Up until last year only geeks in India were familiar with the name Xiaomi (and how it is pronounced) and perhaps its Arch Nemesis, LeTv, stands at the same juncture today. The company has already shown its explicit interest in India and with increased activity on Indian shores in last couple of weeks, LeTvs arrival in India is all but officially confirmed.
LeTv? Doesn’t ring a bell
LeTv is a very popular brand in China, primarily known for online media content creation and Televisions. Both LeTv and Xiaomi have different operating principles, but due to overlapping interests the two have been involved in no holds barred skirmishes involving law suits and company heads showering diatribes at each other.
LeTv Le 1s Launched
LeTv has today launched the successor of Le 1, the Le 1S which flaunts a 7.5 mm slim ‘All Metal’ design with glittering set of hardware underneath.
Well, there is a 5.5 Inch Full HD display, MediaTek’s premium Helio X10 (MT6795T) processor, 3GB LPDDR3 RAM, quality 32GB eMMC 5.0 storage and Andorid 5.1 Lollipop based EUI 5.5 on board all for a budget price of $173.
The EUI 5.5 system for Le 1s introduce multi-desktops, a feature that simultaneously displays content and reduces the need for flipping between apps, across TV/movies, sports, games, shopping and more.
The 13MP rear camera include Phase detection AF, F2.0 aperture, LED flash and can record 4K videos at 30fps. The selfie snapper includes 5MP Samsung S5K5E2 sensor with 85-degree wide-angle lens on top.
