At an event in China, LeEco has launched not one, but three new smartphones. Called Le 2, Le 2 Pro and Le Max 2, all three smartphones come with metal unibody design, thin bezels on the front and a fingerprint scanner for added security. One of the talking points of these smartphones is the USB Type-C Audio port. While there have been leaked reports that Apple iPhone 7 would skip the 3.5mm audio port, LeEco has already done this with its new smartphones. LeEco also announced that these smartphones will feature CDLA (Continual Digital Loseless Audio) technology to offer high-quality uncompressed audio.
