LeEco (LeTV) hasn’t released a new phone in over a year due to the financial mess that resulted in the company’s mobile arm “packing up business”. However, it appears the mobile phone business hasn’t shut down completely as LeEco has released a new version of its Emotion UI (EUI) for some of its smartphones.
Since the financial brouhaha in 2016, LeEco has not stopped pushing out updates to some of its phones including its 2016 flagship -the Le Max 2 and the mid-range Le 2. The latest update started hitting devices on the 8th of August and comes as EUI 6.0.
The update is available to the aforementioned phones including some other unmentioned models. One of the main features the update brings to these devices is face unlock, a feature that became mainstream starting last year. The update is also said to optimize system performance for an overall smoother experience. Sadly, there is no info as to if the new update also comes with a new version of Android.
The Le Max 2 is a Snapdragon 820-powered smartphone with a 5.7” QHD display. It has up to 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. It also has a single 21MP rear camera and an 8MP front-facing camera. It doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio jack but there is a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter shipped with the phone. Underneath is its metal body is a 3100mAh battery.
