Hands-on images of LeEco's powerhouse Le Pro 3 hit the web
Earlier today, the LeEco Le Pro 3 was officially introduced. Apart from the pre-launch whispers of 8 GB RAM, most of the touted specs were right on the money, and the Chinese firm has somehow managed to cram a top-end SoC, 6 GB RAM and a 4000+ mAh battery into a 7.5mm-thin, $300 package. For that kind of price, LeEco might have been forgiven if the outer profile wasn't quite up to par with more expensive flagships. Judging by the first batch of hands-on images, though, the LeEco Le Pro 3 plays the role of beauty and beast. 

LeEco has exerted considerable energy in throwing digs at Apple lately, while also promising to make a splash in the market following its newly-opened Silicon Valley offices. If the Le Pro 3 is to be used as a marker, we'll surely have much to look forward to from this rather vocal, ambitious outfit. 

It's understood that LeEco intends to roll smartphones out to the United States market later this year, though it remains to be seen whether the Le Pro 3 will be among those on offer. Still, if the company can manage to introduce such powerful, stylish devices on the cheap, Apple, Samsung and the rest may have some cause for concern. 

If you missed the release coverage, be sure to take a look at the round-up of the Le Pro 3's key features. If you're just here to ogle the device's 98% metal exterior, take a look through the gallery below.

I know it's first world problems lol. That being said, it still would look better if the black border was gone. I'm curious to see what the performance is with this device compared to the Note 7 or iPhone 7.

Seems like bezels aren't stylish on devices other than Apple's.

And I thought 3100 mah in the 7.3 mm z3 was great. But 4000 in a 7.5mm is just unreal! Great job Leeco!

I like the fact that they "copied" apple by not having a headphone jack and including an adapter. Gotta stay classy.

Technological illeterate you are, or maybe among the ones who lives in caves. Leeco was the first device to ahed headphone jack in favoir of USB type C common port with CDLA technology when it released Leeco Le Max 2 in May 2016. So it seems that it's Apple that has got a knack of copying others, yo the point that it copied Leeco decision to even include an headphone adapter to connect 3.5mm headphone. Apple is one hell of a COPYCAT

For the money this is a great phone. However, good luck selling 100 million just to profit. Would love to see the real cost through iFixit...
