Update August 21, 2018 (05:28PM EST): Leagoo announced the specs for the upcoming Leagoo S10, and it looks to be a whopper of a phone for its alleged price point.

The Leagoo S10 will have a 6.21-inch Full HD Plus AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2,248 x 1,080. It will have an in-display fingerprint scanner as well as AI face unlock.

Inside, it will run Android 8.1 Oreo on a Helio P60 12nm chipset, 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. There might be a second option with more storage, but we can’t confirm that yet.

Shutterbugs will be happy to see a dual-lens setup on the rear with Sony 20MP and 5MP cameras. There’s a 13MP sensor on the front for selfies.

Finally, the Leagoo S10 will feature an enormous, 4,050mAh battery that you’ll be able to charge wirelessly.

Leagoo has yet to release any information on the pricing or release date of the S10, but one source says it will cost less than $400 and launch sometime in October. If you don’t mind owning an iPhone X clone, you’d be getting quite the piece of hardware for that price.

Original Article, July 25, 2018 (11:41AM EST): Chinese smartphone manufacturer Leagoo has quickly made a name for itself by delivering affordable phones that look nearly identical to more expensive phones from competitors.

It looks like Leagoo is getting in on the in-display fingerprint sensor action with its upcoming flagship, the Leagoo S10. The device is listed on IndieGoGo with a “coming soon” tag.

Judging from the photos and broken-English text summaries of the device on the IndieGoGo page, the Leagoo S10 is a complete rip-off of the iPhone X on the front (kind of like the Leagoo S9). But on the back, it knocks off the color scheme of the Huawei P20 Pro.

Check out the device in this generic teaser trailer with cheesy graphics and a bland rock soundtrack:

It’s easy for one to look past the device’s design knock-offs when you add Leagoo pricing into the mix. Although no pricing is listed yet, the Leagoo S9 only cost about $300, so we can expect the S10 to be in the same range.

Editor's Pick

Even if the Leagoo S10 is considerably more expensive (like $500 or so), it will still be a bargain considering that it appears to feature dual rear cameras, an in-display fingerprint sensor, wireless charging, and a chipset with AI support. It also seems that the device will access global bands, making it work here in America.

No specs or release date are listed on the IndieGoGo page, but there is an email sign up form that says will get you a 21 percent early bird discount on the device once it launches. We could be wrong, but it doesn’t appear this will be a crowdfunded launch, but rather a pre-sale launch that will give Leagoo an idea of how many devices to make.
