LeEco Debuts in US with Snapdragon 821 Powered Le Pro3 Priced at $299

Apart from the LeEco Le S3, the company has launched their latest flagship smartphone dubbed the Le Pro3 in the USA. Incidentally, the Chinese firm has now announced their smartphone in North America even before introducing it in India. And it goes without saying that it’s set to be the start of the show for the company in the States, at least in the smartphone category.


Just like the Le Max 2, the company’s Le Pro3 is one of the first devices to come with the latest Snapdragon chip from Qualcomm. Under the hood, the LeEco Le Pro3 comes with a Snapdragon 821 chip which apparently is an improved version of the SD820 that has made its way into a number of flagship smartphones from 2016. The most interesting feature of the SD821 is the native VR support which in turns enables a seamless performance of the company’s own LeVR headset.

Up front, the Le Pro3 comes with a 5.5 inch Full HD (1920x1080p) IPS LCD display with a 73.8% screen to body ratio. On the inside, the LeEco Pro3 comes with 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM, apart from the SD821 processor. It’s worth noting the company hasn’t brought the 6GB RAM/128GB internal storage version of the Le Pro3 to the US. Neither has the company announced any plans to launch it in near future.

To the back of the all-metal unibody smartphone, lies a 16MP f/2.0 rear camera that’s equipped with PDAF sensor and dual tone dual LED flash. The rear shooter is capable of shooting 4K videos at 30fps, 1080p at 30fps and 720p slo-mo at 120fps. That aside, the Le Pro3 packs an 8MP f/2.2 selfie snapper that’s also capable of shooting 1080p videos.

In order to provide a holistic multimedia experience, LeEco has packed dual stereo speakers onto the Le Pro3 which again comes with Dolby Atmos certification. The rest of the features include the presence of NFC, Infrared Port and USB Type C. Powering the Le Pro3 is a 4070mAh Li-ion battery that comes with support for Qualcomm Quick Charging 3.0. Talking of connectivity features, the Le Pro3 comes with WiFi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, A-GPS, GLONASS, and BDS.

The LeEco Le Pro3 comes in two colors – Gold and Grey – and will go on sale in the US on the company’s own LeMall store for just $399. However, LeEco will be selling the Le Pro3 at a discounted price of $299 till the end of this year. Besides, it’s worth noting that the Le Pro3 will on be available on their e-commerce platform via flash sales. So if you indeed plan to get your hands on one, you will surely need to have some luck by your side.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Another SEO tool drops the word “SEO”

Majestic, the link intelligence database that many SEOs have come to use on a daily basis, has dropped the “SEO” from it’s brand and from its domain name, to become Since most people won’t have used Google’s site migration tool before, here’s what it looks like once you press the “go” button:

In actual fact – there’s a minor bug in the tool. The address change is to the https version of (which GWT makes us register as a separate site) but that message incorrectly omits that. Fortunately, elsewhere in GWT its clear the omission is on Google’s side, not a typo from the SEO. It is most likely that the migration tool was developed before the need for Google to have separate verification codes for http and https versions of the site.
