Letv Le 1s Preview Video: All you need to know:

Today Chinese Internet services giant Letv held an event in China where they released some great new products.

It comes with no surprise as the company introduced a successor to the Letv Le 1 – Le 1s.

The phone comes with a 5.5″ 1080P panel the same as the last-gen model.

As you may see from the design, we have a major change in terms of the materials used. The Le 1s is an all-metal phone that definitely adds a lot to the premium look and feel of it.

On the front we have a 5MP snapper, the same backlit capacitive keys on the bottom.

On the back we have a 13MP shooter, single LED flash and a fingerprint scanner, which is said to be super fast (it takes just 0.15 seconds to recognise your fingerprint).

On the right there is a volume rocker and the power button, which are also made of metal.

On the left there is a dual SIM card slot.

On the bottom part of the Letv Le 1s we have a speaker, mic and the USB type-C port.


The main specs of the Letv Le 1s include a MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795T), which is clocked at 2.2GHz, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage as a base model. The 3000mAh battery will keep the lights on.

Letv made a statement that the 13MP camera on the back of Le 1s is faster than the one found on the iPhone 6s as the embedded PDAF system is able to reach the capture speeds of 0.09 seconds.

Finally, the Letv Le 1s will cost just 1099 Yuan ($172) in China, which sounds like a great deal. Naturally, the reseller prices will be a bit higher for international buyers.

Besides the Le 1s, the company also announced other products, which include a smart TV, whcih carries a model the uMax120 model name. It is a 4K TV with the 3D technology and it is said to be the world’s largest 4K TV (although the screen size is not specified).Some notable features include 800nits of brightness output, 4000:1 contrast ratio, 120GHz refresh ratio.

Finally, the price of this “Super TV” will be…. 500.000 Yuan, which roughly translates to $78.000.

Last but not least, Letv announced the fast development of the LeUI’s ecosystem into car industry. The announcers were not very specific but they were pretty confident that the LeUI will be highly integrated in some high-end cars and one of them may be made by a respectable manufacturer Aston Martin.

We can’t get our hands on with the Letv Le 1s and, if possible, other products. In the mean time, please check out our reviews of the Letv Le 1, Le 1 Pro, Letv Le 1 vs Le 1 Pro comparison and Letv LeMe headphones.

  • Steven

    Any idea where it can be bought or when?

    • Giztop accept pre-order now, but this phone will be available at about Nov 3rd. Here is the link:

      • Steven

        Thanks a million!

        • no VAT/customs tax for EU countries 🙂 but the shipping may cost a little (but not too expensive)

          • Steven

            It says free though Linus? I dont understand you?

          • Yes, it’s free expedited shipping.

      • Steven

        Is there only one method of shipping available, the free one? Does this include the no customs tax etc to Germany?

      • Charlles Costa

        Shine Wong. I have seen some Antutu benchmarks for this phone and there is missing a lot of sensors like Gyro. Can you confirm if those are missing.

  • Tony

    Still no NFC?

    • no…

      • Tony

        With Letv clearly having ambitions in the western markets, they really need to do some catching up. With Android pay active in the US and (maybe soon elsewhere) NFC is becoming prominent. Its no longer just a quick way to connect to speakers! Wonder why they decided to put NFC in the X900 max, but not the others? Is it a cost issue, space issue? Its not even as if they have implemented hotknot – just nothing. ‘And for that reason, I’m oooot’ (dragons den quote for non UK readers 😉

    • Charlles Costa

      Why do you need NFC? I haven’t used for ages.

  • erictheking87

    Any info about audio hardware? DAC+amp??? Because LG with its V10 and samsung with S7 have (or going to have in samsung’s case) ESS technology DAC+amp combo which gives superior audio quality against all other smartphones (check head-fi forum reviews for LG V10 – it just slaughters everything else from mainstream manufacturers and is on par with mid-range dedicated DAPs)… and this makes buying chinese phones questionable… when we talk about audio quality.

    • Razor

      Umm! Why are you comparing Letv le 1s to $600+ dollar flagship phones? Considering this phone is only $250 dollar. The fact that this is a midrange phone with decent specs and even got dedicated hifi audio DAC is also a major bonus feature. Give me good example how many midrange phone has dedicated hifi audio DAC? I like microSD too but this phone has 32GB storage with 3GB ram so it won’t be that much of an issue.

  • Anton Le

    Will they eventually release 2 other models like the x800 and x900? With the X20 o 920?

  • Christo

    Has the 1S got Gorilla Glass? If so, is it Gorilla Glass 3 or 4?

  • Hiwyx

    Now the question is Meizu metal or Xiaomi Redmi note 2 pro or LeTv 1s? I like the very neat design of the LeTv but seriously prefer fingerprint sensor on the front like the Meizu (because I often check my phone without taking it off my desk…)

    • Charlles Costa

      I like the Meizu Metal too, but there is no USB type C charge/cable which is must. I won’t go back to a phone with the old USB type.

  • Mayank Mani

    waiting for it to come india. xiomi and meizu gets a tough competitor .

  • Charlles Costa

    Nice phone and good specs, but missing gyro sensor and a few other sensors. So I won’t order until I see some reviews.
