LeTV Le 2 : Top 5 competitors need to know before buy

Chinese manufacturer LeTV (now LeEco) earlier this month launched latest phablet guns – the Le 2 and Le Max 2. These are the brand’s first smartphone to ditch the 3.5mm audio jack in favor of the company’s new CDLA (Continual Digital Lossless Audio) standard, which utilize the reversible USB Type-C port of the device to deliver audio. The Le 2 comes as a successor to the Le 1s, which was launched in India as the vendor’s debut device. The Le 2 will take place of the Le 1s when it lands in India in the coming weeks. It offers a few upgrades over its predecessor, but keeps the same sub-Rs 11,000 price range.
