A few months ago, a LeEco phone with dual cameras, a 1080p display, a 2.5GHz processor, 4GB RAM, and 32GB of storage was spotted on TENAA. Said to be the LeEco Le 2S Pro, the phone was expected to launch in September. We are already in January and the Le 2S Pro still hasn’t launched.
Then in October, another dual-camera LeEco phone with model number LEX850 was seen on the 3C website getting it’s certification. This one had a 5.7-inch 2k display, a Snapdragon 821 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and dual 13MP cameras. We thought it was going to be an upgraded version of the Le Max 2 and hoped it would launch soon, but like the Le 2S Pro above, the X850 is yet to arrive.
The news today is that another LeEco phone with dual cameras has been spotted an an online store. The store has the phone listed as the LeEco Le 2S Dual.
The online store lists the Le 2S Dual as having a 5.5-inch display, a Helio X25 processor, dual 13MP cameras on the rear, and a 12MP front-facing camera. The source says the store has pictures of the phone powered on showing it is genuine and the device’s model number is listed as LEX659.
The Le 2S Dual has the same antenna design as the LEX652 but sports a different color. There is also a fingerprint scanner below the dual-camera setup. Some say both the Le 2S Dual (LEX659) and LEX652 are the same device and that the phone was not launched last year because of the company’s financial troubles.
The Le 2S Dual is priced at ¥1000 ($144) which is not a bad price for a phone with dual cameras, a Helio X25 SoC, and a 5.5-inch display. The only other phone with similar specifications is the Xiaomi Redmi Pro which is priced at $185 for the 3GB+64GB version with a Helio X20 processor and almost $200 for the 3GB+64GB version with a Helio X25 chip.
