This week saw the LeEco Le Pro 3 make its bow in the smartphone world but only happened in its home country of China.
A phone that is expected to see huge success following the early flash sales it has already recorded, it is possible that the Le Pro 3 may be coming to the U.S. alongside the official debut of the company on October 19. Yes, you heard it right! LeEco will be making its debut in the U.S. this month, but there is no official confirmation of the devices that will be unveiled on this very day.
Given that the LeEco Le Pro 3 is actually the latest handset to come from the company and it has attracted so many potential buyers, it is possible that the company could bring it to the U.S. The event will be held in San Francisco, California and it will see the company debut several other products other than smartphones, among them televisions, VR headset and many other products.
This will be a dream come true for a company that was launched about 12 years ago, but it has mainly been selling in China and some other parts of Asia. In the past, it was known as LeTV, but it rebranded to LeEco, something that has since then brought so many success stories.
The phone that could be coming to the U.S. – LeEco Le Pro 3 – was launched this week and even though it carries flagship specs and design, the price means that it falls in the midrange category. Priced at just $269, the phone is actually the cheapest to come with the latest hardware specs this year. There is a 5.5-inch Full HD screen with 1080p resolution. Under the hood, the phone comes with a Snapdragon 821 SoC, but the memory options available mean that you get the phone in two variants.
The base model has a RAM of 4GB and 32GB of internal storage. On the other hand, the high-end model carries 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Unlike the base model which costs about $269, the high-end model comes in at just $302, which is still a bargain for such a high-end phone. You still get a decent battery unit of 4070mAh alongside a 16MP main snapper and 8MP selfie camera, but there is no OIS on the lens.
Still, you get other extras such as fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C, Quick Charge 3.0, Wi-Fi, as well as 4G LTE connectivity. However, keep in mind that there is no traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, instead, the LeEco Le Pro 3 relies on the same USB Type-C port for audio connectivity. The Le Pro 3 is powered by Android Marshmallow out of the box.
