Leagoo M9 Pro REVIEW
Leagoo introduced Metal to compliment the Plastic body when designing the Pro version. The rear reflects light in the most subtle way, looking much better than most budget smartphones. The dual shooters at the rear are still in a vertical position with the fingerprint scanner underneath.
The dual-LED flash has been moved all the way to the left, while the Leagoo logo is now underneath the fingerprint scanner in a vertical format as well. Nonetheless they both measure the same 9.5mm in thickness and weighs 153g overall. You can get the device in Gold, Black and Blue colors.
A bigger view for Leagoo lovers here, the M9 Pro offers a bigger screen than its predecessor and less bezels obviously, dishing out an 18:9 aspect ratio. The front LED flash now sits by the right hand side of the speaker grille at the top bezel, while the single selfie camera sits to the left. Focusing on the screen, the 5.72-inch FHD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen stretches all the way to the sides, with no narrow bezels in sight.
Boasting of a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels with 281 pixel per inch density, everything on the screen should be visible and sharp enough for users. The screen has GFF Full Lamination technology, 70% NTSC, 178 degree viewing angle. It also stretches up to 80% screen to body ratio, which is the highest ever for a budget smartphone.
