug 2021 Comments


LeTV made the news at this year's CES where elegant Qualcomm announced LeTV would be the maker of the first phone with the high-discontinue Snapdragon 820 chipset.

The LeTV Le 1s is a mid-range smartphone from the Chinese company LeTV. The company has recently started operating internationally. The 1s is one of the two phones it's launching, the other being the flagship Le Max.

Both the phones have attractive price tags, but it's the 1s that takes the cake with premium design and features being packed into an extremely competitively priced package (sub$200). You will understand why, as soon as you see the main points on its spec sheet.

LeTV Le 1s at a glance

  • Dual SIM phone
  • Aluminum body with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, 7.5mm profile, 169g
  • 5.5-inch, 1920x1080 IPS LCD
  • 2.2Giga Hertz (GHz) 8-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor
  • 3GB RAM, 32GB storage (25GB available to the user)
  • Android 5.0
  • LTE, Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C
  • 13MP rear capturing camera with ISOCELL sensor, phase detect autofocus, EIS and 4K video recording, 8MP front camera
  • 3000mAh battery with Quick charging
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • IR Blaster for remote controlling appliances
  • Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C port, MHL 2.0

Yup, it almost looks to fine to be true. Indeed, we've seen other compelling budacquire propositions in this classy screen size category - the likes of the Meizu m1 metal ($249 for 32GB) or the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 ($235 for 32GB) - but none of them has 4K video recording. Also, both are more expensive than the Le 1s.

LeTV is an unusual name for a phone maker, but you have got to remember that they are originally a popular streaming video producer - something like the Netflix of China. They've already realized that the brand name may not be accepted warmly on Western markets so you can already find their products under derivative brands such as Le and LeEco.

Anyway, time to have a closer see at the LeTV Le 1s.
