LeEco’s October lineup leaks early, including phones and Android TVs


LeEco, the company that surprisingly came in and purchased Vizio a few months ago, has an event slated for October 19th where it plans on announcing a handful of products for the US. That event should be exciting, but we won’t have to wait that long to find out what’s being announced.

LeEco has accidentally listed a batch of new products on their website, including two new smartphones and four new televisions running Android TV. Prices are all over the place, but specs and details are there, which means this was definitely some information that just happened to get published ahead of schedule.

The two new smartphones include the Le Max2 and the Le S3, with the former being their flagship offering the latter being a little more budget-conscious.

The Le Max2 reportedly features a 5.7-inch quad HD display with a Snapdragon 820 CPU, either 4 or 6GB of RAM, a 21-megapixel camera, Android 6.0, and a fingerprint scanner. The price is listed at $349, but it’s marked down to just $289 through December 16th of this year.

The Le S3 is a little more modest with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 652 CPU, and a 16MP camera, although it matches the fingerprint scanning, quick charging capabilities of the Max2. The site lists the S3 at $299 with a $60 discount bringing the total down to $169. You’re right, that math doesn’t add up, but I promise it’s not a typo on my end. It’s likely a placeholder price for LeEco that will be updated after the official announcement.

There are four televisions on offer too, which makes sense considering Vizio was a big name in televisions prior to the acquisition. We have a 43-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, and an 85-inch TV, all of which are 4k TVs and all of which run Android TV.

Pricing is completely out of whack on the four televisions, starting at $14.99 for the 43-inch and 65-inch and running $799 for the 55-inch and 85-inch. The only one that could possibly be correct is the 55-inch for $799, but if they announce some $15 4k televisions I’ll take 20, please.
