The first is a 5.5-inch beast with the Snapdragon 821 FullHD beating inside, supported by 6GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. Its rear and front cameras are 16 and 8 megapixels, respectively.

Leeco to transport
Le SuperBike, intelligent bicycle that the company introduced a few months ago, also is on his way to the United States. During the presentation, the company mentioned that his model of smart bike with Android will also come to America “soon” without mentioning specific date or price.
Well, this whole range of possibilities is very attractive; the Chinese company has actually landed in America with a wide variety of devices that bode well for a pretty decent acceptance by the market. However, the company did not want to leave anything to the imagination and also introduced the Leeco LeSEE Pro, its autonomous car.
Well, say this is a bit risky because rather it is the concept of autonomous car that the company has . It is noteworthy that this is the second prototype (the first was the Leeco LeSEE), same as “is smarter and more connected” than the previous model, according to comments Leeco.
Being a prototype, details about its price and production schedule were not shared, and indeed Jia Yueting, CEO of Leeco, said the first model ready for production will be presented at the next CES, so this model could not see the light and be replaced by another, as it surely will.
Leeco comes to America steadily, that there is no doubt. However, being a relatively new brand has yet to go through a process of acceptance that will surely be shortened by the great reputation that leads from China and around.
In a few years, we will be talking about Leeco as one of the leading manufacturers not only in America but throughout America? Only time will tell.
