Rumors on the follow-up to the original LeTV Max have finally been uncovered, and it seems like one of the dissapointments of the original have been answered in the 2nd gen model. Early rumors on the specs of the LeTV Max 2 suggest the display will be significanty smaller than the 6.3” original. One of the biggest complaints of the 1st gen model was the display was too big making it difficult for users to operate with one hand.
The LeTV Max 2 specs suggest it will still be considered a Phablet sporting a 5.7” display, Qualcomm’s 820 SoC, and Quick Charge 3.0. Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 is an upgrade over the current 2.0, and will allow users to give their phones a charge from 0%-80% in about 35 minutes.
Quick Charge 3.0 will become available for smartphones around the same time as Qualcomm’s 820 SoC which is expected to be ready for smartphone mass production early next year. The new processor is said to be significantly faster, more efficient, and be free from an overheating issues seen in the Qualcomm 810 SoC.
The LeTV Max 2 was spotted running through AnTuTu and received some impressive scores. The LeTV 1s was also spotted running through benchmark tests and some of the specs have been leaked. The 1s will be a mid-range handset featuring a 5.5” display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920, MediaTek Helio X10 processor, 3GG RAM, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, and 32GB of onboard memory.
