It appears that LeEco of China is making records after records as far as its Le 1S smartphone is concerned, which was launched in India last month alongwith Le Max. According to the company, it received 95000 orders of Le 1S within 20 second today for its second flash sale on Flipkart, which is a record of a sort.
Prior to the flash sale today, the registration number reached a record high of 10.30 lacs – an astounding figure which is an industry first for any mobile brand in India. LeEco has once again created three incredible records: The largest number of orders received in a single flash sale; the shortest ever time for the orders received and the highest presale registration number. LeEco’s international stature, superior technology and lower-than BOM cost pricing have contributed immensely to creating these amazing records, as stated by the company in its press release.
Commenting on the recent records achieved, Atul Jain, COO, Smart Electronics Business, LeEco India said, ” A million thanks to our customers for helping us reach these magic numbers. It is a very proud moment for us at LeEco and immensely gratifying to have set new records of crossing I million pre-sale registrations and receiving 95000 orders in a mere 20 seconds which has never before been achieved by any other smartphone brand. We are humbled by this overwhelming response and now even more determined to live upto to the trust consumers have vested in us.”
The next flash sale for Le 1s on Flipkart is on Feb 16th and dedicated to the silver colour model of the phone. Registrations will commence at 18.00 hours on Feb 9th. Those who registered earlier but could not buy today would not need to register afresh as there would be a roll over.
At a price only Rs 10,999, Le 1s has a metal unibody, a world’s first mirror-surface finger scanner, and a 5.5″ FHD display, the flagship processor of the year Helio X10 Turbo, 3GB Ram and 32 GB storage, dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, and USB Type-C port. On the camera front, there is a 13-megapixel f/2.0 rear camera, and 5-megapixel wide angle selfie camera. Another outstanding feature is the phone’s fast charging technology, which means a 5- minute quick charge allows for 3.5h talk time.
