Coming to the specifications, the Le Pro 3 Elite come equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and not the Snapdragon 821 like Le Pro 3. The latest mobile lacks the NFC support as well. Rest of the specifications remain the same of both devices.

The device features a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display with 2.5D curved glass. The Snapdragon 820 processor on the device is paired with 4GB of RAM, Adreno 530 GPU, and 32GB of internal storage.

Meanwhile, the LeEco Le Pro 3 features almost same set of features and specifications of the newly launched device; however, it boasts upgraded Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.35GHz and NFC connectivity.
