LeEco and Xiaomi are in the news these days because it is expected that both the companies will unveil their 8GB RAM smartphones. LeEco held an event today where the company wrapped off the covers from the LeEco Le Pro 3, a super high-end device that will make you think again about a ‘Flagship’. In fact, it is a ‘Powerhouse Flagship’. Why? Well, specs don’t lie and the device packs some unbelievable specifications. But! It isn’t the phone we were actually waiting for because it isn’t that 8GB RAM phone. Maybe LeEco won’t be launching any such device, at least until the end of 2016. Anyways, lets talk about the features of Le Pro 3.:D
LeECO LE PRO 3 FEATURES
The Le Pro 3 is really a gorgeous looking device with a full metal design that makes it look super premium. The curved edges make it easier to hold the smartphone in the hand.One interesting thing is that despite having a massive 4,070 mAh battery, this device is just 7.5mm thick. The bottom of the phone houses the speaker outlets along with the USB Type-C port. It is to be mentioned that there is no headphone jack! No surprises at all. The back has a brushed metal design and that is really eye catching as you can see in the image above!
On the left, we have nothing except the SIM tray. The volume buttons and the power button is are on the right side. Coming to the front, we have the front-facing camera, earpiece, and sensors. Below that is the gorgeous 5.5-inch display that has almost no bezels! There is a rear camera , flash, the fingerprint scanner and the Le logo on the back. Overall, the design of the phone impressed us.

As per the performance, the Le Pro 3 comes with a Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.35GHz and as per the GPU, we have Adreno 530!
