Chinese handset maker, LeEco today launched Le 2 and Le Max 2 smartphones in India. The Le Max 2 comes in 4 GB and 6 GB RAM models which are priced at Rs 22,999 and Rs 29,999 respectively. The Le 2 has a price tag of just Rs 11,999.
LeEco, which yesterday forayed into offline space, today announced the launch of its own webstore called Lemall.com. At the time of writing, it was not live. Meanwhile, LeEco announced that the Le Max 2 will be available on Flipkart and Lemall from June 29 but it will reveal Le 2’s availability to later. Registrations for the phones will start from June 20.
