New Delhi: Chinese smartphone maker LeEco on Tuesday claimed that 300,000 people had done pre-sale registrations for its Le1S device on Flipkart, five days after it launched two “superphones” in the Indian market.
“… going by the current pre-sale registration numbers, we should be setting new sale records for ‘superphones’ in India,” Atul Jain, the company’s India COO, said in a statement.
The phone is available for Rs.10,999 on Flipkart, which is also giving a 10 percent cash back for the Axis bank card users. The registrations for the first flash sale of Le1S will continue till 11 a.m. on February 2.
