The company has given it the tagline, “first ecosystem smart phone” of China. The 21 MP rear facing camera is powered by Sony’s IMX230 image sensor. The Le Max Pro is capable of recording 4K videos through the rear camera, and the front camera is a 2-megapixel Ultrapixel camera, powered by an OmniVision OV4688 CMOS BSI sensor. It also features a USB Type C-reversible port based on USB 2.0 standard. As promised by the Qualcomm team, the mobile which comes with the 802.11ad (11ad) Wi-Fi and MU-MIMO technology, along with tri-band support, can process huge amount of data in real time. The peak data transfer rate of the 2x2 80 MHz 11ad is 4.6 Gbps. The phone will also run the latest Android Marshmallow.

Drawbacks of the smartphone include the conventional hardware process and absence of the 'Playstore'. The company has no plans as of now, of launching the mobile in the USA. There is however, little doubt that the Le Max Pro, featuring the latest and most desirable specifications is one worth owning.
