Flipkart and LeMall have gone live with the flash sale of LeEco’s latest offerings the Le 2 and the Le Max 2. The first phase of registration is over and the second phase started today at 4 PM for Le 2, while the Le Max 2 registrations open on 30th June at 4 PM. So, in case you missed the first phase, you get a second chance. In its latest offerings, LeEco decided to do away with the traditional 3.5 mm audio jack and replace it with a USB Type-C audio connector, which makes it the first ever smartphone to feature a USB Type-C port.
Presently, the Le 2 is available at Rs. 11,999, while the Le Max 2 comes with the price tag of Rs. 22,999, if you plan to buy them from LeMall or Flipkart. No doubt, the devices are targeted towards the budget segment, but do the features justify the price? Let’s find out.
LeEco Le 2 Specifications
A 5.5-inch handset priced at just Rs. 11,999 is a good deal in the first place. The device is powered by a 1.8 GHz Octa-core processor along with a 3 GB RAM. You get 32 GB of space, sufficient enough to store your favourite music, movies, images, and videos. Amazingly, the handset comes preloaded with the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow, making it one of the very few budget smartphones running on the new OS version. With that being said, we can most likely expect an upgrade to the upcoming Android N.
Making things a bit more interesting are the powerful 16 MP primary camera and an 8 MP front snapper. If a budget phone loaded with the best camera is what you are looking for, the Le 2 should be the one. Lastly, the device packs in a 3000 mAh battery that can charge up to 50% in just 30 minutes which is pretty fast.
So, overall, the LeEco Le 2 turns out to be a good choice if you are looking for a handset that costs you not more than 12 to 15K.
While the Le 2 most likely offers you everything you are looking for, LeEco plans to take things to the next level with the Le Max 2.
Le Max 2 Specifications
Priced at just Rs. 22,999, the Le Max 2 comes with a whole bunch of hi-tech goodness. Compared to its smaller version, the Le Max 2 features a slightly larger display at 5.7-inch, offering an impressive 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution. Clocked at 2.15 GHz, the processor ensures that speed isn’t a problem even when multitasking. The 6GB RAM is something that will surely take you by surprise as not many budget phones feature a RAM that powerful.
The device is currently available in 2 versions – one with 32 GB of space and the other with 64GB. Like the Le 2, this one too will run on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow. However, what further adds up to the glamour is the fantastic 21 MP rear camera. So, if you were planning to buy a digital camera, this handset might make you change your mind. And of course, you get an 8 MP front-facing camera for those perfect selfies. Finally, it packs in a 3100 mAh battery equipped with dynamic voltage scaling technology.
So, if you intend to buy something that’s more than just powerful and doesn’t make a hole in your pocket, then checking out the latest Flipkart offers is your best bet!
