LeEco Le Pro 3 AI Edition coming with dual rear cameras and virtual assistance
Images of LeEco's upcoming smartphone with dual rear cameras were first seen as early as last year and they were notable for the humorous "smiley" arrangement of the rear cameras. The Chinese manufacturer has finally unveiled the smartphone earlier this week as the Le Pro 3 AI Edition coming as early as April 14th in China. The core Le Pro 3 model is already coming to the US.
Two variants of the 5.5-inch Le Pro 3 AI Edition will be made available. The first will carry a FHD display, MediaTek Helio X23 SoC, 4 GB RAM, and 32 GB of expandable storage space. The second higher-end model will carry the faster Helio X27 SoC with double the internal storage space, but the remaining specifications are expected to be identical. Both smartphones incorporate two 13 MP (B/W and RGB) rear lenses with PDAF, f/2.0 aperture, and 4K recording capabilities. Meanwhile, the front-facing camera will have a f/2.2 aperture and a wide-angle 76.5 degree field-of-view for easier selfies. Other features include a 4000 mAh battery, USB Type-C, 802.11ac WLAN, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and a 7.5 mm thickness. LTE bands 1, 3, 7, 38, and 41 are supported, but the common Band 20 used across Europe is conspicuously missing.
The LeEco virtual assistant is called LeLe and is based on Google Assistant. The LeEco UI, after all, is built on top of Android 6.0 Marshmallow and promises improved optimizations based on the usage activity of the user.
The Le Pro 3 AI Edition will launch for 1800 Yuan or the equivalent of 245 Euros while the higher-end SKU will cost 2400 Yuan or the equivalent of 328 Euros.
