The company LeEco, which has been viewed as some sort of Chinese Netflix got into smartphones about a year ago and recently started developing electric cars. They seem unstoppable, on account of a pretty big cash flow and big partnerships. The future may bring more high end devices, like the one below called LeEco Le Max 3 (2017), rendered by designer Uva7 Dance.
This model is just a concept, but it may end up becoming real and for a very low price. LeEco openly said they’re willing to take a loss and generate big sales of their devices. Anyway, this is more of a phablet than a regular smartphone, a 6 inch device with a Super AMOLED screen that’s VR ready and has a 4K resolution.
All specs are overkill here: 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of storage, a Snapdragon 823 CPU and dual 12 megapixel main cameras with dual LED flash. Dual speakers with 1 Watt of power each are included, as well as a 3600 mAh battery. Measuring between 6.4 and 6.9 mm, the smartphone brings a fingerprint scanner as well, plus an infrared sensor and USB Type C port.
Its format takes me back to the OnePlus 3 a bit and also to previous Meizu and Xiaomi devices maybe. Nice metal frame though.
