LeEco (short for Le Ecosystem) may be busy rolling out the Le Max Pro, the world’s first smartphone with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC, in China. However, a set of leaked images have begun doing the rounds on the Internet claiming to show the Le 2 – said to be the successor to the Le 1s.
First posted by Mydrivers, the leaked LeEco Le 2 smartphone images purportedly show the smartphone from every angle. One of the biggest changes seen on the handset is the new LeEco branding at the rear panel which replaces the Letv logo. To recall, the Chinese Internet conglomerate Letv had announced that it re-branded the company name to LeEco in a move to focus towards entering different global markets. The front of the Le 2 seems to be identical to the Le 1s smartphone. The alleged successor also picks design cues for the speaker grille placement. The right side of the Le 2 in the image shows the volume rocker and power button placed in the same position as the Le 1s (Review).
The rear panel is the place where the handset looks to have all the changes as there is no round fingerprint scanner – instead it’s now a square. As seen in the leaked images, the camera placement is again at the left top corner of the Le 2, similar to the Le 1s.
Some of the specifications details claimed by the Chinese publication include a Snapdragon 820 SoC or the MediaTek Helio X20 SoC under the hood. It will possibly pack massive 4GB of RAM compared to 3GB of RAM found on the Le 1s.
The fingerprint scanner has gained some improvements – claimed to be of “ultrasonic variety”, which is not detailed in the report. The handset is again said to sport a USB Type-C port. We can expect to hear more about the LeEco Le 2 smartphone in future.
Last month, LeEco announced that the Le 1s smartphone would be available without registrations in India.
