So we already had a pretty good idea of what LeEco was going to announce today thanks to a leak on its website earlier this month, but now have it all on the record. The event itself was full of buzzwords and marketing speak that all means close to nothing to most people. But sprinkled in, the Chinese company announced a slew of Android-powered products coming to the United States…
Everyone can use an Echo Dot: Just $50!
The first and most notable of which is the LePro 3, a flagship level device which debuted in China last month. It packs a 5.5-inch FHD display, 16MP rear camera, an 8MP front camera, up to 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor, Android Marshmallow, a 4,070 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0, and a fingerprint sensor. For all of this, just $399 unlocked. But LeRewards will effectively cut that down to $299.
LeEco also today announced the more affordable Le S3. This device brings the same screen size at 5.5-inches, and packs a very similar design and form factor. It runs on top of the Snapdragon 652 chipset, with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 3,000 mAh battery. The website lists it at $249, but it comes down to $149 with the $100 in LeRewards.
LeEcoalso announced four high-powered Android TVs in a variety of sizes., all running on top of Google’s Android TV. The TVs are all 4K, but they range between 43-inches and 85-inches. The LeEco Super4 X43 Pro is the cheapest of the bunch at $649 before rewards, and the LeEco uMax85 is the priciest at $4999 before rewards. Find more info at LeEco’s site:
As mentioned, these are all run Google’s Android TV, which means that they’ll all run Android apps. You’ll be able to access all of your favorite streaming services — like Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu — of course, but the TVs also support Google’s voice search and Google Cast.
