LeEco has unveiled a new smartphone today, the LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite model. The company hasn’t been doing that well lately, with financial troubles to worry about, but here they are with a new phone, still. The device is basically a version of the LeEco Le Pro 3.
In spite of the “Elite” naming, it’s actually a “lite” version of the device. The Snapdragon 821 CPU of the last year model has been replaced with a Snapdragon 820 and NFC connectivity is also lacking from the specs list. The other features include a 5.5 inch Full HD screen, a 16 megapixel back camera and 4 GB of RAM, as well as 32 GB of storage.
There’s a beefy 4070 mAh battery inside and LeEco bundles 3 months of free subscription to its own video streaming service. Priced at $246, this handset is already available online via LeEco Mall, plus Jingdong and Lynx. This price tag is a $30 cut from the Le Pro 3, which isn’t bad. We also get a 2.5D glass panel upfront and a metal body here, if you’re wondering about the design.
There’s a fingerprint scanner at the back and Android Marshmallow probably still remains the OS.
