LeEco has been quite silent over the past few months as far as the smartphone market is concerned, but the Chinese OEM has finally broken its silence by announcing a new LeEco Le Pro 2 Elite Edition in China.
One thing that Chinese OEMs, are good at is mixing affordable prices with high-end hardware specs and features. Well, LeEco is no different as we can see from the latest release. Apparently, those who wish to get their hands on the LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite Edition will only need to part with CNY 1699, which is about $245.
This is a very affordable price tag and looking at the specs on the Le Pro 3 Elite Edition, it makes the deal even better. The phone ships with a 2.5D curved 5.5-inch screen with a 1080p resolution. Under the hood, the device packs some impressive specs, including the 2016 high-end processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, paired with a RAM of 4GB. The storage capacity stays at 32GB, but you can expand it via a microSD card slot.
In terms of cameras, the LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite Edition ships with a great 16MP shooter on the back while the front has an 8MP selfie shooter. Software-wise, there is Android Marshmallow out of the box alongside the EUI 5.8 skin on top. To keep the phone alive is a monstrous 4070mAh battery unit that is supported by Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology. You also get a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner on the phone.
To grab yourself a copy of the LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite Edition, head to the official LeEco Mall, Jingdong or Lynx. The company has also thrown in an amazing deal where those who buy this phone will also get 3 months of free video streaming from the company’s service.
For comparison purposes, this same price tag of CNY 1699 can also get you a Nokia 6 in China, a phone that is way below the LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite Edition in everything apart from software, where the former has Android 7.0 Nougat running the show. On the other hand, a Samsung Galaxy S7 handset that packs the same hardware specs will set you back about $700, which is about three times the price of the flagship LeEco phone.
