After unofficially landing in India in late May, the LeEco Le 2 has now formally launched at a special event in New Delhi, alongside the Le Max 2 (pictured above). While LeEco is far from a household name, the company has been making a lot of waves in 2016, thanks to a combination of great specs and aggressive pricing.
The LeEco 2 will set consumers back just ₹11,999, or roughly $180, making it a budget friendly option. Meanwhile, the more powerful Le Max 2 will sell for ₹22,999, which is right around $345. Both of these phones are very aggressively priced when you consider the specs that come with them.
The LeEco Le 2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor with 3GB RAM. The display is a 5.5-inch screen with 1080p, and in the camera department you’ll find a 16MP shooter on the rear and an 8MP camera up front. You also get a fingerprint scanner, 32GB storage, dual SIM support, a 3000mAh battery, USB-C for charging and audio, and an attractive aluminum design.
The Le Max 2, on the other hand, has the same kind of specs you’d expect from a high-end Android flagship. At the heart of the Le Max 2 is a Snapdragon 820 processor with a 4GB RAM and 32GB storage, or a whopping 6GB RAM with the 64GB storage model. You also get a 5.7-inch QHD display, a 21MP Sony IMX230 rear camera, an 8MP front shooter, dual SIM support, USB-C for charging and audio, and a 3100 mAh. Like the Le 2, you get all these specs encased inside metallic phone that is very attractive, though admittedly very reminiscent of many other metal smartphones currently out there.
It’s also worth noting that LeEco has a ton of special services on offer for video and more, and these services will be included free with both phones for a year. Expect the handsets to go on sale late this month primarily through LeMall — the company’s online sales portal in India.
