LeEco has launched its first phone that has been made in India, Le 1S Eco superphone. It looks like an upgraded version of the very successful Le 1S. As far as the looks and design is concerned, it looks the same as Le 1s but there are some minor changes. It is priced at INR 10,899, with 1 year LeEco Membership, which is priced at Rs. 4,900. You can also grab it for just INR 9,999 as an introductory flash sale offer. The first flash sale will commence on 12th May 2016 at 2 PM onwards.
A week ago, we witnessed the launch of Le 2, Le 2 Pro, and the Le Max 2 in China and now the company has started to strengthen its roots in India. I has officially announced the launch of Le Ecosystem in India and LeEco phones will now be coming with the membership on demand. There are a lot of benefits for the members, about which, we will discuss later.
The company has touted their Le 1s Eco as the first “Made for India” device, which basically means that the company is going to add on 10 Indian languages via an OTA update. The 10 languages will be Kannada, Tamil, Assamese, Bengali, Malayalam, Telugu, Gujarati, Punjabi and Oriya.
It boasts of the same hardware that we have seen in the standard Le 1s, which has a 5.5 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080p) in-cell display. It has got the same Helio X10 Octa-core processor clocked at 1.85 GHz coupled with 3 GB of RAM and PowerVR G6200 GPU for better graphics. The internal storage is 32 GB which cannot be expanded further.
On the camera front, there is a 13 MP rear camera with PDAF that can also record 4K videos. On the front, there is a 5 MP camera that has 85 degree wide-angle lens and clicks great selfies. Like the Le 1s, it also has a mirror finished fingerprint sensor that works amazingly quick. The one change is the OS, Le 1s Eco comes with Android Marshmallow out of the box, whereas the Le 1s comes with Lollipop.
It is powered by a 3,000 mAh non-removable battery that has fast charging support and can provide you with 3.5 hours of talk time with just 5 minutes of charging. There is USB Type-C port and a 24W charger and a 3A cable.
