- The upcoming Leagoo S10 will be a budget device featuring an in-display fingerprint sensor.
- The design of the Leagoo S10 is heavily lifted from the iPhone X and the Huawei P20 Pro.
- It’s possible that the Leagoo S10 will be the world’s most affordable device with an in-display fingerprint sensor when it launches.
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.
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.
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.
You can also visit the Leagoo website to guess the specs and price of the device. One lucky winner will get a Leagoo S10 for free.
