Altek Leo Bringing its 14MP Camera to Europe in Early 2011



We have been hearing about the Altek Leo off and on for the past few months, and even though the phone will carry Android 2.1 and a screen on the smaller size at 3.2-inches any possible hardware and software shortcomings you could think of are immediately forgotten in light of the phones epic 14MP camera with 3X optical zoom capabilities and 720p HD video recording. It was announced to be hitting Asia sometime in Q4 of this year, but Altek is now currently shopping the phone for a European release as well. While no carrie partners seem to have been locked down at this time, Altek is promising the beast will hit Europe’s shores in Q1 of 2011.

And if having what basically amounts to a digital camera with smartphone functionality in your pocket isn’t enough to get you excited about the Leo, we are now learning the phone will be a 3.5G handset capable of HSUPA speeds up to 5.76mbps and HSDPA speed of up to 7.2mbps. That should make it super convenient for uploading all those high quality photos at full resolution.

    One question, this device will be running by Android OS 2.1 Eclair: will be possible update it to 2.2 Froyo ??

  4. Dislike the 3.2″ screen. Come on now…

  5. What’s the price tag?

  6. They focused on the Camera and lacked in other departments, they wanted to be the first in something just to say they were the first….kind of like those annoying posters who say first.

  7. I am loving this 14MP on this phone, I really love it it’s nice

  8. Where is the face time camera or 4 inch screen?

  9. Official group of ALTEK LEO. Join !!!


  10. Nice phone.. But it will be great if there is a lens cover to protect the lens when it is not in use.


    I LOVE IT.

  12. yeah..its looks great!!

  13. It’s $499! Fk iphone i want this!!!

  14. a nice piece of work true enough, but i’m not loosing my camera for a phone. whats the point of a having more than 5MP if the ISO is still only 800 at best. i can only assume that the response rate and auto focus will be clunky enough that in all practicality the 14MP will be lost straight away. with that said, i’m really looking forward to the release. just one request, please atleast release 2.2 for SD support
