Leak: LeEco continue their pursuit for the truly borderless phone with the Le 2


LeEco (formerly Letv) are among the pioneers of the ‘bezel-less’ revolution that has taken over the smartphone market. Instead of having thick bezels outside of the phone’s screen, companies are now offering phones with a border under the digitiser.

However, the truly bezel-less phone still evades us. Hugo Barra said at the Mi 5 launch that “there is no truly bezel-less phone”.

LeEco, however, seem to be vested in their pursuit for a bezel-less device. We all know the Le 2 is on its way, and the device could be what LeEco have always had in mind.

Some pictures and renders of the phone just made their way to us. According to the leaks, the LeEco Le 2 will have a super high screen to body ratio. Alright, let’s take a look at the source material now.

The Le 2 will succeed the Le 1, which means it won’t really be the company’s flag-bearer. The Le Max Pro currently does the job, and will continue to be the flagship for the months to come.

Nonetheless, the LeEco Le 2 is expected to be a fairly powerful budget phone with a MediaTek Helio X20, 3GB RAM, and 32GB on-board storage among other specifications.

    Hope, they will add sd card support this time.

      That was the only gripe we had last time with le1s.

        And also the relatively small battery of 3000 mAh..now 4000 + mAh is par for a 5.5 inch screen phone. Le1s was not super success it should have been in India for these 2 small misses by LeEco.

          Yeah they need to further optimize their os to provide better battery life. A 4000mah battery will be most welcome.

          because they want a sim phone.

    Minimizing every mm on the sides while wasting tons of space at the lower end (because of stupid onscreen buttons) feels and looks completely retarded

      On-screen buttons? Which phone do you mean?

        highwind talks untrue stuff again, he writes this under every letv article. You are right, the Le1 and Le1s have capacitive buttons.

    Meanwhile teena certification already told us that dimensions are the same as 1s, so we’ll have black borders all around…

      I agee with you too. I don’t think Le2 (x621) will not be a truly bezel-less phone. But there could be other Le2 models (like: Max or Pro) with better screen and body ratio.

    Shame there is no global rom. But understandable as its not made for us outside China.

    As for these fingerprint readers on the front… why don’t they just have a raised edge with the same colour as the background? It would look classy not chrome surround tacky! Hugo!! Cap light up buttons of course in the bottom.Not a fan of sticky out lenses unless they have some kind of protective edge.
    Otherwise it seems a pretty “OK” device, 3GB is probably fine with Marshmallow.

            not really, they tried it once but it didnt work out, but have vowed to return to the phone market.

      Hope so, all major phone makers found out, that users want TF slots. LeEco would be foolish not to include it.

          Trans Flash. It was one of the early names for SD cards.

    I don’t understand, really…
    How can a device be borderless when its screen body ratio is obviously WORSE than the first Letv s1 x600 (74.2 mm x 147.8 mm x 9.5 mm)???
