LeEco Pro 3 Geekbench Scores: 6GB RAM and Snapdragon 821

by Habeeb Onawole 25

LeEco’s CEO Jia Yueting has confirmed that the launch of the snapdragon 821 Le Pro 3 is tomorrow which means the phone will indeed be the first Snapdragon 821 device released in China.

In his weibo post, the CEO says the LeEco Pro 3 will be the world’s first widely available snapdragon 821 phone. You might think that should go to ASUS with their Zenfone 3 Deluxe but not at all, as the phone is still only available in Taiwan for now.


In preparation for the launch, the phone’s Geekbench scores have surfaced online with the same model number (LEX720) as the Le 2s Pro whose Antutu score showed up 3 weeks ago. The results showed it was uploaded yesterday at about 5:26 pm.


The phone scores 1865 points on the single-core test and 4452 on the multi-core test. Other details revealed by the benchmarking site confirms the use of a Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.19 GHz and 6GB of RAM. It will also come with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box.

Previous reports mention that the company will launch an 8GB RAM version of the LeEco Pro 3 with 256GB of built-in storage. The 6GB RAM version will have 64GB of ROM. LeEco is known for not including SD card slots in their phones just like Google and Apple does with their devices. So if you are going to settle for the 64GB version of the Pro 3, I think that should still be enough.

The company also released a couple of posters last week mocking Apple’s new phones for their small battery and lack of fast charging.

    8G not introduced tomorrow?

    128GB Version in black color is a must

    • AtereJr

      Keep on dreaming …. LeEco are as infamous for abandoning dark colours as they are for lacking external storage and their use of black borders.

  • Muhammad Yasir

    but will it be cheap ?

    • AtereJr

      Expect a price within the range of $350 – $450 (no thanks to resellers). Although i’m personally hoping for a price btw $300 and $350. If they price it that way, even if it packs the ugliest black border in the world, I’ll still save to get one.

        ” even if it packs the ugliest black border in the world, I’ll still save to get one. ”

        who wouldn’t !

    • goodwill

      Knowing LeEco, the price should be cheaper compared to many. I think they are focusing on getting their LeTv services into peoples hand rather than making a huge profit from selling smartphones.

      • Muhammad Yasir

        how will they get their LeTV services to countries where their mobiles are NOT officially available , like Pakistan (even tho we’re their DIRECT neighbors and closest,warmest Allies !)

        but i ain’t complaining !

        • goodwill

          It uses the internet Yasir, of course it will reach you. When I flash the Indian rom on my le Max 2, I get indian contents (channels) and vise versa for the chinese ones as well. You can always get em off aliexpress or gearbest.

          They are preparing to enter the US market as well i think because there was a leak for the US rom. It’ll be nice to get some english contents (channels)

          • Muhammad Yasir

            oh… so LETV is a global tv service (sort of ?? , since you get indian channels too along with chinese ones.)

            i have my heart set , most likely on a LeEco set but…
            importing a smartphone … is a bitch. customs guys are just gonna detain (yep) my phone and keep it until i fork over a good amount in taxes … im gonna have to do my homework before importing or i may never actually see where the phone goes once it arrives at the local port.

            how are things on your side ? do you have to pay any import taxes in India when purchasing phones off Aliexpress ?

          • goodwill

            Nope. Never paid custom tax before buying from China. I think because I always pay extra for premium courier like DHL. But I bought my Le Max 2 in Malaysia from grey importer for $280. Plenty of grey importers here. I think if you pay for premium courier, It should be fine, wherever you are.

          • Muhammad Yasir

            i see … well lets see what i can find out in Pakistan 🙂

          • goodwill

            Try asking gearbest on fb whether if they have had any orders from Pakistan and were there any issues. They should know

          • Muhammad Yasir

            are you saying they can help me circumvent the Pakistani customs department ?!

            also , i saw a few DHL rates. they’re wayyy to high man … outta my budget. DHL is out of question atm

          • goodwill

            I’m just saying maybe they can share with you with whatever experience that have had sending to Pakistan. I’m not going to lie to you tho, no premium courier means higher chance of being stopped by customs. and of course the 20-30 days delivery time

            Try browsing through Aliexpress. The vendors DHL rates are all different. You may get below $20 if you’re lucky. Make sure their ratings are high and people have purchased from them tho before choosing a vendor.

          • Rob

            You don’t get charged customs with express couriers? Never heard that one before as it’s almost 100% guaranteed customs will kill you with excessive charges even when it’s below the threshold for tax!

          • goodwill

            I’ve never been charged with customs with DHL courier before. Not even once. Maybe it depends on that country too. I know for a fact which courier you choose matters though. Like I avoid EMS, I’ve read on forums where the parcel got sent back. DHL is generally safe for me.

          • Rob

            Your lucky, in the UK it’s a given they will charge a minimum of £20 plus whatever customer want in top. Apparently it’s an admin fee for paying the duty on your behalf, more like a cash cow.

          • goodwill

            I’m in Malaysia. the customs here is a hit and run but generally, they don’t touch premium express couriers like DHL, UPS and Fedex. Sucks tho that they pretty much tax everything that goes into the UK.

          • Muhammad Yasir

            i don’t have a problem with the wait time. one month looks sensible enough…

            been browsing Aliexpress for ages now 😀

            need to get some cash together , since im broke atm

            part time jobs are hard to find in Pakistan, man. home tuition is one thing i can look at but with a tiring schedule it looks really REALLY difficult.

            what do senior students do in India to get some pocket money ?

          • goodwill

            Idk. Part timing at a restaurant or a fast food outlet I think? or data entry. haha

  • bro-reac

    Apple’s chip single core and multi-core trump the SD so leeco where will u mock the fruity guy. Let us wait.

    • Ionut Johnny

      Apple is 1000 $, this will be like 400, still will be better on some parts.

      • bro-reac

        But it is still the SD versus A10. Ofcourse in other departments am sure all will be well. though can’t pick up a fruity product except if it is just given to me. I have a tab but hate the fact that most good apps are not free after cough out that heft sum for the device.
