Leagoo S9 Hands On Review: One of the Cheapest Clones of the iPhone X


Leagoo S9 is the perfect synthesis of the two most imitated flagship of recent months: its design is reminiscent of the iPhone X (not included, of course) but its name seems inspired by Samsung’s Galaxy S9, among other things presented in the same fair and one of the main causes of “illustrious absences” at least in the smartphone category. Unlike Motorola, Huawei, and LG, this small Chinese company was not afraid to deal with Samsung and proudly brought its new terminal to MWC 2018.


Despite its design, Leagoo S9 is an inexpensive smartphone with medium-low range technical features and it is externally virtually indistinguishable from the iPhone X. It is also equipped with a frameless display that occupies almost the whole front surface, and a small, bang-like, cutout at the top. At the same time, the device was called S9, as well as the flagship smartphone of the South Korean company Samsung presented recently. Probably, this “hybrid” should increase sales of Leagoo S9.

On the back, you will find the glossy material and a vertically aligned ‘dual’ camera like Apple’s iPhone X, The Camera will most likely, as with many devices in the price range, be just fine. In addition, the smartphone will be equipped with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.


Leagoo S9 mainstay Smartphone is relying on 5.85-inch screen support with an aspect ratio of the current, ie 18: 9. This phone screen brings IPS panel technology with brilliant HD + resolution (1512 x 720 pixels). Unfortunately, it is not known whether it is protected by an anti-scratch coating or not. This middle-class smartphone uses the Android operating system 8.0 Oreo with Android stock interface.


Leagoo S9 mainstream Smartphone also saves power compete with the support of octa-core processor from MediaTek MT6750 chipset that ran with speed up to 1.5 GHz and supported graphics from Mali-T860 MP2. The phone is equipped with 4GB of RAM memory and 32GB internal memory which can be expanded via a microSD slot.

This smartphone is equipped with a capacity of 3300mAh battery to meet the needs of power. The rest of the features include a 3.5 mm audio jack, WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0 and 4G-LTE and a USB type C port. Except to fingerprint scanner, the smartphone is equipped with a face recognition system, but not as complex and advanced as the one used in the iPhone X Face ID.

The camera becomes one of Leagoo S9,because of relying on dual rear-facing cameras with a 16MP resolution which is tagged with the same 2MP second camera, as well as reinforced phase-detection autofocus and LED flash features. Dual camera configuration on the back side is able to present the feature of DSLR camera style bokeh. The Leagoo S9 front camera is also quite adequate for video calls or selfie photos with 8MP lens.

Price and Release Date

Leagoo S9 costs just $150 (maybe even less) and is suitable for those who want to try an iPhone X like experience on Android. It is not the first Android model with a notch (by the way you have followed the presentation of ZenFone 5 ), but it will undoubtedly be one of the most convenient. While it is not known exactly when the premiere of Leagoo S9 Pro will take place. However, the emergence of mobile devices created on the basis of MediaTek Helio P40 is projected in the 2nd quarter of this year, so the entrance to the device market should be expected closer to summer.
