We’ve heard quite a bit of info regarding LeEco’s upcoming (Le) Pro 3 device, which is touted as an out-and-out powerhouse. In between trolling Apple on numerous occasions, the Chinese firm has been preparing to take the market by storm with the phablet, which could pack a huge 5,000 mAh battery to keep its Snapdragon 821 and 6 gigs of RAM running for a substantial amount of time. A new Geekbench posting seems to confirm that Qualcomm’s new top-end mobile chipset will be on board, as well as the 6 GB of RAM.
What’s actually rather amusing is that even though the SD-821 and 6 gigs of RAM may seem like overkill to some, the model outed by Geekbench is probably the entry level model of the Pro 3 series.If previous reports ring true, the fully-loaded model will arrive equipped with an eye-watering 8 GB RAM — more than you might get with many laptops.
The device mustered a single-core score of 2360 points and 6514 in multi-core testing. Set to run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, the LeEco Pro 3’s model number is noted as LEX720. This is the same model number as the so-called LeEco Le 2S Pro that clocked up a whopping 158,000 score on AnTuTu. Unless we’re missing something, we can deduce that the Le 2S Pro and (Le) Pro 3 are the same handset.
Up until it decided to make roots in Silicon Valley a few months, LeEco was just another fringe Chinese smartphone vendor. Having noted the sharp rises of many compatriots — in particular the astronomical rise of Xiaomi — LeEco apparently wants to make similarwaves splashes.
The ambition is certainly there, and overkill or not, it would certainly be hard to ignore a device with a brand-new top-level chip and double the RAM of most flagships. Oh, and unlike other Monsters of Asia, LeEco’s new Silicon Valley status means this one might actually launch Stateside.
We’ll hopefully learn more about specs, features, price and availability pretty soon, since the device will apparently be unveiled tomorrow. We’ll have all of the key details right here as and when they’re made public, so stay tuned!
