LeEco today said U.S. consumers will be able to find its products at more stores around the country. Specifically, an expanded number of Best Buy stores plan to add LeEco smartphones over the next few months. The same is also true of BrandsMart USA, which will stock LeEco phones both in stores and online. LeEco said HSN and Fry's will carry more of its ecotvs. The two main handsets LeEco sells to U.S. consumers are the Le Pro3 and Le S3. The phones are sold unlocked and are compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile.
The LePro3 from LeEco is a flagship-class device that costs hundreds of dollars less than today's top phones, and yet it delivers almost-as-good performance. This unlocked Android Marshmallow smartphone works on AT&T and T-Mobile's LTE 4G networks and carries a bevy of video content apps.
LeEco's S3 smartphone is one of two handsets the Chinese company hopes will entice US buyers to take a chance on the brand. The S3 combines a metal chassis and mid-range specs with lots of video software to make for an affordable content-consumption machine.
