9to5Rewards: Three LeEco Le Pro3 Android smartphones in gold [Giveaway]

Winners: Erik Slaven, Cory Archer, and Danny Jarrett K.

This week’s 9to5Rewards partner is LeEco, who just launched its line of smartphones, TVs, and bikes in the United States for the first time last year. Today, the company has offered to give away an LeEco Le Pro3 “ecophone” (as the company calls them) to three of our loyal 9to5Google readers.


Samsung Galaxy S7 dummy and press render leaks suggest gray and gold models incoming

A couple of fresh leaks this morning suggest the Samsung Galaxy S7 range will see a return to a more traditional color scheme. A press render from oft-reliable Evan Blass reveals a dark gray model, while a retail dummy phone unit leaked by Pisapapeles shows a gold version of the device.


OnePlus X in Champagne Gold available to order from December 22

OnePlus has announced that it will be bringing its alternative white/champagne gold version of the OnePlus X to western markets from next week. Anyone with an invite can purchase the champagne gold edition direct from the company’s online store from December 22nd. Up until now, this option has only been available in China.

Specification-wise, the phone is exactly the same as the Onyx (black) model. Like the black model, it will also come with the option to have a glass back, or the more limited (and more expensive) ceramic back. You won’t need a special invite to get this new color, and if you have an existing, valid invite when the gold models become available, you can use it for either black/grey or white/gold versions of the company’s budget smartphone.

The OnePlus X is one of this year’s most brilliant budget smartphones. It received virtually unanimous praise from reviewers, and made its way on to our list of 2015’s best affordable Android phones. If you’re looking for a great handset with premium build, brilliant display and responsive performance, you can do a lot worse than spend 0 on the OnePlus X (now in a more classy white and gold). Personally, I’d love for it to be bigger, but it’s undoubtedly one of the best small smartphones out there.

Google to soon begin selling Nexus 6P via Best Buy, offer the gold variant in the United States

Before the Nexus 6P launched, it seemed — thanks to some early render leaks — that four different colors of the phone were going to be available for consumers. Come the Nexus event in September, only three colors (Aluminium, Graphite, or Frost) were available in most regions, with only Japan announced to be getting access to the last “Special Edition” gold variant. According to people familiar with the matter, the company is planning to soon begin selling the Nexus 6P via Best Buy, and finally launch the gold variant in the United States after only just recently making it available to Japanese customers through cellular carrier SoftBank…

Latest Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge press render leak shows off classy black, gray and gold together

Having seen a few leaks already over the past few weeks, it’s fair to say there’s little left to the imagination when it comes to what Samsung will announced this coming Sunday. The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are expected to take on a design very similar to the S6 family, albeit slightly more curvy and perhaps a little thicker.

Though now, It does seem that Acer has quietly revealed a new gold variant of the Chromebook 14, and it’s coming soon.
