Last week on October 27th at an event in China, LeTv launched the Le 1s smartphone along with Le Super TV. Soon after the launch, the company started taking pre-orders and today they announced a record interest for the Le 1s Smartphone.
In the 7 day period, the company has made over US$ 2 billion (12.1 billion Yuan / US$1.91 billion) from the booking amount of over 11 million units pre-booked. And it also managed to secure booking amount for 1128 units of Le uMax120 Super TV, the world’s largest Smart TV. The booking amount for the TV amouts to more than 500 million Yuan (US$79 million)
The numbers sounds too hard to believe but this is what LeTv has provided us with. It is more impressive considering the Letv entered the mobile phone business only this April, though it was into the TV business for some three years now. Though a new entrant in the mobile segment, LeTv sold about 587,000 units in September and quickly cornered a 5.8% market share.
