Chinese smartphone manufacturer LeEco has launched the Le Pro 3 Elite in China. Le Pro 3 Elite is almost same with Le Pro 3 in terms of specification and design apart from few minor changes. Changes are more kind of downgrade as Le Pro 3 Elite uses Snapdragon 820 instead of Snapdragon 821 that was used on the Le Pro 3 and it also lacks NFC. However good thing is that the price of Le Pro 3 Elite is cheaper than that of the Le Pro 3 and it also comes with 3 months of LeEco’s video streaming service membership.
In terms of design there is hardly any difference between Le Pro 3 Elite and Le Pro 3. Le Pro 3 Elite is priced at CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs. 16,500) and is already available on the company’s China site, Lemall.com for purchase. Currently it’s available only in Gold color option.
