If you’re hankering after a smartphone with a ‘notch’ and for it to have S9 in its name then Leagoo has you covered. And all for $150.
At the Mobile World Conference this week Leagoo released more details about its upcoming Leagoo S9 smartphone, proudly carrying the slogan ‘World’s First Android Notch Display Smartphone’.

In addition to a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor the ‘notch’ houses the technology to enable a “Face Access” feature unlocking the phone in under 0.1 seconds.
In further homage to the iPhone X, the S9’s user interface also features on-screen controls for returning home and going backward within apps.
For a $150 you’re furnished with a 5.85-inch “HD+” IPS notch display, 13MP+2MP dual rear cameras courtesy of Sony, with an as yet unnamed 1.5Ghz 8-core chipset, 4GB RAM and 3300mAH battery.
We’re still waiting for a release date and Leagoo’s website also references the S9 Pro but hasn’t provided any specs.
