LeEco takes another jab at Apple; this time the AirPods are under attack

LeEco is manufacturing some of the most highly spec'd Android models. Next week, the LeEco Le Pro 3 is expected to be unveiled (September 21st to be precise), and the premium version of the phablet could contain 8 GB of RAM and feature the Snapdragon 821 SoC under the hood. With a 5000mAh battery powering the unit, LeEco took a shot at the battery on the latest iPhone models the other day, with a teaser depicting a falling cell squashing the Apple logo.

Today, LeEco is taking a jab at Apple's wireless AirPods. In a new teaser, the company is trying to show that the AirPods are second to its own Continual Digital Lossless Audio (CDLA). The latter is technology found on earphones and headphones used with the Type-C port, and hints that the LeEco Le Pro 3 might not ship with a 3.5mm headphone jack. The teaser also confirms the September 21st event during which the Le Pro 3 will be introduced.

The 'attack' is actually mild by LeEco standards. Last year, the company compared Apple to Hitler in a teaser attacking Apple's "walled garden."

Surely airpods are nice piece of technology but it has nothing new but removing 3.5mm audio jack isn't a good decision. Oh if you are thinking that I'm trolling apple then you are wrong.they should have kept 3.5mm jack for those who want and lighting headsets and airpods for those who thinks like apple do.

LeEco is just a f**king company which cannot outsell their stupid smartphones compare to Apple. They are jealous on what Apple can do.

Lol, look at this sheep mentality. Whenever a company attack their herd master, they will bring up sales to compare them instead of discussing on the real topic. LeEco is right on this one.

LeEco actually makes great devices. It's not about jealousy, but competition. So, pointing out where you one-up your competitor is logical.

The only trend Apple started that a company actually copied was exploding smartphones! Apple can only do it right... Their phones explode in the same number as that of a note 7 but it's yearly... So no one cares...

Because any brand of Li-ion powered phone can explode under certain circumstances - the difference is that the Note 7 had a design flaw that caused it. So people did care.

Of course they are following Apple, that is exactly what they are saying in their ad. Tell me why do all these Ad Droid makers always attack Apple in their ads? I never see Apple say anything about Ad Droid in their ads.......

looks like it worked. look how much they are being talked about and the attention they are going to get now only days before a new release. good or bad attention still gets the name and message out. regardless of how distasteful the ad was or how small they are. most people on here will take interest for the new release and talk about them and spread the word. probably end up selling let's of product because of it. good job and cheap advertising. i know my S7 is looking old right about now.
