by Habeeb Onawole 2

We reported last week that LeEco is said to be launching a revised version of the LeEco Le 2 called the LeEco Le 2S with launch date set for September 9. Yesterday, we also reported renders of the upcoming phone featuring super thin bezels. Today we have more news about the device.

Le 2S GFXBench

A LeEco phone said to be the Le 2S with model number X720 was spotted on GFXBench with some interesting specifications. The phone has a 5.5” Full HD  screen, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage, and a Snapdragon 820 processor clocked at 2.3GHz. While we are not surprised about the screen size, the other specs invalidated the rumors of it coming with 8GB of RAM (or 6GB), 64GB of ROM, and the newer Snapdragon 821 chip.

Other details revealed include an 8MP front camera (should be great for Google’s Duo), a 16MP rear camera (can’t tell if it’ll be dual) that can shoot 4K videos, a fingerprint scanner, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, NFC, and USB Type-C. The Le 2S will also have Quick Charge 3.0 support. The specs also show that it has only one SIM card slot.

This phone won’t have a 3.5mm audio jack, if you want a phone that has that, you should check out their Cool1 phone launched yesterday, it has a 4GB RAM version that comes with 32GB or 64GB of built-in storage, but you’ll have to settle for the slower Snapdragon 652 SoC.

LeEco LeX720 CCC

The LeEco X720 has also been certified by the CCC (China Compulsory Certification), so we hope the September 9 date holds. If you remember the X720 model was also spotted on AnTuTu back in June with Snapdragon 821. You can read more about it from here.
