After getting leaked a few times and revealing several specs, the Le 2 and Le 2 Pro from the Chinese brand that is aiming to go global are officially launched. At an event held in China, the Le 2 and Le 2 pro come with quite a lot of differences, giving an indication of how advanced the Pro variant is when compared to the standard one. Also, the Le Max gets a successor – the Le Max 2.
While launching the phones, LeEco talked about getting rid of the 3.5mm headset jack that offers analog audio. Digital audio is what LeEco is calling it for the new inclusion, and the audio standard is called CDLA (Continual Digital Lossless Audio). The audio will be sent through USB Type-C jack on the phones and the customized chip on the audio headset will give a lossless audio.
The smartphones have a bezel-less design, and they carry a new version of the fingerprint security for a faster recognition and unlocking.
