LeEco's insane Le Max 2 debuts in India for just ₹22,999; Le 2 launches for ₹11,999

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.

Unveiled in China earlier this year, the phones have the distinction of being the first in the world to ditch the 3.5mm audio jack in favor of USB-C audio. The hardware on offer with the phones is intriguing to say the least, so here's a look at what's on offer with LeEco's latest.

  • Great phones with superbbbb price..... SD 652 for just $200 (around) that's phenomenal Posted via the Android Central App
  • Just 2 caveats: No memory expansion and NO 3.5 MM JACK!!!! Who does that! :'(
  • LeEco. That's who. Posted via the Android Central App
  • That's going to be a dealbreaker for most, including me. I have a lot of audio gear that runs off of a 3.5mm jack, and I have no intention of getting new hardware just so it works over USB-C.
  • Well, there's a USB Type-C to 3.5 mm Analog Adapter in the box with each phone. :)
  • Wow it's a sure buy for me ditching Windows phone now :( Posted by a Lumia Lover.
  • Making One plus 3 a run for its money... :p Posted via the Android Central App
  • LeEco just opened their US Headquarters in Silicon Valley. I wonder why they aren't releasing their phones in the States? No carrier support?
  • They said that they'll launch one phone in the U.S. this year.
