LeEco is reportedly working on the successor of its budget smartphone Le 2. Leaks suggest the device is called Le 2s and will come with 8GB RAM on-board. According to Gizchina, Le 2s will run the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and feature 64GB internal memory. The site also posted pictures of what could be LeEco Le 2s, revealing 2.5D curved glass panel. Though there’s no word on the type of display Le 2s could feature; we can expect a QHD screen based on leaks. The smartphone looks quite similar to Le 2 in terms of design. Other reports reveal that Le 2s could launch as early as first week of September. According to GSM Arena, LeEco is planning to launch Le 2s on September 7 (the same date when Apple is speculated to unveil its new iPhone). The details however, need to be taken with a pinch of salt as the Chinese technology company has not made an official announcement for Le 2s yet.
If rumours are anything to be believed, then LeEco Le 2s will be the first ever smartphone to come with 8GB RAM. While we’ve seen devices like OnePlus 3, LeEco Le Max2, Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe and more with 6GB RAM on-board; one with 8GB RAM is yet to be launched. The 8GB RAM is said to be coupled with Snapdragon 821 processor, which sure makes a powerful combination. We’ll, however, have to wait and see if any of these rumours hold true for LeEco Le 2s.
LeEco unveiled its flagship Le Max2 and budget Le 2 in June in India. Le 2 is a successor of Le 1 launched in India in January. The smartphone is priced at Rs 11,999. It features a 5.5-inch LCD display with a pixel resolution of 1080x1920p. It is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. The rear camera is 16MP and the front camera is 8MP. In our review we said, Le 2 has the best camera among all the sub-Rs 12,000 smartphones. The camera on Le 2 is fast and snaps pictures with decent amount of detail. Le 2 comes with the same 3000mAh battery that easily lasts a day. It runs Android Marshmallow.
