LeEco Pro 3 Teardown: SD 821, 6GB RAM & IMX298 Camera

by Habeeb Onawole 3

The highly anticipated LeEco Le Pro 3 launched yesterday and will go on sale on September 28. Reservations are already underway, so if you want one you should hurry. The phone has a 5.5” FHD display, a snapdragon 821 chip clocked at 2.35 GHz and 98% of its body is made out of premium metal.

The Le Pro 3 gets the teardown treatment which reveals the LPDDR4 RAM that comes in 4GB or 6GB variants. The main camera is a 16 megapixels Sony IMX298 sensor with dual LED flash. There’s a 4070mAh battery that should last more than a day and charges quickly if you use the 24W Quick Charge 2.0 travel charger that comes with it.

The built-in storage is a UFS 2.0 with multiple sizes allowing buyers the option to choose what’s best for them. There is a 32GB version with 4GB of RAM, a 4GB RAM/6GB RAM + 64GB ROM model, and a 6GB RAM + 128GB edition. If you ask me, I think a phone with 256GB of storage is an overkill.

One reason I prefer the Le Max 2 over quite a number of phones including the OnePlus 3 is the band support. The Le Pro 3 follows the same pattern by offering just one model with multiple bands instead of the regional versions like the OnePlus 3.

The Le Pro 3 is easy to take apart.The tools you’ll need aren’t more than a screwdriver set and a little heat to melt the glue that holds the front glass in place.
