LeEco, formerly known as LeTv has announced the successor of the Le Max smartphone which was released earlier in 2015. The announcement took place at the Mobile World Congress but the device was unveiled at the Consumer Electronic Show 2016 a month ago. Surprisingly, the price for Le Max Pro is lesser than its predecessor. It is priced approximately at INR 21,000 for the international market which is very less than the current retail price of Le Max, which is INR 32,999.

The reason behind such low pricing is that the Le Max Pro will be sold at $306.5 but only a limited number of handsets will be sold, which is around 1000. After selling out the first batch, it is possible that the handsets will be sold at higher prices. After announcing the smartphone, company has also state that the Le Max Pro will start shipping in the second half of 2016.
