Word is, aspiring Chinese hardware and services vendor LeEco (formerly LeTV) is going to launch one of the first Snapdragon 821-powered Android smartphones. Reportedly, the device is going to be named the LeEco Le 2S Pro, Le 3 Pro, or Le Pro 3. While the rumor mill hasn't set the name in stone yet, we get to learn from an official invitation that the smartphone (most probably) will be inveiled September 21 in China.
This could be the second Snapdragon 821 device to hit the marketLeEco was beaten to the market by ASUS, whose ZenFone 3 Deluxe became the first Qualcomm Snapdragon 821-powered device to be put on sale. Of course, this won't stop LeEco from eventually releasing its highly souped up smartphone. Qualcomm's latest silicon aside, the phone will have as many as 6GB of RAM, 64GB of integrated storage, a 16MP main camera, and a rumored 5000mAh battery.
Mind you, reports say that the metal smartphone is only 7mm thick, which sounds unrealistic considering its massive battery capacity. Still, the smartphone is most likely going to launch about 9 days from now, which means we'll learn more about this interesting handset soon enough.
