LeEco LeMax 2 Pro with Snapdragon 821 SoC and rumored 8GB of RAM to be unveiled June 29th

The other day we told you that LeEco (formerly known as LeTV in China), will be making a big splash in the U.S. this fall when it launches handsets specially tailored to stateside millennials. Back home in China, the company has released a teaser for the unveiling of its latest beast, the LeEco LeMax 2 Pro. The introduction of the device will take place in China one week from today, Wednesday June 29th.

The LeMax 2 Pro will feature the Snapdragon 821 SoC, which is similar to the Snapdragon 820 but with a faster 2.3GHz CPU clock speed; the chipset still features the Adreno 530 GPU. The rest of the specs include a 5.7-inch LCD display with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. And the handset will reportedly carry 8GB of RAM inside.

The LeEco LeMax 2 Pro will have 128GB of native storage with a 200GB capacity microSD slot available for those seeking additional memory. An upgraded 25MP rear camera is found on the rear of the unit, with an 8MP front-facing camera to shoot selfies and handle video chats. Guess what? The LeEco LeMax 2 Pro will not have a 3.5mm earphone jack, and it will feature a USB-Type C port.

All of this will be confirmed next Wednesday when LeEco unveils the phone. Stay tuned!

Thanks for the tip!

if these Chinese companies starts running close to stock software and stop all the heavy skins they could destroy the competition in less than 2 years

Sooner or later they will take away the business from Samsung (which is the only non-Chinese Android OEM that matters). Even though many people on this side will hate me for my statements below, I still will speak out the truth. Samsung has failed to establish a true brand loyalty with its brand. They always market their products as the rational choice because of hardware superiority. The problem is, if someone comes up with similar hardware for a better price, Samsung's own marketing logic dictates the consumer to buy from the other guy. Samsung can only lose. Apple will be the third smiling actor.

If Apple is losing..... all the other OEMs aren't even playing in the game lol :D. Money talks in corporate circles, and they're the only one who's yapping. Uhhh how I wish HTC could change that though.

I see your point....but if that were true, why does Samsung sell so many phones? In my eyes, Samsung is Android's Apple..... perception wise anyways. I know people who would never buy an Android phone that isn't a Samsung device, despite my constant HTC praise. I hope that one day other Android OEMs get credit for their efforts.

Samsung = more marketing budget than all other android OEM put togeter. thats where its end. I will never buy samsung device has its has crappy return rate more return than any other oem per 10 phone sold at the store i work so no thanks.. Great design but bad quality.

That's true. The other OEMs have almost no marketing presence to speak of. Samsung makes incredible hardware indeed, but their software is..... pragmatic I guess would be my assessment.

Samsung sells so much because the Chinese OEMs have not started to enter western markets systematically. As soon as they go west, the Chinese will take away business from Samsung. Basically, if you look at China, you can see what will happen to Samsung in the rest of the world.

if Chinese OEMs start running stock software both apple and Samsung are going down , they are all offering top hardware for a really really low price ... look at the Xiaomi Mi5 ! it has a snapdragon 820 and 4gb of ram and great battery life a great camera and good build quality for a really really low price ! half the price of an iPhone and a s7 edge ... now take that phone and make it run stock android and watch it sell like hot cakes

Apple already going down and people are realizing their terrible mistake. That is what happens when your products sell on hip and coolness factor. Those things wear out and get tired and people start to realize that they are complete and utter losers for buying Apple products.

Well-Manicured-Man, please check who sell more smartphone than you can say that Samsung does not have a fan base. Even the most hated company in the 90 has a fan following. The human mind is weak and can be indoctrinated.

Never buy any China's mobiles. China is always against india development.

Nonsense. Every country from India to China to USA only takes decision keeping in mind their interests. There are no friends in global arena only interests which conflicts with others. China cared for it's interest and is now in top position but India was ruined by Congress for close to 60 years. This I say being an Indian

It that is true, then HTC should do phenomenally well with the 10. If selling a phone with close to stock software is really that much of a game changer, HTC will be a really good test for that theory.

Good point. I don't know where this myth that the average smartphone buyer cares about stock software came from, bit it isn't accurate at all. I'd wager that less than 1/10th of the Android user populace even knows what "Stock" Android is. HTC pandered to enthusiasts with the 10, not the average consumer.

That plus more LTE bands. Im tired of seeing these great unlocked devices with their own custom s**tty skin and with the usual 1/3/7 bands like really come on.

I still have a 7 year old Dell Inspiron 1440 with 4GB RAM/128 SSD that runs Windows 10 like a boss. The thing won't die.
