Since its launch earlier this year in India, the LeEco Le 1s has enjoyed some manner of success due to its combination of specifications and relatively low price tag. The Chinese company is now looking at launching its successor, called the Le 2. LeEco has sent out media invites for an event in Beijing on April 20, where it is expected to launch the smartphone. In the meantime though specifications and features of the smartphone have been spotted on GFXBench benchmarking website.

LeEco Le 2 specifications, features: According to the listing (spotted by GizmoChina), the Le 2 will flaunt a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display, and will be powered by MediaTek’s MT6797T (Helio X25) deca-core chipset. This is an interesting choice, since MediaTek’s Helio X25 chipset was believed to be exclusive to the Meizu Pro 6 smartphone. Meizu’s smartphone is believed to be launching sometime next month boasting 6GB of RAM.
The Le 2 is also expected to feature Mali T880 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, 16-megapixel rear camera, and 8-megapixel selfie camera.
In comparison, the Le 1s featured a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2.2GHz MediaTek Helio X10 64-bit octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB internal storage. It also includes a 13-megapixel f/2.0 rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, 3,000mAh battery with fast charging, and connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, and USB Type-C port.
