Leagoo, a brand owned by OTEDA group from China has launched a mid-range handset for the holiday season. The Alfa 1 smartphone is the new arrival that is being touted as one of the best designed mid-range smartphones from company. This metal bodied smartphone is claimed to be build with a 5.0mm metal frame.
The Leagoo Alfa 1 comes with a large 5.5-inch 720p display that counts for 267PPI (Pixel Per Inch) pixel density.

Powered by a Quad-core Cortex A7 processor with 28nm size, it clocks at 1.3GHz. It is stated to offer smooth operation and efficient power consumption according to the brand.
There is a 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage available on the device supporting the CPU. Meanwhile, you can add up to 64GB of storage space via microSD card slot. It is unknown what version of Android is this device running on, but it is understandable from the images that it’s a custom interface, not your usual stock Android.
While talking about the camera department, it packs 13-megapixel Sony image sensor, company didn’t exactly revealed the specifics of it, but we hope it’s the popular IMX214 that is on the OnePlus One, Xiaomi Mi 4 and Obi Worldphone SF1. On the front, it has a 5-megapixel image sensor for the selfie and video calling needs. The rear camera module is capable of recording up to 4K video at 30 fps while 1080p video at 60fps.
Regarding connectivity options, the device lacks 4G LTE connectivity as according to the specs on their official website. But like Android OS details are missing on company’s site, it might be true that they might have missed out on adding 4G connectivity is missing. It’s just a speculation, which you should take with a pinch of salt. Other interesting pointers are support of Dual SIM, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, microUSB and OTG. All this is powered by a 3000mAh capacity battery.
