LeEco (Formerly Letv) Le 2 Rumored To Feature Helio X20 SoC

January 27, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Letv has recently re-branded to LeEco, and managed to surprise quite a few people. Before that happened, however, the company has introduced their Le Max Pro handset during CES in Las Vegas. This phablet is the first handset powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC, and even though it has been announced, it is still not available for purchase. That being said, LeEco has introduced 5 devices thus far, and it seems like the 6th one is one the way, read on.

Back in April, this company has rolled out their first three smartphones, the Le 1, Le 1 Pro and Le Max. All of these devices sported really compelling specs, but the Le Max was the highest-end one out of the bunch. Well, the Le Max Pro has been announced, and by the looks of it, Le 2 might be right around the corner as well. The newest rumor from China claims that the company is currently developing the Le 2 handset which will be powered by the Helio X20 64-bit deca-core processor. This will, allegedly, going to be the first LeEco-branded Helio X20-powered smartphone to reach the market, and even though this rumor doesn’t mention it, the Le 2 Pro might also ship with this processor. On the other hand, it is possible that LeEco plans to include the Snapdragon 820 in the Le 2 Pro, just like they did in the Le Max Pro. These are only our assumptions at the moment, but we’re sure that plenty more info will surface in the coming weeks, especially if LeEco intends to launch this handset sometime soon. If the company plans to stick to their release cycle, we might have to wait until April to see either of these devices.

As far as the Le 2 specs go, well, we don’t have any info at the moment, aside the fact that it might feature MediaTek’s Helio X20 processor. If we had to guess, though, we’d say that this handset will ship with 4GB of RAM, and quite probably a fullHD display. The 21-megapixel camera might be located on the back of this phone, and you can expect it to be made out of metal, at least partially. Either way, we’ll report back as soon as additional information surfaces, so stay tuned for that.
