LeEco Le Max 2, Le 2 and Le 2 Pro go official with up to 6GB RAM, no headphone jacks
The age of 6GB RAM monster phones is already upon us, ladies and gentlemen, and oddly enough, one of China’s most rapidly rising mobile hardware makers also rushes to beat Apple to the no-headphone jack punch.
Pretty controversial moves from LeEco, previously known as LeTV, especially since its latest trio of relatively inexpensive high-end handhelds probably had plenty of room for both a newfangled USB Type-C port and traditional audio connector. Oh, well, at least the Le Max 2, Le 2 and Le 2 Pro each come with a couple of proprietary USB-C earpieces as standard.
On the memory side, you can “settle” for 3 gigs of the good stuff on the “entry-level” LeEco Le 2, bump that up to 4 with the Le 2 Pro, or embrace the future of Android multitasking by picking up the 6GB RAM-packing Le Max 2.
The LeEco Le Max 2 is a state-of-the-art slab through and through, of course, with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display also in tow, Snapdragon 820 processor, “ultrasonic” fingerprint scanner fitted on its beautiful rear, a 21MP main camera with optical image stabilization, 8MP selfie shooter, 3,100 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support, and up to 64GB internal storage space.
But the Le 2 and Le 2 Pro aren’t pushovers either, all three looking amazing on the outside, if a little similar to HTC flagships, and the two lower-end models hauling respectable 5.5-inch Full HD screens, 3,000 mAh cells, as well as slightly slower fingerprint readers, and 8MP front-facing cams.
How will you be able to tell the 5.5-inchers apart? Well, the Le 2 Pro features a 21MP rear snapper and Helio X25 SoC, as opposed to the non-Pro Le 2’s “humbler” 16 megapixel main cam and X20 chip. Pricing and availability remain under wraps, but Le Eco plans to deliver on its promise of eventually bringing one of these bad boys to the US in addition to China. Which do you want it to be? All of them, ideally?
