LeEco is the latest Chinese smartphone brand to test its fortune in the U.S market. The company has debuted the Chinese smartphone market in 2014 by launching the LeEco Le 1, Le 1 Pro, and Le Max. Now, it also has some good sales in India with the earlier launched Le 1S, Le 2, and Le Max 2 smartphones. Though the company is now selling its smartphones in the U.S, we hope the company isn’t doing what it might it might have thought. While the Le Pro 3 powered by Snapdragon 821 SoC is the latest smartphone to be launched by the company. In November, a new flagship smartphone from LeEco with the model number LeX850 is spotted on TENAA. Apart from the camera module, the design looks similar to the LePro 3 with brushed Aluminum body. Now the about page screenshot shared on Weibo confirms the LEX850 to be launched as Le Max3 smartphone.
It will be the successor to the popular Le Max2 smartphone that came with Snapdragon 820 SoC and 6GB of RAM. Coming to the design part, the curved Antenna bands can be found on the top and bottom edge of the device. A few months back, we had reported about the LeEco LeX650 which is expected to be the first ever dual camera smartphone from the company. Now the LeX850 also sports the dual camera setup and features even better specifications than the Le X650. It sports the same 5.7-inch IPS display with Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution as on Le Max2. Under the hood, the device will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor clocked at 2.34GHz and coupled with Adreno 530 GPU. From the TENAA listing, the device comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
We also expect to see 6GB RAM variant with 128GB of onboard storage. It runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow based EUI 5.8 OS and the Android 7.0 Nougat update can’t be expected anytime soon. While the Le Max2 came with a 3,100mAh non-removable battery, the upcoming Le X850 features a 3,900mAh battery along with Quick Charge 3.0 support. However, the biggest changes can be found in the camera department. The Le X850 sports 13MP dual rear cameras with dual tone LED flash and a 16MP selfie camera on the front. Though the Le Max2 came with a 21MP sensor, the Le X850 with dual 13MP sensor might capture even better images. The device lacks the 3.5mm audio port but comes with a USB Type-C earphones using the CDLA technology. According to the listing, the device will be available in Gray and Gold color options.
It measures 157.25 × 77.95 × 7.99 mm and weighs 185 grams. The Le X850 supports dual SIM dual standby and offers 4G VoLTE connectivity. As of now, there is no information about the launch of this device. Last week, the company also launched a new smartphone called Cool S1 in collaboration with Coolpad. It is the same Le Pro3 but comes with a minor changes and additionally comes with custom made Harman AKG Earphones. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for the official specifications along with the pricing and availability of the upcoming Le Max3 smartphone.
