Leagoo T5 - Flagship on a budget
Leagoo are a relatively unknown brand to the western audience but the Chinese company is making something of a name for itself with its recent forays into the extreme budget market. By budget, we're referring to the sub-$150 price range. The OEM are set to release their new flagship device, with a press release earlier in the day revealing some details.
Leagoo's new flagship, the T5, may not bring anything new to the market—that is to be expected after all, as their target audience are people trying to get as much value as possible on a budget—but it's impressive that they offer so much for that price tag. So much on paper, at least.
The T5 will sport a 5.5" FHD display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage memory, dual rear cameras (13MP+5MP Sony sensors), 13MP Samsung sensor at the front, front-mounted fingerprint reader, and a 3000mAh battery. It will be powered by a yet unnamed octa-core MediaTek processor—most likely a Helio P10 if we were to take a guess.
While much isn't to be expected from this device—it's not meant to be a world beater after all—it's laudable that the company is offering all of this with a price tag expected to be less than $200. That build isn't half bad, either.
