Chinese Internet conglomerate Letv said on Saturday it would soon launch a series of world’s first smartphones powered by the Snapdragon 820 processor from Qualcomm.

The company’s Le Max Pro, unveiled at CES 2016, is the first smartphone to pack the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor that offers better user-experience as well as the display quality than other processors.

“Letv has already established itself as one of the world’s top innovators and our decision to include the Snapdragon 820 processor in these new devices demonstrates our commitment to creating and delivering the best technology available to our customers,” Jun Liang, chief operating officer at Letv said.

The Le Max Pro also includes Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology – the mobile industry’s first comprehensive ultrasonic-based fingerprint biometric solution, providing a more secure, reliable alternative to capacitive-based fingerprint sensors. The Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology now has a liveness detection feature that ensures an actual finger is being used for biometric authentication.

The Le Max Pro also features Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 for up to 75 percent faster charging than conventional methods.

“We are very pleased that Letv is first to bring compelling and advanced smartphones to consumers that are powered by the Snapdragon 820 processor and feature Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology,” Alex Katouzian, senior vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies said.

Additionally, Letv will be the first to roll out commercial devices integrating 802.1 1ad multi-band wireless connectivity with up to 4.6 Gbps speeds and nearly uncompressed content transfer.

“The collaboration between Qualcomm Technologies and Letv underscores the importance of 802.1 1ad solutions in allowing users to interact with Wi-Fi like never before, including moving content onto and off of devices in seconds, and unwiring virtual reality (VR) glasses,” Katouzian added.
