The LeEco Le 2S has been the subject of leaks and rumors for a fairly long time, but now it appears that the company might be preparing for the smartphone's eventual release, at least in China, where the Chinese regulatory body known as TENAA recently certified two variants of the LeEco Le 2S. They are known as the 'LEX656' and 'LEX659', with the latter promising dual-SIM capabilities.
Aside from the fact that the LeEco Le 2S 'LEX659' is equipped with an additional SIM card slot, there seems to be virtually no difference between the two aforementioned variants in terms of what makes them tick. They both make use of the same hardware components, including a 10-core processor, and while the exact CPU model is unspecified by TENAA, the unit is most likely a MediaTek Helio X25 System-on-Chip clocked at a frequency of up to 2.3 GHz per core. The CPU works alongside 4 GB of RAM and TENAA reveals that the device houses a total of 32 GB of on-board memory. Unfortunately, according to the listing it would appear that the smartphone does not have any options for expanding the on-board memory. Moving on, the LeEco Le 2S packs a 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, a dual 13-megapixel main camera coupled with an 8-megapixel front-facing sensor, and takes advantage of IR (infrared) and Bluetooth connectivity. All the internal components rely on a 3,900 mAh battery, and the device runs on the previous main version of Android, specifically Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which will likely be covered by the proprietary user interface 'EUI'. In overall, the LeEco Le 2S weighs 168 grams, it measures 152.4 x 75.1 x 7.5 millimeters, and TENAA mentions multiple color options; two of which have been exposed in live pictures (below). It's also worth noting that the LeEco Le 2S presents itself in a metal unibody design flaunting a rear-mounted fingerprint recognition sensor below the dual-camera setup.
At the moment there's no official word on when either one of the two LeEco Le 2S models certified by TENAA will hit the shelves. However, seeing how the smartphone now has TENAA's certificate under its belt, it's likely that the LeEco Le 2S is nearing its highly-anticipated debut, which could take place at Mobile World Congress at the earliest. For readers who may be wondering, TENAA is known as China's equivalent of the FCC, and any formalities set in place with the regulatory body usually hint at an approaching market release.
