Le Eco probably taking cue from apple decided to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack for its le 2 and the audio is be routed through the USB Type-C port. The phone will come with a USB Type C to 3.5mm adapter so fret not, you will be able to use your 3.5mm earphones with the phone. This port can be used for charging, data transfer and listening to audio. The move may not go down well if the type C headphones come out to be more expensive than its audio jack counterparts and no one likes to carry around an extra adapter.
