LeEco Le 2 smartphone spotted at TENAA
The Chinese media company LeEco (formerly LeTV) is relatively unknown outside of its home country, but is nonetheless a player in the crowded smartphone market. LeEco recently showed off its high-end Le Max Pro smartphone with the Snapdragon 820 SoC at this year's CES 2016.
Now, LeEco is purportedly readying more smartphone models for launch this year according to TENAA reports. The successor to the existing Le 1 series will be the new Le 2 family consisting of the Le 2, Le 2 Pro, and Le 2 Max. Leaked images and specifications for the Le 2 point to a 5.5-inch FHD display, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB eMMC, and dual SIM capabilities. Unfortunately, no MicroSD support is mentioned.
As for internal hardware, users can expect a deca-core Helio X20 SoC clocked at 2.3 GHz, a 3000 mAh battery, 16 MP and 8 MP rear and front cameras, respectively, and LTE connectivity. LeEco was one of the first manufacturers to ship smartphones with USB Type-C last year, so it is unsurprising to see this continue with the latest generation. Android 6.0 will be pre-installed alongside the LeUI interface.
Dimensions are listed as 151.1 x 74.1 x 7.7 mm with Gold, Silver, and Gray color options. The Le 2 may come to market at just under 1000 Yuan or the equivalent of 135 Euros. Current rumors suggest an official reveal this coming April 20th.
