Meet the world's first phone with a Snapdragon 820 chipset

Just a few years ago, we might have scoffed at the idea of buying a smartphone from a Chinese OEM.

That's exactly the opening China's LeTV is trying to capitalize on with its new Le Max Pro. Not only is the world's first phone to run Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 chipset, it's also the company's first attempt to break into the absolutely insane US market.
