LeTV expected to launch its first smartphone in India on January 5

While we already know that LeTV is planning to enter the Indian market, it now looks like that’s gonna happen in less than a couple of weeks. The Chinese company has sent out invites for a press event scheduled for January 5 in the country’s capital city of New Delhi.

While the invite contains little information other than the event’s date, time, and venue, reports say the company will take the opportunity to launch its first smartphone for the Indian market.

Speculations are that the LeTV Le 1s could be launched at the event. The device wasunveiled in China back in October and has been selling well there.

The handset is powered by a MediaTek Helio X10 SoC and sports a 5.5″ 1080p IPS LCD display. It also features mirror-surfaced fingerprint recognition, which the company claims offers 99% accuracy on first touch, and responds in just .09 seconds.

For those who aren’t in the know, aside from smartphones, LeTV also manufactures televisions, and is also into original productions and content aggregation.
