According to Mediatek, the improvements are more noticeable on Multitasking rather than Single task workload. Furthermore, the phone will also offer 3 GB RAM and 32 GB eMMC Storage out of the box. It will also run EUI 5.6, which is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. A side note from LeTV, the newer EUI 5.8 version will be available this June 2016.

The phone is said to offer the very first CDLA enabled headphone port (USB Type C), which is said to boost overall audio quality and performance.

On paper, a real contender for the best value Smartphone of 2016

At a glance, the specs shown by the LeTV LeEco Le 2 X620 are quite impressive. LeTV has been known to make premium quality Smartphones, and I think the Le 2 will follow suit. It’s also no surprise that they splurge out on Technical features but still remain on a very agreeable price tag. As of this moment Helio X20 or Deca Core phones are not that many. It would be interesting too see the improvements over the last generation as well as how the Le 2 stack against other more expensive Flagship devices.
