Chinese company LeTV has made quite a name for itself in China with its ‘Superphone’ series of smartphone. The company manages to offer some high-end premium Android smartphones with top-notch hardware at absolutely killer price. 

The company recently rebranded itself as LeEco, and today, it officially announced its entry into the Indian smartphone market by launching the Le Max and Le 1S in the country.

The Le Max is the flagship smartphone of the company and comes with metal unibody design that sports a gigantic 6.33-inch Quad HD display. The right and left edges of the display are surrounded by only 0.8mm thin bezels that help in making the smartphone more portable than its screen size actually suggests.
