Now here is a smartphone that should not be overlooked, as this particular flagship device, known as the LeTV 1 Pro, will sport a slew of hardware specifications that will impress – and it does so without having to burn a hole in the pocket. Forget about the far more established brands from China such as Xiaomi, Meizu, Oppo and Vivo, the LeTV 1 Pro looks set to be a bright star upon its release.
Sporting an octa-core 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor from Qualcomm with Adreno 430 graphics, it will also be accompanied by the likes of a near border-less 5.5” QHD display with a pixel density of 534ppi, 4GB RAM, a 13MP OIS camera, a choice of either 32GB or 64GB of internal memory, 4GB RAM, and a USB Type-C connector, running on a 3,000mAh battery with Android 5.0 Lollipop on board. The asking price? A highly affordable $400, now how about that?
Now how about this – having a wireless provider actually pay you money if you do not happen to use up your monthly cellular data? It sounds more like a place in an alternate universe, but pinch yourself and snap out of it. WiFi calling leader Republic Wireless are the ones to raise the proverbial bar this time around, where they are having a beta test of new plans which will actually repay consumers for their unused cellular data every single month, now how about that?
Bandwidth and Republic Wireless CEO, David Morken , shared, “One of the coolest things here at Republic is collaborating together with our Customers to solve the biggest industry pain points in Republic Labs. It helps us keep one step ahead. Customers told us they wanted control over how much cellular data they buy – with today’s announcement, we are delivering. Over eighty percent of our customers use less than a gigabyte of cellular data a month. It’s been estimated that current industry plans cause consumers to waste an average of $200 per year in unused cellular data. We think that’s ridiculous. So we’ve devised a way to pay customers back penny for penny for unused cellular data every month.”
