Le Max2 by LeEco – Big, Bold and a Sheer Powerhouse

NEW DELHI, August 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —

The smartphone market in India is a veritable treasure store of phones in every color, specification and price point that users can possibly think of. Gone are the days when technology giants introduced one flagship a year. 2016 has witnessed several new flagship phones by various brands and some of them have really challenged the status quo in the industry with their unbeatable specifications and industry first offerings.

One of the most talked about phones of 2016 is LeEco’s second generation Superphone, Le Max2 that has made consumers smile and competitors nervous since its launch. Designed to impress with sheer power, speed, and multimedia experience, let’s find out if Le Max2 has the tools in its armory to take on its rivals which include the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy S7, iPhone 6s Plus and HTC 10.

Powerful processor and storage: Incorporating powerful processors in smartphones are in response to the rapidly changing lifestyles and higher user aspirations. At the heart of Le Max2 is Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 820 (MSM8996) and features the high performance combination of 4GB RAM + 32GB on board memory or 6GB RAM + 64GB on board memory, pushing the limits of the industry to new heights.

Worlds first CDLA Technology: In Le Max2, LeEco has ditched the 3.5mm audio jack, and has instead opted to provide audio over a USB Type-C port which is a future proof technology that brands offer selectively in their high end devices. This port is not only used for charging or data transfer, but also as an audio port. Superphone Le Max2 offers users an unmatched audio experience through the pioneering Continual Digital Lossless Audio (CDLA) technology, patented by LeEco, which enables users to experience premium digital lossless audio. Undoubtedly this makes Le Max2 outshine all smartphones available in the market.

Design and Build: Equipped with a 5.7-inch display running at a resolution of 2K (i.e 2560×1440 pixels), Le Max2 is a cut above its peers. It eases all our concerns and worries of watching better videos on a mobile screen. On the other hand, Samsung S7 comes with a 5.1″ display, iPhone 6s Plus with a 5.5″ display and HTC 10 settles with a 5.2″ display. We’ve viewed videos on all these smartphones both indoor and outdoor and feel Le Max2 is a clear winner here given its impressive display screen and display quality that is unmatched.

Camera: Le Max2 takes the camera experience on smartphones to a whole new level. It has a 21MP primary camera which features OIS for blur-free photos and advanced PDAF technology for ultra-fast focusing alongside a Dual-LED (Dual Tone) flash. It also carries an 8MP front camera that we loved. While Samsung S7, iPhone 6s Plus and HTC 10, all settle with a 12MP rear a 5MP front camera that might leave users disappointed given the humongous amount they will shell out for buying these phones.

Price: All of this comes at what can only be considered to be a surprisingly affordable price for the 4GB RAM and 32GB storage edition, and the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage edition. This is surely a treat for users because Le Max2’s peers cost almost twice as much – Samsung Galaxy S7, iPhone 6s and HTC 10.

Also, what makes Le Max2 unique is the content membership that comes bundled with it. This is something that no other smartphone flaunts and is a proposition that will win over many users. The Superphone comes pre-bundled with one year LeEco Membership. This gives users access more than 1.9 million songs with lossless audio, 50+ Big Ticket International Live Concerts, exclusive Live Streaming of Major Entertainment Events & Music Concerts Worldwide along with 7500+ hours of world class entertainment, among other benefits. This makes Le Max2 an ideal partner for people who are fond of watching movies, TV shows or listening to songs on-the-go.

Backed by supreme specs, sublime aesthetics at a disruptive price point, along with pioneering the futuristic CDLA technology, Le Max2 has an ultimate edge against its peers.

Funding from governments and several private organizations is adding the pace for the deployment of 5G technology

A significant amount of funding have been provided by the public and private organizations, and established research projects have been undertaken for the development and promotion of 5G technology in European Union (EU) and APAC. The EU has invested heavily in R&D to ensure that Europe takes the leading role in deploying the new-generation mobile broadband technology. For example, 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (5G PPP) has been initiated by the EU Commission and industry manufacturers, telecommunications operators, service providers, SMEs, and researchers. In addition, several countries in APAC such as China, Japan, and South Korea have stated to taking up developmental projects to establish regional and/or national leadership positions in wireless R&D related to the 5G technology.

LTE would be the dominant technology by 2022

On a global scale, GSM/EDGE would continue to lead, in terms of subscription numbers, till 2017. This is because new and less affluent users entering the networks in growing markets are likely to use low-cost mobile phones and subscriptions available. Currently, the number of subscriptions in GSM/EDGE represents the largest share; but by 2021, both LTE and WCDMA/HSPA mobile subscription numbers are expected to be more than double of GSM/EDGE subscriptions. In technologically advanced markets such as the U.S. and Japan, there already has been a substantial shift toward more advanced technologies which has resulted in a slight decline in GSM/EDGE subscriptions. However, in developing markets such as India EDGE/GSM remains a viable option as less affluent users are likely to choose low-cost mobile phones and subscriptions.
