It appears LeEco is not done for the year as a new phone has been spotted online getting its 3C certification. The phone with model number LEX850 sports a 5.7” 2K display, a Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.34GHz, and has dual 13MP rear cameras. There is 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage on board and a 3900mAh battery to supply power.
Looking at the screen size and the 2K resolution, I won’t be surprised if this is an upgraded version of the Le Max 2 as that is the only phone from LeEco with a 5.7” 2K display.
There is also a GeekBench listing of the LeEco LEX850 dated 14th of October showing the phone sporting 6GB of RAM, Android 6.0, and a MSM8996 processor clocked at 2.19GHz. Does it mean there will be a Snapdragon 820 version of this phone? We can not confirm yet.
The certificate from the ministry of information also shows another device with model number LEX950 which is expected to be a more powerful variant of the LEX850.

Sources say LeEco has scheduled the launch of their other dual camera/AI phone, the LeEco Dual 3 which sports a custom Helio X27 chip for later this month. There is a possibility that this new device may be released on the same day. The LEX850 will be available in coffee gray, gold, and two other colours when it launches.
