Phones with big screens seem to be a big trend in mobile lately, with companies like Motorola, Samsung, LG, and more all launching handsets with screens that range in size from 5.5 to 5.9 inches. Well today a newcomer topped them by announcing a phone with a 6.33-inch screen.

LeTV has introduced its three new “superphones” that all run Android 5.0 beneath a customer user interface. The Le Max is the top-end member of the family, boasting a 6.33-inch Quad HD screen, Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 21-megapixel camera. The other two phones have some respectable features of their own, though, just in case a 6.33-inch screen is a bit too large for your liking. Here’s the quick spec rundown for all three:

Pricing for the Le 1 is going to start at 1499 yuan ($241 USD), while the Le 1 Pro will start at 2499 yuan ($402 USD). LeTV hasn’t revealed pricing for the top-end Le Max, apparently the company plans on working with its fans in China to determine a price for its top-end phone.

LeTV plans to release its new phones in China, but it’s worth noting that they’re going to be coming to the U.S. as well. So far LeTV has only said that they’ll arrive stateside sometime later in 2015, but hey, that’s better than having no U.S. release plans at all. And considering that LeTV has set up U.S. headquarters in Redwood City, Calif., along with an office in Los Angeles, these three phones may not be the last that we see of the company in the U.S.
