Chinese manufacturer LeEco has not released any product recently though the LeEco Le X7 was leaked last month. But the phone is not likely to be released as the screenshot revealed the date to be way back last year. This is assumed to be due to their financial issues. We know LeEco was developing another handset that sports an edge-to-edge display.
The smartphone is assumed to be the LEX659, i.e., the Le 2S which is in development. We last saw the LeEco Le 2s previously in January this year. The leak revealed the device has a 13-megapixel dual camera setup on the back and an 8-megapixel camera for video call and selfies. It also the specifications which were rumoured to be a 5.5-inch full HD display with 1080×1920 pixel resolution, a 2.3GHz Deca core MediaTek Helios X25 processor with 3GB – 4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of storage and a 3,900mAh battery.
Now after a long wait new leaked pictures of the LeEco Le 2s have surfaced online. The device has an almost edge-to-edge display, medium bezels on top and bottom and a metallic body. On the back side, there is a single sensor camera setup with LED flash along with the fingerprint sensor below it. The IR blaster is on top. The right side sports the volume and power keys. The device is not similar to the previous ones we have seen.
But there is a catch, the date of the lock screen displays ‘January 19’, so we are looking at an old prototype of the device. So we are not exactly sure if the device will be released in the market or not. The previous leak suggested the pricing of the device to be 1000 yuan which is approximately Rs 9,729. This will make the LeEco Le 2s one of the best-priced smartphones this year.
The company has been in serious financial troubles after the LeEco CEO Jia Yueting over expanded the company. They had issues with the organisation and also with their rate of growth, which was the result of expanding new territories with a limited amount of capital and resources. After that Jia Yueting, co-founder of LeEco resigned as the head of Leshi Internet Information and Technology Corporation. After that, the company has been trying to gain new revenue sources and rise despite its problems.
These new leaks may be a sign that LeEco has regained financial stability and is back on track again.
