After the great success of the LeEco Le 1s, comes the LeEco Le 2 – the next generation phone is now available in India, with a standard combination of 3GB RAM and 32GB Internal Storage. The Le 2 is step forward from its predecessor – powered by an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor which is much faster. The Le 2 also brings high-quality digital lossless audio experience (CDLA) via USB Type-C which gives you crystal clear sound output!
LeEco’s Le 2 is the first smartphone in the world to come without a 3.5 mm audio port. Rather than being a loss, this is a step towards the future. LeEco has tweaked its USB Type-C port, which can now be used as an audio port as well. LeEco is offering CDLA earphones worth Rs. 1,990 for free along with purchases in the flash sale!
The Le 2 has an In-Cell display which is usually featured in high-end smartphones. The screen’s blue light filter helps reduce eye fatigue, while at the same time, allows devices to be thinner and lighter.

LeEco Le 2 HandsOn
LeEco Le2 Unboxing
Build Quality and Design
Coming to the build quality of the Le 2, it comes with all-metal construction that feels premium and classy in the hand. It has a 5.5-inch Full HD display panel with sharp and vivid colors.
At the bottom is the USB Type-C port, which serves multiple functions. You can charge your phone as well as output audio though LeEco’s Continual Digital Lossless Audio earphones. The audio experience while using the CDLA earphones is first class!
On the left, you get a Dual SIM slot which is not a Hybrid SIM slot – this can be a negative point. It comes with 32GB on internal memory that should be enough for most users.
At the top of the phone, you see an IR Blaster to control your TV, AC, Setup box etc. As expected, it does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack anywhere.
Finally, on the right, you have the volume up/down and power buttons – they are solidly built, with good ‘press’ and great haptic feedback.
Display & Performance
The LeEco Le 2 comes with an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, coupled with 3GB of RAM and Adreno 510 GPU. So, performance is not a concern at all – everything zips along with zero lag! It supports all 4G bands in India and the VoLTE feature will be enabled soon through an OTA update.
The Le 2 comes with a 16MP rear camera and 8MP front camera. This time around, image quality is visibly better with vibrant and true-to-life colors. With features such as PDA, HDR and dual-LED flash, clicking good photos is very easy, even if you are moving or if there is not enough lighting. Even the quality of front facing camera is better when compared to its predecessor.
The Le 2 also supports 4K video recording at 30 Frames per Second in 16:9 screen ratio. LeEco’s camera app is simple and intuitive.
Out of the box, the Le 2 comes with Android 6 Marshmallow with eUI 5.6 on it. We’re still playing with it, so full details and a list of new features will soon show up here!

Pixel Density (PPI) is refers to the concentration of pixels on a particular display, measured in pixels per inch (ppi). Pixel density is calculated by dividing the diagonal pixel resolution of a display by its diagonal size, higher pixel density better display quality. 403 PPI
Display Protection => Gorilla Glass is a special alkali-aluminosilicate glass shield with exceptional damage resistance that helps protect mobile displays from scratches, drops, and bumps of everyday use, It is always better to go for a smartphone with Gorilla Glass for that added protection and peace of mind. Gorilla Glass 3
Chipset is a group of integrated circuits designed to perform one or a more dedicated functions, often with real time computing constraints, Popular smartphones are equipped with more advanced embedded chipsets that can do many different tasks depending on their programming. 1.8 GHz + Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 MSM8976, Octa Core
CPU (Central Processing Unit) mostly known as processors, CPU processes instructions in order to carry out certain functions that make your device operate properly. Processors are often described as the brain of computers, smartphones and tablets, Smartphones and tablets rely on processors to carry out their every task, Processors are an incredibly important factor in selecting any type of computing device, including your smartphone. Dual core, 2.3 GHz, Cortex A72 + Quad core, , Cortex A53
GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is a single-chip processor designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display, This includes things such as lighting effects, object transformations, and 3D motion. Mali-T880 MP4 GPU
RAM (Random Access Memory) is a type of computer memory that can be accessed randomly, any byte of memory can be accessed without touching the preceding bytes that allows information to be stored and accessed quickly from random locations. RAM is the most common type of memory found in computer systems, smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices. 3 GB RAM
Internal Storage is a data storage space (flash memory) mostly used in smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices where operating system, apps, music, photos, videos, files and other user data Is stored. 32GB GB
Memory Card Slot is a special slot for inserting a memory card. Memory cards allow you to expand the phone's built-in memory, A memory card (sometimes called a flash memory card or a storage card) is a small storage medium used to store data such as text, pictures, audio, and video, for use on small, portable or remote computing devices such as mobile phones, mp3 players, digital cameras.
