LeEco had made it clear that it will be debuting in the U.S. market this week. Well, it happened and at the event, the company also promised that the flagship Le Pro 3 will be coming to the U.S., just like we had speculated earlier.
The phone, carrying all the hardware specs and features you expect to find in a Samsung, LG, Google, HTC or Sony flagship, is priced at a reasonable price of just $399. The last time a flagship smartphone was released with a mid-range price tag was back with the OnePlus 3, which shared the same hardware specs with the likes of Galaxy S7, HTC 10 and LG G5, but was also priced at $399.
The LeEco Le Pro 3 was unveiled back in September, but it will now make its way to the U.S. for those willing to buy the phone with no need for paying for extra importation charges.
Just to make you familiar with the LeEco Le Pro 3, the flagship carries a 5.5-inch Full HD screen, which is the same quality you find on the like of OnePlus 3 and iPhone 7 Plus, among others. Under the hood, the Le Pro 3 packs the latest Snapdragon 821 SoC alongside a RAM of 4GB. There is 64GB of internal storage, which should be enough for most people out there.
Despite its price tag, LeEco managed to add a fast-enough fingerprint scanner as well as a decent 16MP snapper on the back. Among the many flagship handsets out there, you will enjoy the monster battery unit of 4070mAh used on the Le Pro 3 – something that should be a major selling point for the phone. According to the Chinese OEM, the huge battery will be able to charge from 0-33% in just 20 minutes.
Like the iPhone 7 Plus, you don’t get a 3.5mm headphone jack on the LeEco Le Pro 3. Instead, there is a USB-C port that also doubles as a charging and data transfer port. While the release of the phone in the U.S. is confirmed, it will not be available until November 2nd. If you happen to sign up for the LeEco LeRewards Program, you end up paying just $299 for the same Le Pro 3 flagship.
