Stand out or die – this law governs the modern smartphone market. Some brands, however, choose to take the short cut by simply copying what their more successful competitors have done. For example, the newly revived LeTv unexpectedly released another “cheap iPhone on Android”.
This is probably the first time you’ve heard of LeTv, but you may have come across some of its products in the past. A few years ago, the company quickly expanded and changed its name to LeEco. The brand began to conquer the US market and even planned to enter the automotive segment. But instead of becoming such a giant as Xiaomi, the company began to sink into debt and went bankrupt, becoming a victim of its own success and exorbitant aspirations.
LeTv returned again last year. In September, the LeTV S1 hit the market, the brand’s first smartphone with Huawei Mobile Services. Now the manufacturer’s range has been replenished with the Letv Y1 Pro model , which brazenly copies the iPhone 13 – the device is very similar to it, but at the same time it costs several times cheaper.
Letv Y1 Pro pretends to be an iPhone
The new smartphone not only has a similar camera on the back, but also a similar cutout in the screen that houses the selfie camera and speaker. At the same time, the side faces of the device are as flat as those of the iPhone.
As for the characteristics of this smartphone, it has a 6.5-inch IPS screen with HD + resolution of 1560 × 720 pixels, a Unisoc T310 processor (without a 5G modem), a 5 MP main camera and an 8 MP front camera, a hybrid card slot, a battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh (charging via Type-C), and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The whole thing runs on Android 11, measures 164.3×77.7×9.5mm and weighs 208 grams.
The price of Letv Y1 Pro in China starts from just 499 yuan, which is equivalent to ~75 dollars! This is how much you will have to pay for the version with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. There is also a 4/128 configuration and a top-end 4/256 GB variant that costs 899 yuan (~$135).
The manufacturer tried to get as close to the original as possible – even the amount of memory here is like that of Apple. So we can say that this is really a “cheap iPhone on Android”, in China they love this … “borrowing”.To Read Great Articles, Click Here Follow Us On Facebook Twitter Telegram
