The phone runs Android 6.0 with the company’s EUI 5.8 skin. Just like previous LeEco devices, it does not come with a 3.5mm audio jack, and it’s also missing micro SD card support. There four memory and storage configurations with the two other models with 4GB/64GB and 6GB/64GB selling for respectively 1,999 CNY ($300) and 2,499 CNY ($375). The two more expensive models ($375 and $540) are “Zhang Zimou Editions”, but apart from featuring the name of a famous Chinese filmmaker, I could not find which features they add specifically (if any).
