LeEco sells 10 Million smartphones within a year
LeEco, the Chinese smartphone brand, has grossed sale of over 10 million units in its home country of China. The total sales have been achieved in a space of one year, between May 19, 2015 and May 25, 2016.
LeEco's push for increasing its sales include presenting an entire ecosystem of content alongside presenting devices. The company has recently introduced its 'Supertainment' package in India, presenting bundled exclusive content to its buyers along with its devices.
LeEco, the global internet and ecosystem conglomerate has announced that, from May 19 last year to present, LeEco Superphones have accumulated sales of over 10 million units in China, setting a record for the fastest smartphone brand in the industry to hit the 10-million landmark.
During the company’s one-year anniversary ceremony release celebration of the Superphone, Mr. Feng Xing, Senior Vice President of LeMobile stated that “This is an important milestone for the direction of the mobile industry, it represents the shift from the smartphone era into the ecosystem phone era.”
Since entering the industry a year ago, sales of LeEco’s Superphones continued to break records at every step, hitting the 4 million mark in a mere eight months, and the 5 million mark in January, which made it the fastest brand to achieve that. With the advent of second generation Superphones, the total sales number has crossed 10 million.
With a commitment to providing optimal experience at the most disruptive prices, LeEco termed the new industry concept as a powerful and comprehensive ‘ecosystem phone’, where rather than hardware, offers of high-quality content sits at the core.
The second generation of Superphones are the world’s first to have innovatively replaced 3.5mm earphone jack with USB Type-C port backed by Continual Digital Lossless Audio (CDLA) standard. LeEco also released its latest EUI 5.8 OS which achieves historically nine-camera live video streaming, representing a giant step forward from the 3-camera live video streaming.
Mr. Feng added that “the ecosystem phone model is re-directing the mobile industry, and LeEco is leading the ecosystem revolution in the industry”.
Besides China, LeEco has seen record-breaking sales in India as well. With the release of the Le 1s and Le Max earlier this year, followed by the launch of the first “Made for India” Le 1s Eco in early May with tailor-made Supertainment membership program including more than 2,000 movies, 100 TV channels and 3.5 million songs in 10 languages, LeEco Superphones have sold a jaw-dropping 500,000 units within just 100 days, once again proving the success of the company’s highly-replicable business model globally.
