LeEco’s latest phones ditch the headphone jack for USB Type-C audio

LeEco has unveiled three new handsets in China today, the Le 2, Le 2 Pro and Le Max 2. The phones are the first to eschew the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of USB Type-C audio, with LeEco rolling out two USB-C headphones to go with the handsets.


The Le Max 2 is the flagship offering with a 5.7-inch QHD display, 2.1Ghz Snapdragon 820 SoC, an astounding 6GB of RAM, 64GB internal memory, ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, Category 12 LTE, and a 3100mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0.

The Le 2 and Le 2 Pro are aimed at the budget segment, but still manage to bring serious specs to the table. Both offer 5.5-inch Full HD displays, 32GB storage, 8MP front cameras and 3000mAh batteries. The standard Le 2 is powered by the 10-core MediaTek Helio X20 SoC, while the Le 2 Pro features the faster Helio X25, which also has a 10-core CPU consisting of two Cortex A72 cores and two variations of quad-core Cortex A53 CPUs.


The Le 2 has 3GB of RAM while the Le 2 Pro offers 4GB. On the camera front, the Le 2 features a 16MP shooter, with the Le 2 Pro offering a 21MP camera based on Sony’s IMX230 sensor.

No retail pricing or availability, but LeEco intends to bring at least one model to the U.S.
