LeEco made a huge splash early last year being the first handset to offer the Snapdragon 820 processor at CES 2016. While things seemed good back then, a year later things are much different, with the company suffering from heavy financial issues. Yet, LeEco has persevered and made its way into the US via its web sales and is now being offered at popular retail chain, Target.
As you can see above, LeEco handsets are now available for purchase on the Target website. The mid-range Le S3, available in gold or gray, offers a large 5.5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 652 processor, 3GB RAM, and a 16MP camera. The higher-end Le Pro3 offers a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB RAM, and 16MP camera. The S3 can be purchased for $249.99, while the Pro3 can be had for $399.99.
The United States has been a hard market to penetrate for a majority of overseas handset manufacturers, but over the past couple of years, some have been successful, getting their wares into major retailers like Best Buy, Newegg, Amazon, and Target. Despite its struggles, LeEco has done well and is one of the few to forge its way into the US market.
