LeEco (formerly known as Letv) has announced the Le 2 in India. Like its predecessor, the phone offers sleek metal construction and competitive specifications at an affordable price.
The metal-clad handset shares the design language with the Xiaomi Note 3, Honor 5X, and YU Yunicorn. It is the first budget phone to adhere to the Continual Digital Lossless Audio (CDLA) audio standard. What’s weird is that it lacks a 3.5 mm audio jack. Instead, it makes use of the USB Type-C port. This means that the phone is only compatible with LeEco’s proprietary accessories. Reason enough for any sensible person who owns a good pair of IEMs not to invest in this phone.
The phone sports a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS screen. It is powered by the Snapdragon Octa-Core Snapdragon 652 chipset clocked 1.8 GHz. The phone has 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. There’s no microSD card slot.
In the photography department, you get a 16 megapixel rear camera. For selfies, there’s an 8 megapixel front-facing snapper too. Other features include a fingerprint sensor, IR blaster, 4G LTE support, and 3000 mAh battery with fast charging.
The LeEco Le 2 is pegged at Rs 12,000. It will soon be available via Flipkart.
