Perhaps LeEco would be making its statement with a stunning launch on June 29. The company has released a poster (leaked by GizmoChina) about an event on June 29 that is said to release the first smartphone with Snapdragon 821 or Snapdragon 823 coupled with 8GB RAM. The smartphone may also sport a 25MP camera, the report added.
While the poster doesn’t reveal much about the specifications of the smartphone, it stated the launch to be a “new flagship”. At CES 2016, Qualcomm has revealed the first smartphone that will be powered by the new Snapdragon 820 processor. The chipmaker confirmed that the Chinese brand Letv’s Le Max Pro will be the first handset to sport its latest top-end mobile processor. The confirmation from Qualcomm raises the hope further.
In CES 2016, there were also reports that the Le Max Pro will pack features such as Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Sense ID ultrasonic fingerprint technology, which is claimed to be more secure than capacitive sensors. The new flagship smartphone may feature this as well.
The 821 processor is expected to see a higher clock speed of 2.5GHz. Recently, LeEco launched its Le Max 2 with 6GB RAM in China and India. Le Max 2 goes on sale on Flipkart on June 28 and the 6GB RAM version is priced at Rs. 29,999. GizmoChina further stated that the handset will have a similar design to that of Le Max 2 and will come in two color variants – blue and red. The price of the device is speculated to be at CNY 2,999 (approximately Rs. 30,000).
Considering the fact that the 6GB variant Le Max 2 was launched recently and is yet to become the mainstream among the high-end smartphones, 8GB RAM seems to be an early launch.
