Today at their event in San Francisco, LeEco announced a couple of different smartphones that they plan to launch in the US in the near future, which includes the more mid-range focused Le S3, and the Le Pro3, a device which is aimed more squarely at the high-end market, all without charging a massive price tag. The Le Pro3 is packed with powerful specifications and hardware and will be going up for pre-order soon, and those who pre-order the device will for a limited time, receive an instant rebate discount off of the phone's original retail cost, bringing it down from $399 to $299.
While the phone was showed off during the actual announcement, now that the event is over we were able to get some hands-on time with the Le Pro3 and check out its build as well as the features and specs which were highlighted after its reveal. This includes the presence of a 5.5-inch Full HD display, not unlike the Le S3, but it comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor on the inside, paired with an Adreno 530 GPU for the graphics processing to help it provide performance for games, as well as great productivity power with its ability to multi-task without getting bogged down thanks to the inclusion of 4GB of RAM.
The Le Pro3 also comes with 64GB of internal storage space, meaning it should have no problem holding all the games, apps, music, videos, and photos that most users will need space for. Speaking of pictures, the Le Pro3 packs a 16MP rear-mounted main camera with an f/2.0 aperture as well as OIS and phase detection autofocus, and an 8MP front-mounted camera with an f/2.2 aperture for better selfies and video chat in lower light. The phone comes in two available colors which are Gold and Grey, and it comes running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, with LeEco's eUI version 5.6 layered on top of the Android software. It utilizses USB Type-C for the charging and data transfer ports, but it also uses this port for plugging in headphones, not too unlike some other flagships this year. Keeping this device going throughout the day is a 4,070mAh battery which also supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 charging standard, which means little wait time for a full battery.
