Chinese behemoth LeEco, who is also aching to establish its ecosystem of devices globally, refreshed its superphone portfolio yesterday, and the flag bearer is Le Max 2.
This time LeEco has sided with the prevailing trend of 5.7 inch displays (As if going any bigger was an option), with QHD resolution. The metal unibody phone is also running the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow based EUI software.
Le Max 2 also got loads of hardware muscle to flaunt. There is top of the line Snapdragon 820 quad core chipset ticking at 2.15GHz paired with 4GB RAM (32GB/ 64GB storage) and 6GB RAM (64GB storage). That should be good enough for pretty much anything that you throw at it.
For photography, there is a 21 MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture lens, OIS, phase detection autofocus and LED flash, apart from the 8MP front camera for detailed selfies. The Le Max 2 uses an Qualcomm's latest ultrasonic fingerprint sensor which is faster, more secure and more accurate than capacitive fingerprint sensors we usually see in modern smartphones.
The handset also relies on USB Type C audio, i.e., you won't find the traditional 3.5 mm audio jack on the phone. Le Max 2 will support CDLA loss-less audio, Dolby Atmos, but won't work with your traditional headsets. Other features include 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, USB Type C port and 3100mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0.
Le Max 2 is expected to come in India sooner rather than later. The lowest price of Le Max2 4GB/32GB variant in India is 22,999 INR. The LeEco Le Max2 6GB/64GB variant best price in India is 29,999 INR. Aggressive pricing by LeEco certainly has made things interesting. You will be able to buy Le Max2 online in India from Flipkart and LeMall. Registration for flash sales open on 20th June.read more →
