Last week, LeEco released 3 smartphones of which Le 2 Pro is just one of the trio of phones. We first looked at the flagship Le Max 2, which at 6GB of RAM and 5.7” display is clearly an outstanding flagship device sold at a very modest price.
Yesterday, the first flash sales of the three new phones took place in China. And reports indicate that over one million pieces of the phones were sold in just two hours. You can ascribe that to the initial rush for a new device if you wish, but the figure is still impressive anyhow you look at it. After all, we are talking of a phone brand that is far from becoming a household name.
Like the Le Max 2, the Le 2 Pro is also a unibody phone without the 3.5mm headphone jack. So listening to music is via the USB Type-C audio connector. But the Le 2 Pro is slightly smaller in terms of display size though. It stands at an impressive 5.5″ with a display resolution of 1080×1920 pixels.
The 4G, LTE supported smartphone is also based on the Android 6.0, Marshmallow operating system with a MediaTek Helio X25 chipset under the hood. The CPU is arranged in three separate but interconnected clusters of 2.5 GHz dual-core Cortex-A72; 2GHz quad-core Cortex-A52; and 1.4 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53, making the Le 2 Pro a deca-core smartphone. The chipset supports a RAM of 4GB and an internal storage of 32GB.
The camera specs too are up there with the best. The rear camera is equipped with a 21MP lens with an LED flash and phase detection autofocus. For selfie-lovers, an adequate 8MP camera capable of taking 1080P videos is provided. The battery capacity of the Le 2 Pro is just slightly lower than the Le Max 2. But at 3000mAh, it is still as good as what you get in most flagship smartphones launched this year.
The question now is, if you are given $230, would you buy this phone? Because, that is about the cost of the device. But, the cost might vary depending on what part of the world you are.
