LeEco Le Pro3 and Le S3 will be $100 cheaper on launch day, but there's a catch
Last week, LeEco announced two smartphones in the US: Le Pro3 and Le S3. While you may have not heard of LeEco, the company is pretty big in China, and has the resources to enter the US market (of course, it remains to be seen whether or not this endeavor will be a successful one).

Similar to other China-based companies, LeEco will sell its handsets at very attractive prices. The high-end Le Pro3 (with features including a Snapdragon 821 CPU, 4 GB of RAM, and a 4070 mAh battery) will cost $399, while the mid-range Le S3 (with a Snapdragon 652 CPU, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3000 mAh battery) is priced at $249. In case you're not finding these prices attractive enough, LeEco will let you buy any of its two new phones for $100 less on launch day (November 2).

In order to buy the Le Pro3 for just $299, or the Le S3 for $149, you have to sign up on LeEco's US website (see the source link below), join the company's LeRewards program, and pre-register for the sale that will take place on November 2. You still have to pay the full prices for the phones, but you'll receive $100 as rebate. You should probably read all the terms and conditions that LeEco will provide once you're actually making your purchase(s).

Both the LeEco Le Pro3 and LeEco Le S3 sport 5.5-inch 1080p displays, have fingerprint scanners, and do not have 3.5mm audio jacks. The smartphones run customized versions of Android Marshmallow, and will work on GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile. Verizon and Sprint are not supported. Interested?

That's a very good price. Any one has idea about software support from LeEco?

Specs and price are awesome. Lack of headphone jack, UI and huge bezels (the pictures/renders are misleading) are not. Plus, ROM development is pretty much non-existant for LeEco. Good luck with software updates, bugs, UI and phone longevity.

Well also not only faster charging in general but more than twice as fast charging if you use your phone while charging.

They do include the adapter with the phone, but understandable if you don't want to deal with that
