The upcoming LeEco X10 has been seen in the GFXBench recently.
It shows top end specs with dual cameras for front and rear and is codenamed X85x. Another smartphone that was codenamed X850 was seen earlier, being TENAA certified in China and showing similar high-end specifications. It is being reported that the LeEco X10 will be announced at the MWC 2017 to be held next month.
Dual Camera Setup
The X850 showed some top specs, namely a Quad HD display screen and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 or the 821-chip set. The new LeEco X10, codenamed X85x shows dual cameras for both front facing and back facing cameras. The front camera is a dual 16 MP one, with the back being dual 13 MP cameras. It seems that the new X85x device could be the higher end variant of the earlier X850 device seen on the GFXBench.
Rumored Specs Le X10
The upcoming LeEco X10 will probably come with a 5.5 inches screen display of 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution, which is a Quad HD one. It will be powered by a 2.35 GHz, Quad core, Snapdragon 821 with 64 bit processor, being combined with a graphics card of Adreno, 530 GPU. The RAM will be 4 GB DDR4 and the internal storage is 32 GB. Another variant comes with a 6 GB DDR4 of RAM and a bigger internal storage of 64 GB.
The Le X10 will come with a dual SIM, with both being nano SIMS. It will run on the Android Marshmallow, 6.0 version. The rear camera is a dual 13 MP one, having a dual tone, LED flash feature and capable of video recording at 4K. As for the front camera, it is also a dual camera of 16 MP and is capable of video recording at a resolution of 1080 pixels.
It is said that the upcoming Le X10 will come in two color options of Coffee gray and Gold, which is similar to the colors of the Le X850.
Expanding the Portfolio
LeEco has not been doing too well on the financial front. It is a Chinese manufacturer and had launched the flagship device, the Le Pro 3 in the US. Now, it is planning to improve its portfolio with some high-end smartphones. There are rumors that the new high-end devices mentioned above will be announced at the MWC to be held next month. However, there is no confirmation regarding this news.
The LeEco X10 surely seems to be a high-end device going by the top end specs. However, there are some features that might not allow it to be qualified as a high-end smartphone. For one, the LeEco X10 comes with the Snapdragon 820 chipset, which is not the latest one. It is also supposed to run on the Android Marshmallow, 6.0.1 version and not the Nougat version. The present device by LeEco, the Le Pro 3, comes with a newer processor, the Snapdragon 821, so a new flagship device should at least sport the same processor if not an upgraded one. In addition, it is also expected that a high end device should run on the latest Android Nougat and not on Marshmallow.
