Le Max and Le 1S – Key Features & Hands-On Photos

A fortnight back, LeEco formerly known as LeTv officially started its operations in India by launching the Le Max and Le 1S. Le Max is a high-end premium smartphone priced at 32,999 INR whereas Le 1s is a mid-range phone packing some great specs and quality hardware at a competitive pricing of 10,999 INR. The company is aggressively advertising Le 1s as it’s a budget and ‘true value for money’ smartphone that’s highly demanding among Indians. Just yesterday, LeEco sold 70,000 units of Le 1s in 2 seconds in its first flash sale exclusively on Flipkart which is pretty amazing considering LeEco is a new brand just stepped in India. We got to try both these devices at the launch for a short while and are here to share their key features and hands-on pictures.

Though both the above phones pack a punch in their particular segment but we strongly feel that ‘Le 1s‘ will do exceptionally well in Indian market because of its killer specs and beautiful design followed by a sweet pricing. On the other hand, Le Max would have a hard time as it’s pretty costly and couple of devices boasting Snapdragon 820 chipset are round the corner. Let’s wait and watch!
