Letv have pulled off a feat by stating that its latest, the Le 1s is being sold at a loss (the production cost being $206- a difference of $33); Letv, the company that introduced the first USB Type-C phone, seemingly seeks to improve its position in the global smartphone space by making such a bold move.

The Le 1s has a 5.5-inch FHD screen with a Helio X10 2.2 GHz octa-core processor at its heart. 3GB of RAM and 32 GB of non-expandable storage is present on Le 1s as well, and a 3000 mAh battery, that supports quick charge, to back it all up.

USB Type-C is present on this iteration as well with an addition of a fingerprint scanner with a mirrored finish that, Letv says, unlocks the phone in 0.15 seconds– an impressive figure. An IR-blaster is included in the phone too with an accompanying remote control app to complement it. The Le 1s supports dual-SIMs that can simultaneously harness two 4G connections.

The cameras present here boast 13 MP on the rear and 5 MP in front; with the rear camera featuring Phase Detection Autofocus that helps the Le 1s lock on to focus in 0.09 seconds. Furthermore, the front and rear sensors have an aperture of f/2.0 and the front camera also flaunts an 85-degree wide-angle lens. Lastly, the phone is powered by a skinned build of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop called eUI.
