One other bit of news to catch up on, and potentially good news for anyone in the market for an Android phone that punches above its price tag. Last Friday Chinese OEM LeEco slipped up and published pretty much everything slated for its big U.S. announcement next Wednesday, October 19th. The pages have since been taken down, but the Internet doesn’t forget!
Here are the specs of the two unlocked smartphones headed our way:
5.5″ Full HD display
16MP rear camera
Snapdragon 652 processor
Quick Charge 3.0
5.7″ Quad HD display
21MP rear camera
Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor
4GB or 6GB of RAM
Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0
The bad news? Neither phone will have a headphone jack, but international versions of these devices have shipped with USB to audio adapters. The good news? Price. The larger Le Max2 will retail for $349 USD, with a sale price of $289 until December 18th. The Le S3 will sell for $299 USD, with an introductory sale price of $169. That might be a typo, though…
LeEco will also be unveiling some Android-powered TVs; you can read more about those at the links directly below.
