LeEco makes US debut with two luxe, low-cost phones
At a San Francisco press event, Chinese-based company LeEco unveiled two phones, the Le Pro3 and the Le S3.
The Le Pro3 is a more powerful handset with a 5.5 inch display, Snapdragon 821 processor, 4 gigs of RAM and 64 gigs of on-board storage.
It has a 16-megapixel camera, and on the front is a eight-megapixel shooter.
You also get a fingerprint reader and a USB Type B port.
The phone boasts a massive 4.07-ampere-hour battery.
With Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 technology included, LeEco claims the phone can charge up to 33% in 20 minutes.
LeEco's second phone is the Le S3 Though it has the same size screen and camera specs.
It's equipped with a Snapdragon 652 chipset and 32 gigs of internal memory.
Both phones feature llive, a streaming service from the company that lets you watch TV shows, movies, and other content.
Perhaps the most compelling features for these phones are their prices.
The Le Pro 3 costs just $399, and Le S3 costs $229.
Though other high end budget handsets exist, like the one plus three for example, at a sum $400 price that still makes them way more cheaper than other flagships that run up to $700 or more.
