LeTV get in on the October launch action

letv le 2 x500

LeTV are the next big name to have a launch in October, with the release of the LeTV X500 scheduled for 27th October.

Starting on the 15th of this month ZTE will begin the launch party with the release of the ZTE Nubia X8 smartphone, a phone with bezel less display and side fingerprint scanner. Xiaomi are next with a mystery device launch (poss the Mi Pad 2) on the 19th October. Then it is the turn of Meizu on the 21st with a metal version of the Meizu M2 note, and then on the 27th it is the turn of LeTV.

LeTV have confirmed that they will have a launch in Beijing on the 27th. The event will be for a phone possible named the Le 2, which sounds like the replacement for the very popular Le 1.

Gizchina News of the week

Antutu benchmarks for the Le TV X500 (the codename for the Le 2) tell us that the device will have a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 5 mega-pixel front, 3GB RAM, 32GB memory and a Mediatek Helio X10 chipset. If those specs sound similar it is because they are the same as the Le 1, so what differences will there be?

We believe that this is going to be a phone with all new material and build. As this is named the X500 and the current Le 1 is the X600 we might assume that a unibody plastic design could be used to keep the cost of the phone down to around 999 Yuan. Then again as it is the Le 2 , couldn’t it be an all new unibody alloy phone with PDAF and fingerprint scanner?

Was do you think the LeTV Le 2 launch will have in store for us?

    if they are going to use a unibody plastic design, then they should add a fingerprint in the back or on the side, like everybody else- not on the front, because its not convenient

    Many of the devices on launch this months are all counterattacks to redmi note 2, and i love xiaomi for what has started… By the way, redmi note 2 has a great success not only for the great soc at such low price, but for other feature like microsd and removable battery too… So i really hope that this letv will feature a plastic body (hopefully with removable rear and battery), but most of all, a microsd support, that is what stopped many from buying the x600… Otherwise, i don’t see the point in buying it when there is already the redmi note 2 with more useful features and with a great name as xiaomi behind its back!

    They call their device “Apple 2”? Lol
    A bit more creativity is warranted!
