Chinese handset maker, LeEcolaunchedthe LeEco Le Pro 3 in China last year and now the company has launched a new edition of Le Pro 3 named as LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite Edition. The LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite Edition is priced at 1699 Yuan (approx. Rs 16,404). It is already available for purchase online via Jingdong, LeEco Mall, Lynx. Looking at the specs, the new smartphone seems to a toned down version of the LeEco Le Pro 3.
For the specs, LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite Edition is powered by Snapdragon 820 SoC instead of Snapdragon 821 which we saw on the Le Pro 3. Also, the LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite Edition lack the NFC feature. The Elite version also comes with only 4GB RAM option. Apart from this, rest of the specifications are identical to the original Le Pro 3.
The device has a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) IPS display with 2.5D curved glass display and features unibody metal design and comes with a fingerprint sensor that is located on its back panel. The device lacks the expandable storage option. In the camera department, the smartphone comes with a 16-megapixel rear camera with dual tone LED flash, Sony IMX298 sensor, PDAF, f/2.0 aperture. For selfies, it comes with an 8-megapixel front camera with 1.4um pixel size, f/2.2 aperture, 76.5-degree wide-angle lens. The LeEco Le Pro 3 comes with 3GB RAM and 32 GB inbuilt storage. Based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Elite version also comes with EUI 5.8 on top and a 4070 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 technology which is said to offer 3 hours of talk time with just 5 minutes of charging using 24W fast charger. For connectivity the LeEco Le Pro 3 dual SIM offers 4G with VoLTE, WiFi, GPS/AGPS + GLONASS, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, and USB Type C.
We are not sure if this device will make it to the Indian market and given the recent layoff the chances are pretty bleak. If you are not aware, LeEcohas fired 85 per cent of its Indian staff and soon it might exit the Indian smartphone market. Check out the full story here
