Le Max Pro
The company formerly known as LeTV is currently hiring hundreds of new U.S.-based employees, getting ready for an official launch on this market in just a few months.

Formerly known as LeTV, LeEco is a Chinese phone maker that offers aggressively priced premium handsets and will soon strengthen its position in the United States. To do that, the company plans to make its official debut on the local market this fall.

According to Todd Witkemper, LeEco Director of PR, the company already has more than 400 employees in the US and plans to end the year with over 1,000, all working in four west-coast locations. The company became well-known back at CES 2016 when the Max Pro was unveiled as the first handset to use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor.

LeTV/LeEco had plans to bring the Max Pro to the US in early 2016 but decided to wait and bring more than just handsets to this market. Now, the company plans to launch its video streaming service on the US market as well. Its handsets will retail unlocked and with full support for multiple streaming services, including well-established ones. We will get back to LeEco as soon as we hear more about its official US debut, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
