LeEco entered into the Indian market earlier this year with the launch of Le 1s and Le Max smartphones in the country that were launched exclusively on Flipkart. It recently unveiled Le 2, Le 2 Pro and Le Max 2 smartphones at an event in China that are expected to launch in India soon. Now the company has renewed its exclusive partnership with Flipkart that was signed off by Atul Jain COO Smart Electronics Business on behalf of LeEco and Flipkart.
LeEco said that it sold 400,000 units of Le 1s and Le Max smartphones in a short time period. The company did not say if it is planning to launch all the smartphones in the country. LeEco has scheduled an event in Mumbai on May 3rd with entertainment in focus.
Commenting on the partnership, Atul Jain, COO – Smart Electronic Business, LeEco India, said:
We are extremely pleased to extend our successful partnership with Flipkart and are confident of jointly offering consumers an even better purchase experience backed by the full assurance of a genuine high quality product with warranty support in India. While we aspire to cross our previous sale figures, we are equally focused on redefining the future of smart devices and continue to invest towards delivering truly compelling experiences to consumers at competitive price point along with seamless buying experience.
Anil Goteti, VP – Business, Flipkart, said,
Le Eco’s Le1s has been a great success on Flipkart. We saw massive rise in consumer interest both for the brand Le Eco and the product. We are extremely happy to take this partnership forward for the launch of the next device and are confident that together we will create new benchmarks for the online smartphone space in India. Our focus will be to continue to introduce exciting products through partnerships like these.
