Its launch had been anticipated by the brand itself and yesterday we did a review of all its filtered features. We speak of the new flahsgip of the Chinese company LeEco, which has finally been named LeEco Le Pro 3 AI Edition and not Le Max 3 as the rumors said. Of course, its two star characteristics, the dual camera and the virtual assistant, have ended up being confirmed.
LeEco launches new flagship, and does so by joining two of the most current trends in telephony. On the one hand, the company debuts on the terrain of double cameras with a 13-megapixel sensor combo, one for color and the other for black and white. The other novelty is LeLe, the new virtual assistant based on AI that can be controlled with the voice. We tell you about the LeEco Le Pro 3 AI Edition.
Huawei style dual camera
As we have already seen, the double camera is one of the main novelties of the LeEco Le Pro 3 AI Edition. With this option, the terminal adds to the growing offer of smartphones with dual cameras, and does so by betting on an operation that sounds pretty good for another Chinese brand.
The rear camera of LeEco Le Pro 3 AI Edition consists of two 13 megapixel sensors whose main difference is that one of them captures snapshots in color and the other does the same with black and white images. It is the same principle that Huawei uses in the cameras of its most advanced models.

LeEco combines this system with what they call “LE IMAGE AI Engine”, a processing system that promises clear and clear images in low light conditions, although for that we must wait to see the results achieved.
The lenses under which the sensors are located have aperture f / 2.0, so they should also be helpful in those situations where light is scarce. In addition, it has focus by phase detection, double LED flash and 4K video recording.
For the front camera, LeEco opts for an 8-megapixel sensor, mounted under a wide-angle lens with aperture f / 2.0.
LeLe, another name for the war of the assistants
The name of the new LeEco smartphone makes it clear that artificial intelligence is a differentiating point. We have already seen a mention in the processing engine of his camera, but the highlight is the new virtual assistant who has been named LeLe.
Among LeLe’s capabilities is to be activated with the voice even though the screen is off, it also understands natural language and allows voice control. It is also integrated with LeEco apps and the brand ensures that it works with third-party applications such as AliPay.
With this proposal, which certainly does not seem to add any value to what we already know from other attendees, LeLe joins the increasingly long list of voice aides. However, we do not believe that it will serve much outside of China.
LeEco Le Pro 3 AI Edition, technical specifications
Although the double camera and the virtual assistant are its two star characteristics, the LeEco Le Pro 3 AI Edition does not renounce to offer a technical profile to match. We start with your screen, with 5.5 inches of diagonal and FullHD resolution for a good sharpness. In addition, the brand ensures a maximum brightness of 600 nits that should translate into good performance outdoors.
Under the metal chassis LeEco Le Pro 3 AI Edition is the processor, or rather we should say processors, as this model comes in two variants with different chip. The simplest one has a Mediatek Helio X23 at 2.3 Ghz and offers an internal capacity of 32 GB, while the premium version stays with a Helio X27 at 2.6 Ghz and doubles the capacity to 64 GB. Both models offer 4 GB of RAM.
Regarding the connections, the two have dual SIM slot, dual band WiFi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS and USB-C. It could not miss the fingerprint reader and a large battery for a good autonomy, specifically of 4000 mAh.
