Leagoo S8 official hands-on and pictures released

Leagoo S8

Leagoo hosted their big launch event on September 28th in Shenzhen and during it released their two new full screen smartphones Leagoo S8 and S8 Pro. Then the China National Day holiday hit and everything ceased for a week in the country. Now they are back in full force and released a new hands-on video for the phone along some pictures of the black edition version.

One would think that they consider the 18:9 aspect ratio full screen as the biggest selling point for the models, but apparently they prefer to point out rather at the quad-camera as the most important feature of the phone. Why not.

Leagoo S8 is packing 5.72-inch Sharp 18:9 screen with HD+ 1440×720 pixel resolution, MT6750T processor, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 13MP+2MP Sony dual rear cameras, 8MP+2MP selfie dual cameras, LG 2940 mAh battery with 5V/2A quick charge and only 1mm thin bezels. That all for a retail price of $169.99.

The more powerful version Leagoo S8 Pro upgrades the display to 5.99-inch Sharp 18:9 screen with FullHD+ 2160×1080 pixel resolution, Helio P25 processor, 6 GB LPDDR4X RAM, 64 GB eMMC 5.1 internal storage, OV 13MP + Samsung 5MP dual rear camera, Samsung 13MP selfie cam and LG 3050 mAh battery with 9V/1.5A quick charge support. Pricing for this will be set at $299.99.

But with easy subscription for the official reservation on their website you can get a $50 discount coupon, either for Leagoo S8 or Leagoo S8 Pro. Worth a shot.
