LeEco reveals price of US LePro 3


leeco pro 3

Early today Chinese brand LeEco held a huge US launch where it announced pricing and specs for the LePro 3 phone.

LeEco had already released the LePro 3 in China and India, so customers in the US wanting the phone had to import the device, but not for much longer.

The flagship LePro 3 will officially be on sale in the US at a price of just $399 with 5.5-inch FHD display, 4GB RAM and Snapdragon 821 chipset. LeEco has also bolstered the spec with fingerprint scanner, 16-megapixel main camera, 4070mAh battery and fast charging system.

As you may all be aware the phone doesn’t support a 3.5mm headphone jack but instead ships with a USB Type C adapter for “Continual Digital Lossless Audio”. Colour options include Grey and Gold and the phone will go on sale from November 2nd!

For those of you on a more modest budget, LeEco also brings the Le3S to the US at a reasonable price of just $249. The phone also has a 5.5-inch display, fingerprint scanner and 16 mega-pixel camera, but gets a Snapdragon 652 chipset and smaller 3000mAh battery.

    if you can get a phone during the flash sale on 11/2 with the $100 instant rebate, these phones become much more interesting

    • balcobomber25
      October 20, 2016

      if you want the $100 coupon you need to pre-register for it. It’s not a true flash sale, anyone who registers before the 2nd will get it.

      • jimberkas
        October 20, 2016

        It doesn’t look like pre-registering (which I did) will guarantee a phone at this price. from the LeEco LeRewards FAQ:

        “Unfortunately, getting a LeRewards instant rebate for a specific product
        does not guarantee that you will be able to purchase that product
        during the flash sale. It only guarantees that you will be able to
        purchase that product with the rebate if it is still in stock. Supply is
        limited during the flash sale, so we encourage you to visit LeMall as
        soon as the flash sale is on.”

          Just show up at 10am on the 2nd you should be good.

        October 20, 2016

        and it appears that you can apply this promo 5 times. so it would appear that you are able to order 5 phones at the discounted price. I worry it will sell out immediately.

      • MaxPower
        October 20, 2016

        Supposedly. Let’s wait to see how many handsets they are going to give away at that price

        • balcobomber25
          October 20, 2016

          Let’s see how popular it is in the US as well. Even with the great specs it’s still a relatively unknown brand.

              True that.
              I’m sick of this gold-silver-champagne – rose bandwagon.
              Where’s the old dark color phone?

              Anyway, I followed their launch and they said that on black Friday/cyber Monday they will come out with deals that will make Amazon feel ashame.
              For this reason I’m not gonna rush on getting a gold phone.
              I’ll be wait till black Friday and then I’ll make up my mind.

              I am sick of metal phones altogether. I would love companies to go back to polycarb or something else. Metal can have better build quality or it can be worse, depending on the quality of the metal. But it seems every company for the most part, is stuck on metal which is so limited in designs.

              Polycarb is plastic, I am one of Xiaomis biggest supporters. I hate people who are so pathetic they pretend to be someone famous. Especially when they pretend to be someone who doesn’t write in English.

              bummer about the gold. I won’t buy a gold phone. I was interested in the S3, not the Pro 3. Since I don’t dig the gold color, and lack of SD was kind of a bummer…I think I’ll wait and see if the Honor 6X comes to the US soon

            • MaxPower
              October 21, 2016

              I’m not going to buy a gold phone either, hopefully the coming soon is referred to both phones and not the grey only.

              it’s like a thought, only gold version available.
              I bought it anyway, my old RN3 Pro died, and I needed a new phone asap.

              I kinda regret it though, i think the S3 il a better deal at $149.
              Personally i dont need more than a SD652

    yes with the 100$ flash sale they look really good..sadly from europe 🙁

    it should also be noted that i think i heard that the us 4gb ram version has 64gb storage instead of 32 like the chinese 32gb version..or did i get soemthing wrong? at least i believe the chinest 4gb version has 32

    • balcobomber25
      October 20, 2016

      You are correct, they don’t have a 32GB model in the US. It is 4/64.

      Also for those of you in Europe there is no Band 20 supported on this phone. It supports: 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/29/30/38

      Hopefully LeEco launches it for you guys eventually.

      • Beloved Chairman Lei Jun
        October 21, 2016

        Only like 3 or 4 countries in Europe actually use Band 20. Also, dear if u live in the city u dont need that band. most of the time its just one carrier that has band 20. trust me, the whining about it is complete nonsense dear. thanks for ur support of the millet brand

        • balcobomber25
          October 21, 2016

          Your fake Lei Jun account was funny for about a day, now it’s just pathetic and sad. I can see your confusion about Band 20, because the numbers 3 and 4 are in the number of countries that use Band 20. It is 43 though, and it amounts to hundreds of millions of people. The population of Germany is 81 million, of that only about 7 million actually live in major urban centers.

    This is really, really sad. A no name maker decides to copy Apple’s false steps. Chinese phones are infamous for their unreliability (I have a ZTE Geek and it’s everything but reliable – fast, cheap, powerful, but severely broken), so removing the headphone jack too was a bad idea. Think I’ll skip this one. Hope it doesn’t have a dual SIM slot too. IIRC, they’re a PITA to work with when porting CM.

      Actually, le eco removed the headphone jack before Apple ever did not saying I support the move, but they certainly weren’t following apples lead. If you have an issue with Chinese phone reliability as a whole, this website might not be your best resource. To each their own, and everyone is welcome to have their own opinion, but there are many high quality Chinese phone makers at the moment. There is also a lot of junk too (cough…. Elephone…. Cough). For th most part, le eco falls under the reputable, reliable category, and offers a good return on your money.
