LeEco Le1s has announced that 70,000 units of Le1s has been sold out in Just 2 seconds via flash sale on Flipkart. le1S is priced at Rs 10,999 . Second sale of Le1S on Feb 9.
The largest number of phones sold out in a single flash sale, the shortest ever time for sale of such a large number of phones, and the highest presale registration number. These are groundbreaking records made ever by any mobile brand in India thanks to the LeEco’s international stature, the very attractive price and amazing features.
LeEco’s launch was much awaited by many in the country and even credited by media as "LeEco Phenomenon" thanks to the company's constant innovations and market disruptive policies. The company officially entered India on January 20th by holding one of the largest launch events in the country attended by over 1,000 guests, including high profile industry top honchos and media,.
As part of the launch LeEco introduced two SuperPhones, Le Max and Le 1s - the latter popularly referred to as “flagship killer”, expected to capture a significant share of the massive middle-class market with its attractive price and superb specifications. Consumer response has validated the popularity of Le1S. Within 24 hours of the launch event, the registration for Le 1s exceeded 1 lakh, and in 5 days, moved upto more than 3 lakhs and within 10 days soared to more than 5.3 lakhs on Flipkart, and the final pre-sale registration number touched an astounding 605,000, setting a string of new records in the industry.
"I am so proud of our achievement and the magic number of 70,000 in just 2 seconds which has never before been achieved by any other smartphone brand. I am so grateful for the trust consumers have vested in us and I am sure they'll have a great experience in using our products," said Atul Jain, COO, Smart Electronics Business, LeEco India.Echoing a similar sentiment, Ankit Nagori, Chief Business Officer at Flipkart said, "I am amazed by the numbers. This sales figure is a new milestone and sets a benchmark for all other brands in the industry. For a new entrant like LeEco this is really a commendable achievement."
And those who could not buy a Le 1s at the Feb 2 flash sale, there is good news - the next flash sale for Le1s on Flipkart is on Feb 9th. Registrations will commence at 18.00 hours on Feb 2nd. Since there will be no roll -over of existing registrations, whoever registered earlier but could not buy, would need to register afresh.
Another outstanding feature is the phone's fast charging technology, which means a 5- minute quick charge allows for 3.5h talk time. Business people need never worry about the phone running out of charge during busy days.
And buyers of this phone can expect a content ecosystem to be uploaded into its android-based EUI system in the 2nd quarter of this year since the company has already signed contracts with Eros and Yupp TV.
LeEco has put in place 555 service centers in prime locations in the country, besides providing 24*7 toll free services, and other value-added services.
