The Le Max 2 is redefining music on phones, with battery performance to complement it
June 20 2016: While 2014 saw brands falling over themselves trying to create the thinnest possible smart phone, 2015 saw the emergence of the fingerprint scanner as a flagship feature, which was followed by beefed up camera specs and innovations in touch screen capabilities. While 2016 has so far been the year of battery-optimized phones, and large screen 'flagships', Le Eco, comes along and adds a whole new dimension to the future of smart phones -- enhancing the audio by getting rid of the 3.5mm headphone slot and putting the USB Type C port on double duty -- to charge as well as plug in the headphones.
Le Eco has created a standard for audio called CDLA -- Continual Digital Lossless Audio. The Le Max 2 is the first device to come with CDLA in-built. The sound enhancement features are not built into the device, but the headphone via a custom chip and decoder.
The Le Max 2 comes with the latest Snapdragon 820 processor, with a 5.7 inches screen. With a 21 MP rear and 8 MP front camera, it is available in two variants of 4GB RAM + 32 GB memory (Rs. 22,999) and a 6 GB RAM and 64 GB memory (Rs. 29,000). These heavy specs are powered by just a 3100 mAh battery. Le Eco has incorporated a proprietary SuperCharge technology that gives you 2.5 hours of talk time on a 5 minute charge. The new range of Le Eco devices can charge from 5V, 9V as well as 12V chargers.
The Le Max 2 comes come bundled with premium content: one-year membership to the Supertainment Programme that provides access to over 2000 Bollywood and regional movies, 3000+ hours of TV shows and 150 live channels.
The Le Max 2 is on sale at Flipkart from June 2. . If music is on your mind, the Le Max 2 is a device that will sing its way into your life. We suspect this device is all set to bully other smartphone brands with just its specs and superior sound capabilities. A gangster of a phone, indeed. - Vishnu Anand
