LeEco Le 2 unofficially hits India ahead of its expected June 8th debut
LeEco, formally LeTV, might not be a major player in the smartphone world but that hasn’t stopped the company from announcing some pretty cool products, including the very first Snapdragon 820 powered phone, back at CES 2016. LeEco isn’t holding still either. In April, the company revealed its next-gen Le 2 family with pre-orders kicking off in China just last month. The LeMax 2 and Le 2 were expected to arrive to India as well on June 8th, but the latter of these handsets is already unofficially available in the country.
Thanks to an unofficial Ebay India listing, the LeEco Le 2 can be picked up in limited quantities for a likely higher than retail price of INR 22,999, or roughly $340. The actual final price will probably be much cheaper, but when you consider the specs, even the Ebay price is not too bad.
The LeEco Le 2 has a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display and is powered by a Mediatek Helio X20 processor with 3GB RAM. On the back is a 16MP rear camera, with an 8MP front cam. There’s also a fingerprint scanner and a 3000 mAh battery. All these specs are found within a sleek, attractive aluminum body.
The user interface is also very interesting with what LeEco is creating, not just because of the phone itself, but because LeEco is actually creating a whole ecosystem including phones, TVs, headsets and even cars. There is a lot of untapped potential in the mobile market in India, and with the right price these phones could do very well.
What do you think, would you be interested in picking up this phone once it arrives to India? What do you feel would be a reasonable asking price? Are you guys intrigued by what LeEco is doing? I, for one, am.
