At a media event in New Delhi, Chinese handset maker LeEco launched its latest phones in the Indian market. The vendor debuted the flagship Le Max 2, with the Le 2 aimed at the budget segment. The Le Max 2 will be available for an aggressive ₹22,999 for the model with 4GB of RAM and 32GB storage, with the variant offering 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage retailing for ₹29,999. The Le 2 is set to retail for ₹11,999 in the country. That's including a year's worth of LeEco's content services. The Le Max 2 will go on sale starting June 26.
