Chinese phone maker LeEco has launched what appears to be a rehashed version of its LeEco Le Pro 3, which they are calling LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite. Despite having an "elite" in its name the phone appears to be more of a letdown as it is not much different from its predecessor other than it is cheaper than the previous model.
The phone is a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display covered with a 2.5D glass along with a Snapdragon 820 chipset. It has a 4GB of RAM and 32GB and 64GB of internal storage option. Unfortunately, there is no memory card slot available for further storage expansion.
It comes in a gold colour all-metal body and packs 4070mAh battery to power it up, which will be enough for a normal one-day usage according to Le Eco. There is also an option of Quick Charge 3.0 to enable fast charging. On the camera end of things, this new phone has a 16-megapixel rear camera with an aperture f/2.0, capable of shooting 4K videos at 30fps and a 8-megapixel front/selfie camera. Moreover, you get a run of the mill dual SIM card slots, 4G compatibility, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and GPS system with the phone. However, it lacks a NFC functionality.
LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite costs Yuan 1699 and has already been made available via popular Chinese e-commerce platforms – Jingdong and Lynx and also from LeEco's own LeEco Mall. The device also comes with three months of free access to LeEco's video streaming service. There are no plans for an international launch of the phone as of yet by the firm.
