LeEco Pro 3 launched – full specifications

leeco pro 3

LeEco have announced their new flagship phone and with it there is good news and bad news.

If you had been following the LeEco rumours then you might have been excited by the idea it would come with a huge 8GB RAM. If the prospect of all that RAM got you excited then I’m afraid we have some bad news for you.

Today at the launch of the new phone it was revealed that there will be 2 versions of the phone, one with 4GB RAM and the other with 6GB RAM. There isn’t an 8GB RAM version on the cards.

Still the LeEco Pro 3 does have the sort of high-end hardware that we expected to see plus pricing is decent too.

Of all the features, the Snapdragon 821 chipset is the item that is going to draw most attention. The chipset runs at 2.35Ghz and powers both variants of the new smartphone. Another stand-out feature is the rear 16 mega-pixel Sony IMX298 camera with F2.0 aperture and PDAF.

    Wow … now this is the smartphone I have been waiting for. One question though…
    Does it have a standard earphone jack? Or do we have to depend on the USB C for earphone?

    I am more interested in the one with 64GB or 128GB internal memory.

      USB C. 6/64GB is only 1999RMB, 6/128 is 2999 due to extra software features and special theme/case

      • September 21, 2016

        I’d rather go for the 6GB/64GB model. Not going to pay an extra 1000 for the extra 64GB. Thats crazy… I think I can go with the lack of earphone jack.

        Which features? Does any one know about Daylight support? Even though I have no idea if it’s going to be useful or cool, I want it lol

    I don’t like design, lack of headphone jack and fucking eui! Shortly, no, thanks!

    “The rest of the specs are equal to other smartphones we’ve seen launch over the past few months”

    Now, tell me which 5.5″ flagship has had a ~4100mah battery this year (or, perhaps, ever). That’s the real deal, not the highly useless 8gb of ram!

    Also, pricing starting at 1799 yuan is awesome to see for a phone with those specs!
    Too bad for them they didn’t manage to insert more led flashes instead of all of the other specs, I’ve heard this year you can charge like 100 extra yuan per led (or so said someone who put 10 leds on a phone, can’t remember his name) ?

    Still no 3.5 jack nor microsd, which are big let down, but interesting nonetheless!

    PS: only one day to cover the news while all readers were asking for it, uh?
    The pace is real!

    Waiting less than year for OP4 is more interesting, than these other chinese phones.

      Those specs with that price is more than anyone else is currently offering.

    A new device already? By the time we order it from a chinese store and it’s finally delivered the device is already obsolete and replaced with a new model. (I just bought a Lemax 2 and havent received it yet). How much longer can this frenzy of new models every few months last?

    • bob
      September 22, 2016

      True! I bought my Le 2 Max in June. No need for an immediate upgrade. If it really is an upgrade. Slightly faster processor and considerably bigger battery, but slightly smaller screen with considerably lower pixel density…

      But we should not forget that for some of us this means price cuts and Leeco is doing it the right way n am loving them for this.

    GizChina was really slow to post this, I found out through mainstream sites first.

    LeEco did open a retail shop 400m down the street from me though, might be worth a look although I don’t see myself buying a Chinese version sans everything Google.

      I’ve read it’s simple to install gapps on letv’s devices, though

        September 22, 2016

        Yea, because it’s pre installed. You just gave to install play store apk and you’re good to go.

    Wot…no dual cams ~?
    Then what will distinguish this from Hundereds of others similar phones in pipe line to hit market before X-mas.

    • September 22, 2016

      The more capable high-eng IMX298 doesn`t need dual cams.
      Two average cams do not make a good one.
      Huawei’s model works because they have a better algo and put good sensors and lens.
      Dual camera phones like LeEco Cool 1 and Remdmi Pro are OK, but single sensors on the market capture better photos.

    • David Košič
      September 22, 2016

      Those specs for that kind of price is enough to distinguish it from every other phone on the market.

    • MattD
      September 22, 2016

      The biggest battery ever seen on a flagship phone is quite a good point imho… Moreover, a le max 3 is on the way with dual camera (the one with that creepy face).

  11. Umut
    September 22, 2016

    Well, I wanted to buy it but no 2K and no 8GB RAM, that’s a big bummer for me.
    Maybe I’ll buy the Le Max 2

    • ramon
      September 22, 2016

      Why you need 8GB of RAM on smartphone??? 2K will consume more battery…

      • Umut
        September 27, 2016

        Because it is not a step forward when you ccompare it with the le max 2

    SD821 + 4100mAh + IMX298 for 17999RMB really is a great offer, too bad there is no jack on this phone… that’s a showstopper for me.

    Crazy offer from leco, phone of the year, I don’t think xiaomi will price their phones si cheap.

  16. Twister12
    September 22, 2016

    Those crazy specs are nothing if it still have a $hitty rom. I’m talking of experience here as I have one of their devices. It became tolerable only when I installed an MIUI custom rom.

  17. Wolvie
    September 22, 2016

    Now hopefully those china online re-seller will not jack off the price too much. Then this is probably a very good buy comparable to Xiaomi.

    And yeah hopefully there is alternative ROM for this model. CyanogenMod is probably the best if available.
