An unidentified LeEco-branded handset has reportedly shown up on the official #Chinese #patent website. The device’s schematics and design have been subsequently revealed, thanks to the pictures posted on the website. The latest spotting goes on to suggest that the Chinese technology giant is working on a new Android-powered smartphone.

Whether this device will be exclusive to the Chinese market or will be launched in the form of an international variant as well – is something that only time will tell. However, back in 2016, Forbes did note that their products were mostly being released to the U.S. market. The images posted on the Chinese Patent website indicate that the upcoming LeEco smartphone will come out with a standard design, according to Android Headlines.

The last smartphone that LeEco introduced was back in fall of 2016 and now it is assumed that the recently surfaced smartphone might be the company’s flagship 2017/18 offering. LeEco doesn’t appear to have settled on any one name for the upcoming device, but it seems like the firm won’t be experimenting at all when it comes to the design aspect of their smartphones. The images that appeared on the Chinese Patent website were well shot from all the possible angles, revealing the alleged device in its full glory.

Design, specs, and features

The information revealed through the website indicates that the smartphone will seemingly pack a basic display with a normal aspect ratio. The size bezels of the upcoming smartphone are slim-looking; however, the front and bottom bezels are kept minimal.

The device also seems to have a normal-looking front camera module, complimented with a proximity sensor as well. The earpiece is situated on the bottom side of the handset.

Users can see the power and volume buttons located on the sides of the smartphone, with the SIM-card tray placed at the bottom. The device seems to be carrying a dual speaker setup as well – which seems to be among the top primary specifications of the upcoming device. The smartphone also comes along with a USB Type-C charging port along with a microphone/IR blaster. In other words, LeEco will be eliminating the #Headphone Jack from the upcoming device. The company had already eliminated the headphone jack from its previous Le Pro 3 smartphone.

A flagship device

As pointed out by Android Headlines, the upcoming smartphone is heavily-speculated to fall in the premium category of smartphones. The device will be built based on metal finishing, and it is highly possible that the device might be introduced towards the end of this month – however, this has not been confirmed by the company yet.
