LeEco coming to the US this fall
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.
