Chinese company LeEco has confirmed an event on June 29 where it is expected to reveal a new smartphone powered by the anticipated Snapdragon 821 (which has reportedly been rebranded as the Snapdragon 823) processor. LeEco is expected to showcase the new smartphone at the Mobile World Congress, Shanghai which also commences on June 29.

The official teaser from the company doesn't reveal much about the product but there are rumours that suggest the handset will pack Snapdragon 821 or 823 processor.

We will have to wait till June 29. The way rumours are shaping up, LeEco may launched the Le Max 2 Pro at the event.

Gizmo China reports that the new LeEco smartphone may sport 8GB of RAM alongside 25-megapixel rear camera. The report claims that the upcoming LeEco handset may be priced at CNY 2,999 (approximately Rs. 30,000).

The Chinese company is gearing to enter the US market this fall. The company confirmed that LeEco is hiring employees in the US which means it will kick off operations soon. LeEco however hasn't revealed a fixed timeline for the US market entry.

LeEco recently launched the Le Max 2 and Le 2 smartphones in India.
