Le Eco (formerly LeTV) launched the much-awaited Le 1S in India on January 20 and seems all set to outstrip other rivals. Why’s that? Easy! With breath-taking looks and design, the Le 1S has enough and more to make competitors sweat!
Gorgeous design and a stunning display with Gorilla Glass 3
The Le 1S sports a stunning, all-metal unibody design which gives it an elegant look along with a feeling of solidity – yup, a combination you won’t find in any rival. The bezel-less display – a pretty remarkable feat of design – also reduces the footprint of the phone, making it comfortable to hold. Isn’t this all a much tastier recipe compared to the competition – which at best gives you plastic backs and metal accents on what’s a pretty chunky body? Yup, we’ll have to admit that in terms of design and build quality, the LeEco Le 1S definitely has an edge over its competition, thanks to its all-metal body.
As for the display, the Le 1S has a 5.5in, 1080p IPS display (protected with Gorilla Glass 3), giving you crisp text and vibrant, natural colours. And of course, it gets very bright when you need it, making the 1S the perfect device for anyone who loves being outdoors.
It’s fast. Very, very fast!
The Le 1S is a budget powerhouse. Compared to the competition (and even smartphones a lot more expensive), the Le 1S goes one step ahead, using the super-speedy octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 chipset (clocked at a whopping 2.2GHz). And with 3GB RAM, you’re guaranteed a smooth, fluid experience! Gaming addict? Multitasking maniac? You’ll love the Le 1S!
A fantastic camera and enough storage for all your music
The Le 1S has a cracker of a camera as well. At the rear, you get a 13MP camera with LED flash (for lifelike images even in low light) and, guess what, Phase Detect Auto Focus (just like in a DSLR), which makes focusing faster and more accurate (imagine getting a focus lock in 0.09 seconds)! There’s more for you finicky camera buffs – slo-mo video recording and even HD videos with flash!
Combine that with great options and you get a camera experience you’ll fall in love with. But even if you take a lot of selfies, you’ll be a happy camper, as there’s a 5MP camera in the front, which delivers sharp, clean selfies – perfect for your next party or when chilling out at a beach shack in Goa.
But what if you also want a great choice of tunes when on vacation? With 32GB on-board storage, you’ve got enough space for music and even movies. Phew! Just made your next long-haul flight a lot better.
There’s more stuff you’ll love!
The LeEco Le 1S runs the acclaimed EUI interface atop Android 5.0.2 Lollipop – and you can expect an upgrade to Marshmallow quite soon. But what makes EUI the best Android interface around? Well, it’s fluid, responsive and makes navigating your way around extremely snappy and intuitive!
What’s that? You’re a movie buff? EUI has you covered with Le Eco’s fantastic content ecosystem – how about free subscriptions to streaming services like Eros Now and YuppTV? Yup, get the coolest in entertainment right on your new Le 1S!
But the Le 1S doesn’t stop here. There’s a fingerprint scanner, which is fast, accurate and lets you store up to five fingerprints. And it also doubles up as a mirror. Smart indeed!
As for connectivity, there’s 4G LTE for a lightning-fast mobile Internet experience, 802.11 Wi-Fi, GPS, mobile hotspot and Bluetooth 4.0 for all your new fitness trackers and accessories!
Pricing and availability
The Le 1S is priced very affordably at ₹10,999 and will be exclusively available on Flipkart via flash sales starting February 2, at noon!
