Are you ready for the future? Chinese holding company LeEco is totally ready for the future. It unveiled its first electric car today, the LeSEE, which it hopes will become fully autonomous. The company also unveiled three — yes THREE — new smartphones today, all of which come with a radical change to the beloved headphone jack. LeEco's Le 2, Le 2 Pro, and Le Max 2 all come jack-less and instead only allow for USB Type-C digital headphones. Oh, you don't have USB-C headphones, you say? LeEco just released two pairs of those, too! I told you, totally prepared for the future. The Le 2 and Le 2 Pro are mid-tier phones, based on MediaTek's deca-core processor, but the Le Max 2 does come with 6GB of RAM, which is decidedly futuristic.

Here's the whole spec sheet for the Le Max 2:

  • 5.7-inch QHD screen
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset
  • Ultrasonic fingerprint scanner
  • 3,100mAh battery
  • Quick charge 3.0 support
  • 64GB of internal storage
  • 6GB of RAM
  • 8-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 21-megapixel main camera (with optical image stabilization)

This is the reversible USB plug of your future
