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.
