LeEco is a tech giant in China, but this company has been selling smartphones for only a year and a half. The company had introduced three smartphones back in April 2015, and those were their first units. There are quite a few LeEco-branded smartphones out there now, and the company is planning to introduce yet another one soon it seems. The LeEco Pro 3 has been mentioned several times thus far, and if rumors are to be believed, this smartphone will be fueled by the Snapdragon 821 64-bit quad-core SoC, the latest flagship chip Qualcomm had released. That being said, some new LeEco Pro 3 info surfaced, read on.
According to the new info, the LeEco Pro 3 is expected to ship with a 5,000mAh battery, and will be only 7mm thin. A phone with such a large battery pack to be so thin, sounds impossible, right? Well, it seems quite improbable, yes, but anything is possible at this point. In order to pull this off, LeEco will have to do wonders in terms of the design, phones with 5,000mAh batteries are usually well over 8mm thick, so it will be interesting to see what is LeEco planning to do with the Pro 3. Now, the company is, allegedly, also planning to include some new software in the LeEco Pro 3, some video-related software, as well as some software for better social integration. Now, on top of the 5,000mAh battery and the Snapdragon 821 SoC, this smartphone is expected to ship with 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera. The 8-megapixel snapper will probably be located up front, and you can expect this smartphone to be made out of metal.
LeEco is expected to introduce this smartphone before the end of September, and it will be interesting if this handset will manage to become the first Snapdragon 821-powered smartphone out there. Xiaomi’s Mi Note 2 is also expected to ship with the Snapdragon 821, and if reports are accurate, that phablet will arrive on September 14th. In any case, stay tuned, we’ll report back as soon as more info becomes available.
