LEAGOO S9 a notch phone like the iPhone X with Android 8.1 prepares its launch

A few months ago we met the LEAGOO S9 Smartphone at an event of the MWC 2018, an interesting terminal for the specifications it presents given its price. A terminal that stands out for its 5.85″ screen with curved edges and top notch, a good combination of cameras that are promoted with a curious 23x zoom effect and the Android 8 Oreo system installed by default.

SoC, RAM and storage

At a hardware level the LEAGOO S9 includes a Octa Core Mediatek MT6750 SoC as the main element, a chip that integrates 2 processor clusters, one Quad Core ARM Cortex-A53 that reaches 1.0 GHz and another Quad Core with a maximum speed of 1.5 GHz, for the graphical section we have a Mali-T860mp2 GPU. It also includes 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage memory that can be expanded up to 128 GB by the microSD card reader that comes included in the Dual SIM slot.

Screen and other features

The screen is a 5.85″ IPS with a resolution of 1512 x 720 pixels (HD+), with a Notch design that occupies 90% of the front area, the glass is curved 2.5D. At the camera level, it includes an 8 MP OmniVision in the front panel with face recognition for unlocking, wears a dual rear camera with a 13 MP Sony IMX258 sensor and a secondary 2 MP with flash that, according to advertising, achieves a 23x zoom without loss, although it does interpolate multiple images and the result may be peculiar.

In terms of connectivity in the LEAGOO S9 we found a microSD card reader in the Dual SIM slot that supports micro SIM and nano SIM, audio jack and a microUSB port. In the back we have a fingerprint reader with a response time of 0.1s. The default operating system is Android 8.1 with a slight layer of brand customization.
