2nd-gen Letv phone leaks: Letv’s quest for the bezel-less phone continues


s_127571c66efc4a5f89e25812162d57bbStarting late last year, we were served innumerable teasers and apparent leaks that depicted a bezel-less phone (or three) from Letv. However, as it turned out, all of the three Letv phones had… bezels.

If the newest pictures from earlier today are anything to go by, Letv’s quest for the bezel-less phone isn’t over yet. But they’re getting there.

A 2nd-generation Letv phone was ‘leaked’ by popular Chinese actress, Li Xiaolu aka Lulu. There seems to be an ulterior motive to the ‘leaks’ but all we’re interested in are the phone pictures.

After the images first appeared from the actress’s account, they were soon re-published by Letv’s official handle, adding to the confusion… or the rigged nature of the leaks.

Nonetheless, the device in question is believed to be the Letv 1S (at least one of the three upgrades), which is expected to make an appearance on the 27th this month.

The device does look like one you’ll want to own with the thin bezels and handy form factor. As for the pricing and specifications, the device should be well under the 2000 Yuan ($315) mark (something more along the lines of 1499 Yuan is what I expect), complete with a 2K display.

      It does, but it also appears to be around 5.5″. Wonder what cpu its packing to push that 2k screen?? The helio X10 isn’t really powerful enough, the SD810 has already been done and the Helio X20 and SD820 won’t be seen in a device this side of xmas, assuming it’s released in the next month or so.

        If LeTV is up to date with trends then the cheap one at least shoul come out with HELIO P10 for fair performance and good stamina then if this is going to be a TRIO as is was earlier this year then middle one might get the HELIO X10 or X20 or an upgraded/up-clocked version of the P10 and then the top-shelf unit migth get the SD820 as is going to cost them a dear penny to buy hence the cachet.

    Even with my eyes watching this beautifull renderings of this LeTV new device it seems i can’t get that BLUBOO XTOUCH out of my head,,, the thing is that is already in stock but is only 5” and i would love fot it to be 5.5″ it wasn’t on my wishlist, as the VOWNEY (ages) but that rear design even the sim+sd cards tray clicks my fancy. if they had not said there was a PRO version i would have bought it rigth this morning.

    HELP what should i do? WAIT????

        the problem is the other brands just throw random looking phones. taka an example at the gionee elife e8, i love it but can’t deny is as plain as a white peace of paper. then microsoft 950xl plastic plain pain. and most of the others think that the phone being plain metal is like the phone beeing the last coke in the desert. goshhh.

      don’t fall into the trap that Bluboo and Elephone set. Their phones look great and tick all the right boxes on paper. But the actual execution is always subpar.

    the other thing is will this LeTV have a fingerprint thing? i like to lock my phone every now and then if i’m going to a uncertain area/location and pin codes or eye gizmos are not my cup of tea.

    2k is totally stupid for the basic version. They can keep it for the Max or Pro but they really should consider a FHD Version of the One (S).

    2k would damage the good run they have since only brainless people believe that a inferior 2K display is better than a highly evolved FHD with good contrast and good Lumination.

    for some reason i hope for it not to look EXACTLY like this and more depart from the boxy or iphone like designs …. there should be more to it than that.

    Yash would be nice if you gave more spec, even if it means reposting from another article.

      for the love of ROMs, no MTK please or release the sources for the devs. even an 808 will do before xmas.

      My Galaxy S2 is still alive and kicking thanks to the ROM dev and maintainers. Would get to taste marshmallow as well before xmas.

    but there’s still that black border… don’t say it’s bezeless if it still has a bezel.

  9. October 22, 2015

    It may be bezeless, but it doesn’t look very good.
