LeEco has been trying to make a mark in the market with its affordable smartphones that come loaded to the brim with the latest and the most powerful hardware. It is today that the company unveiled Le 2, the successor to its Le1s at an event held in China. The LeEco Le 2 hasn’t exactly been a secret and was also spotted on the recent TENAA certification and so has the Le 2 Pro at the benchmarks.
Delving straight to the specifications of the Le 2 leaves us with a 5.5-inch FHD display, deca core Helio X20 paired with a 3GB RAM. On the storage front the LeEco Le 2 offers 32GB of internal storage. The Le 2 is fitted with a 16-Megapixel primary sensor and a 8-Megapixel secondary camera. The device would be running the EUI overlay on the Android Marshmallow.
Connectivity options include 4G LTE, VoLTE, dual SIM, Type-C USB and Bluetooth 4.1. The Le 2 also comes with a fingerprint sensor and a 3000mAh battery pack.
The Le 2 Pro comes with VR support, a bumped up 21-Megapixel sensor and 4GB of RAM. As you might have already guessed the Le Max 2 is a more powerful offering that comes powered by Snapdragon 820 along with 6GB of RAM and on the storage front offers 64GB of memory. The 5.7-inch QHD super retina display comes with adaptive brightness that will lower the display intensity in dark, much like the night mode others offer. It would also be good to entertain the possibility that the LeEco Le 2 might come powered with a Snapdragon chipset instead of MediaTek in India.
LeEco has bought about some evolutionary changes when it comes to audio, it has ditched the 3.5mm analog jack and has embraced CDLA (Continuous Digital Loseless Audio) which makes use of the type-C USB. This move might upset the target audience since Apple and LeEco serve an extremely different set of users.
The pricing for the new Le handsets is as follows, the Le 2 will retail at 1,099 Yuan (apprx. Rs 11,300) and Le 2 Pro will retail at 1,399 Yuan (apprx. Rs 14,300). The 4GB RAM and 32GB ROM version of Le Max 2 is priced at 2,099 Yuan (apprx. Rs 21,500), while the top of the line Le Max 2 with 64GB internal memory and 6GB RAM is priced at 2,499 Yuan (apprx. Rs 25,600). It is still not clear on when the devices will be launched in India but considering the traction company is picking up with Le 1s we doubt if they will delay the launch.
