LeEco is, at this point, a relatively well-known China-based company, even outside of Asia. This company used to be called Letv, but they’ve decided to re-brand earlier this year, shortly after the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. That being said, LeEco released their first handsets in April last year, and has introduced five smartphones thus far. The company’s latest handset is the LeEco Le Max Pro, the first Snapdragon 820-powered handset. That being said, LeEco is preparing to launch some additional products (well, at least one) on April 20th, the press event has been scheduled, and we’ve seen quite a few leaks and rumors thus far.
This Chinese company will almost certainly going to introduce the Le 2, Le 2 Pro and Le Max 2 handsets, not necessarily all three though, but we’ll see. LeEco has already teased the Ultrasonic Fingerprint scanner feature for one of their upcoming models, and the Le Max 2 surfaced on AnTuTu a couple of days ago. Well, following the Le Max 2, the LeEco Le 2 has also popped up on a benchmarking site, the GFXBench. If you take a look at the image down below, you’ll see that GFXBench shares LeEco Le 2’s specs. According to the listing, the device will feature a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. Interestingly enough, the Helio X25 (MT6797T) 64-bit deca-core processor is also listed here, which is weird considering Meizu confirmed that they’ll have exclusive rights to that SoC for a period of time, and their PRO 6 flagship hasn’t been announced just yet. If we had to guess, we’d say that the Le 2 will be fueled by the Helio X20, not Helio X25, but who knows. Anyhow, the listing says that the Le 2 will sport a 16-megapixel rear-facing, and 8-megapixel front-facing camera, while Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come pre-installed on this smartphone.
There you have it, these specs might not be 100% accurate, especially when it comes to the SoC, but they’re almost certainly quite accurate. Either way, we’ll know more on April 20th, and will quite probably see quite a few more leaks by then, so stay tuned.
UPDATE: AnTuTu listing popped up as well (moments before publishing), and it reports almost identical specifications as the GFXBench listing, with one key difference, the SoC. AnTuTu says that the LeEco Le 2 will be fueled by the Snapdragon 652 64-bit octa-core SoC, which is possible, but that means that the Le 2 is definitely going to be classified as a mid-range device. The Snapdragon 652 is Qualcomm’s mid-range processor, while the Helio X25 is MediaTek’s flagship SoC. Either way, considering the fact that Meizu will have exclusive rights to the Helio X25, the Snapdragon variant seems like a more probable outcome, but we’ll see.
