Gone are the days when the ultra budget category was all about cutting corners and ugly boxes of plastic. Now a days you get pretty respective specs and design for same price. The Category that was once craved by Xiaomi seems to have found a new king. Enter the new LeTv Le 1S a 7.5 mm thin device with a very premium feel made to give you maximum performance and experience for your money.
LeTV Le 1S sports a 5.5 inch 1080 x 1920 Full HD display with negligible bezels. Under the hood is a 2.2GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor and 3GB of RAM. This deadly combination blows away any competition in performance in this range.
The 13 MP rear shooter is equipped with a LED Flash and 5 MP front camera is provided for your selfie needs. All in all a decent camera package for the price point. If a year ago someone would have told me that a device worth Rs.10,000 would have a fingerprint scanner, I would have ridiculed him. But here’s LeTv providing a fingerprint scanner just below the camera, an arrangement we all have now been well accustomed to.However the speed and accuracy of this scanner is yet to be tested.
All this is powered by a 3000 mAh user non removable battery. Though SD slot is found missing in this device the 32GB internal storage will make sure you have enough space for media consumption. The usual connectivity bundle i.e. Bluetooth, WIFI, GPS & DUAL SIM 4G is provided. NFC connectivity seems to be missing. The touch captive buttons at the bottom are back-lit.
The LeTv Le 1s was launched at just Rs.10,999/- which is a steal for such kind of specs. The phone will be available on Flipkart since 2nd of Feb and you can Register Here.
