Like expected, LeTV announced the LeTV Max Pink & Gold Special Editions in an event today. The company had teased us earlier with a couple of pictures, along with the tagline, “will give you some more colors to see”. This along with a recent leak had kind of confirmed the launch today.
In addition to the special colors, both the editions will feature sapphire glass screen. Yes, the same sapphire glass which is often regarded as one of the toughest glass in the market right now. Instead of just a portion of the body (like camera glass), it will cover the entire display, protecting it from scratches and other abrasion. The glass also has excellent light transmission quality, which means you can expect a clear and vibrant display on the device.
The Pink Edition is particularly special because of the additional CNC machining, hundreds of color toning and a lot other processing to finally achieve the expected finish. That is why, the Pink version is slightly costlier than the gold version. While the LeTV Max Gold edition will retail for 5888 Yuan ($924), the Pink version will cost as much as 6188 Yuan, ($972). As you can see, these phones are costly even for the premium segment.
As for the specs, both the models will feature 6.33-inch display with 2K resolution. Under the hood, there will be Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64-bit chip with 4GB RAM and 128GB of storage. Up front, there’s a 4MP Ultrapixel camera while at the back, there’s a 21MP shooter. The phone comes with 3400mAh battery and runs on Android 5.0 with LeTV’s EUI on top. Along with these powerful specs, for the above price you get a lot of VIP feature like additional security features, TV subscriptions, VIP hotline, special luxury package and so on.
Like all special edition versions, the available units will be limited, only 10,000 units will be available for sale globally. The company is yet to announce a specific launch date for the device, but stay tuned for more details.
