We have seen Leagoo providing smartphones around the globe for the best price, whether it’s a rugged or non-rugged, plastic or metal. So what’s next for Leagoo? What’s missing? Well, we have never seen Leagoo competing in the high-end section. But, soon the dream of the enthusiasts will turn into reality as the manufacturer from the Chinese land is looking forward to stepping in the intense top-tier section with the upcoming release of Leagoo T10. Leagoo has been generous to the audience regarding hardware and features. The examples are in front of like M5 Plus, T1 and now T10. Like we said previously, Leagoo T10 is the company’s first attempt to forge a top-end beast and that’s why it’s Leagoo’s backbone and the ultimate flagship of the year 2016.
Design & Appearance
Leagoo T10 seems to be the younger brother of T1, as not only the names accord but also the designs are somewhat similar. For a much premium experience, Leagoo T10 forged from metal and in fact has an all Metal Unibody layout. You can question anything but never doubt the toughness of Leagoo smartphones as Leagoo is famous for molding some shockproof smartphones and hopefully Leagoo T10 will inherit the same robustness from its ancestors. The only change we witness in the appearance of T10 from T1 is the shifting of LED flash from the center to an upgraded dual LED flash to the top left. Plus, T10 is 1mm thicker than T1 because of the hardware and battery.
Hardware & Configuration
Like a wise man said “never judge a book by its front cover,” similarly never judge T10 from its shell. Even though Leagoo T10 is identical to T1, in design and appearance but that doesn’t mean the configuration will be the same. What’s under the hood is truly incredible and the principal selling point of the terminal. We experience the presence of Helio X20, a deca-core processor as the heart of flagship beating at the frequency of 2.0GHz. Are we the only one who thinks that the name ‘T10’ matches the 10 cores and tri-cluster design of Helio X20 perfectly? It is further accompanied by a tremendous 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage with the expandable option via Micro-SD card (up to 128GB). The phone cherishes with the Dual SIM support along 4G+ network support.
What’s more interesting is that Leagoo has broken the tradition of introducing standard 5.5-inch HD screens in its smartphones, as we have a stunning 5.7-inch screen with Full-HD resolution integrated with Leagoo T10. The rear camera remains the same with 13MP (Samsung Sensor, 5P lens) with PDAF. Meanwhile, the front one has been upgraded to 13 MP (Sony Sensor, AF PDAF, 4P lens) from 8MP when compared to its ancestor. Seriously, how frequently do we see a 13MP front camera? There are some untouched features as well including the rear fingerprint readerwith a response time of 0.19 secs (Fingerprint ID 3.0), Smart gestures, Gyroscope. The T10 smartphone runs on Leagoo 2.1 OS based on Android 6.0 which is the most stable, fastest and fun UI. At last, a massive 3500 mAh Li-Polymer, non-removable battery powers the flagship and charges in no time with the USB Type-C 2.0 interface.

Another Surprise Awaits
Leagoo also said that along Leagoo T10 another smartphone would also hit the stage as a surprise. Maybe, the successor of M5 known as “Leagoo M8” with a better budget-friendly price, same toughness and upgraded hardware. Let’s see whether the phone will be M8 or something else. As far as M8 smartphone is concerned, it’s not a surprise anymore.
