#LeEco has just released the #LePro3 smartphone in the U.S., thus making it the company’s first smartphone in the region. The handset will only cost $399 in the region plus there’s a $100 rebate that you can avail from the company’s site. So you’ll only end up paying about $299 for this high-end offering. The manufacturer has also unveiled the Le S3 with a price tag of $249, but it’s focused more on the mid-ranged market segment.
The Le Pro 3 comes with a bunch of neat features that will make it an attractive proposition for many out there. LeEco’s comprehensive content platform known as the EcoPass subscription will give you access to FanDor movies, two-years extended warranty on phones and several other perks.
The EcoPass subscription will be free for the first three months after the purchase of the Le Pro 3. There’s no word on how much the subscription will cost after the trial period ends.
The handset is packing a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 16-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera, the quad-core Snapdragon 821 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of non-expandable storage, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and a 4,070 mAh battery. The phone also comes with a fingerprint scanner and a USB Type-C port.
The handset will only be available in Gold initially, but a Gray version will be added soon. Initial orders will be fulfilled by November this year.
Chinese OEM #LeEco is planning a big Stateside release of its products on the 19th of October. But we didn’t quite know what to expect from the manufacturer during the course of the event. However, thanks to what appears to have been a website testing process, we are now getting a detailed look of what the company intends to release during the Oct 19 event. It seems like there will only be two smartphones on the agenda accompanied by four Android TV based televisions.
Here’s the complete lineup:
- Le Max2 smartphone (expected to cost $289 including the $60 discount)
- Le S3 smartphone (expected to cost $169 or $239 depending on the range of the discount)
- LeEco Super4 X43 Pro TV
- LeEco Super4 X55 TV
- LeEco Super4 X65 TV
- LeEco uMax85 TV
The pricing for the televisions appear to be mere placeholders for the time being, so there’s no concrete word on how much they will cost. But it goes without saying that it won’t go easy on the customers’ wallets. Despite the leak, it’s good to get an early idea of what the company has in store for the American customers. Do you think LeEco can make an impact on the American market? Sound off in the comments below.

Chinese manufacturer #LeEco has sent out invites for a June 29 event which could have the headlines buzzing again. If reports are to be believed, the company’s new Le Max 2 Pro flagship will feature a whopping 8GB of RAM on board, accompanied by the quad-core Snapdragon 821 SoC, which is expected to be the slightly overclocked version of the Snapdragon 820. So it seems like the company is looking towards an upgrade in all aspects.
This is not a surprise coming from a Chinese OEM as the region is synonymous with overpowered phones. As of now, the market is just beginning to accept 6GB of RAM on smartphones. But by fitting in 8GB of RAM, smartphones can be as powerful as most current-gen notebooks in terms of memory (at least on paper).
Of course, there’s the question of whether 8GB of RAM will be usable on a smartphone. But manufacturers are seldom worried about this. About until a year ago, 4GB was considered too much, so the growth has been quite rapid. What do you think?

Chinese manufacturer #LeEco is supposedly keen on entering the U.S. market. The company has now claimed that it plans to enter the American mobile industry by Fall this year. The arrival of popular Chinese OEMs on U.S. soil isn’t a new development with the likes of Huawei, ZTE and others already enjoying a decent presence in the region. LeEco is one of the most popular manufacturers in China as well as Asia, thanks to its combination of software, hardware and an attractive price tag. The company which was formerly known as LeTV specializes in cloud services and other content, which could give its devices a significant advantage over the competition in the U.S.
While the precise timeline of its arrival is not available, the company is said to be preparing for the launch by hiring marketing specialists to help with the transition. The company is known for its premium-looking smartphones with one of them even sporting 6GB of RAM, so there’s no dearth of quality flagship handsets from LeEco.
Would you welcome the arrival of a new Chinese OEM in the U.S.? Share your thoughts below.

Up until a few months ago, the tech world was buzzing for Qualcomm’s #Snapdragon820 silicon. Manufacturers have obliged accordingly, as there are a handful of smartphones in the market today running the new chipset. But this might soon be old news, with a slightly more powerful Snapdragon 823 all set to hit devices as well.
If a report is anything to go by, Chinese OEM LeEco could unveil a new smartphone running the said chip. The device will apparently be announced at the Mobile World Congress Shanghai which is scheduled to take place between June 29 to July 1.
LeEco is a vastly popular company in China and is known for its content distribution services. The company recently went through a makeover for its mobile wing, renaming itself LeEco (previously known as LeTV). So it shouldn’t be a surprise to many that a Snapdragon 823 based smartphone will be coming out of this particular manufacturer.
Speaking more about the Snapdragon 823, it will feature the same quad-core CPU architecture but with two 2.6 GHz cores and two 2.0 GHz cores respectively, while the Snapdragon 820 features a 2.15 GHz + 1.59 GHz combination. So it’s more about an increased clock speed than a revamped chipset architecture, so current device owners don’t have much to be disappointed about.
