lephoneLeEco at its 2Future event in New Delhi on Wednesday launched its second generation of smartphones, the Le 2 and the Le Max 2. All these devices were unveiled earlier this year at an event in Beijing. At the beginning of the year it was the first to announce a phone with the Snapdragon 820 processor and now according to local Chinese reports the manufacturer is racing forward to launch a smartphone with the Snapdragon 823 processor inside at Mobile World Congress Shanghai later in June. Known as Letv at the time — it has since rebranded to become LeEco, and that’s “eco” for ecosystem.

LeEco Le 2

The LeEco Le2 has similar design and doesn’t show big changes from the predecessor Le 1s.

The main highlight of the device is Continual Digital Lossless Audio (CDLA) audio standard for loss-less audio through USB Type-C port and doesn’t have 3.5mm audio jack.
