It looks like LeTV is ready to launch the next generation of its 1S (X600) budget smartphone and the new device might be called the LeTV 2 if the poster the company released today is any indication.

The poster also has the word “Apple” on it with the “LE” highlighted in red as well as a large “2”. It looks like the company is again taking hits at Apple which the company has done in the past.

The specifications of the LeTV 2 or the X500 was previously leaked online via an AnTuTu Benchmark database listing. According to the listing, the X500 will feature a 5.5-inch full HD 1080p display, a MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795) clocked at 2.0GHz, a PowerVR Rogue G6200 graphics chip, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage.

It’s also rumored that the X500 will also feature a fingerprint sensor. Lastly, the AnTuTu Benchmark listing shows that the X500 scored a 45,000 which is a pretty good score.

If the LeTV 2 (X500) is priced similarly to the 1S (X600) then it will be a very impressive budget smartphone. We’ll just have to wait for the official launch on October 27.
