The LeEco Le Pro 3 went on sale in China yesterday and no less than 3.5 million people pre-registered to purchase it. Therefore, it’s no surprise that LeEco’s new Le Pro 3 sold out in just 15 seconds.
LeEco didn’t sell out of a few hundred or even a few thousand units, but they sold out of their entire first batch of phones, a whopping 500,000 units!
Starting at 1799 yuan ($269), the Le Pro 3 utilizes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 and a minimum of 4GB of RAM, outperforming both the OnePlus 3 and the ZTE Axon 7 in price/performance alone. And those who need a replacement phone having returned their exploding Samsung Galaxy Note 7s have the option of paying less than a third of the Note 7 for very similar specifications.

Review units have not been sent out yet, so we cannot comment on how well the phone performs or if there are any potential issues, but we definitely have high hopes.

And it appears LeEco is coming to the U.S. on October 19th. Kudos to them. My Nexus 6p is definitely good for at least another year but if their phones are priced right, which I think they will be, then I just might buy one.
I read that news too.
It looks like they will launch phones, bikes, TVs and other good stuff.
I’ll be waiting for it with interest
They purchased Vizio not too long back and already have an office set up in San Jose.
It is the same exact problem as other famous cheap China vendors (Xiaomi, OnePlus, etc). Somehow all the products (at original cheap pricing) always sold away and magically appear again at much higher price at those china online re-sellers.
Is it coincident that those china online re-sellers always got plenty of stocks ??? I DON’T THINK SO, there is something very fishy here.
IMHO that’s not especially fishy, that’s just contracts between a phone brand and its distributors ^^
But I agree the fishy thing is Xiaomi display unrealistic prices, since distributors sell their products with 20% commission at least.
