LeEco sells record 70,000 units of Le 1s smartphone in just 2 seconds

LeEco has sold a record 70,000 units of the Le 1s in just 2 seconds! At the same time, LeEco also has three records to its name. The largest number of phones sold out in a single flash sale, the shortest ever time for sale of such a large number of phones, and the highest presale registration number.  

LeEco had introduced two SuperPhones, Le Max and Le 1s -   the latter popularly referred to as “flagship killer” last month. Within 24 hours of the launch event, the registration for Le 1s exceeded 1 lakh, and in 5 days, moved upto more than 3 lakhs and within 10 days soared to more than 5.3 lakhs on Flipkart, and the final pre-sale registration number touched 6,05,000.  

"I am so proud of our achievement and the magic number of 70,000 in just 2 seconds which has never before been  achieved by any other smartphone brand. I am so grateful for the trust consumers have vested in us and I am sure they'll have a great experience in using our products," said Atul Jain, COO, Smart Electronics Business, LeEco India.

Echoing a similar sentiment, Ankit Nagori, Chief Business Officer at Flipkart said, "I am amazed by the numbers. This sales figure is a new milestone and sets a benchmark for all other brands in the industry. For a new entrant like LeEco this is really a commendable achievement." 

And those who could not buy a Le 1s at the Feb 2 flash sale, there is good news - the next flash sale for Le 1s on Flipkart is on Feb 9th. Registrations will commence at 18.00 hours on Feb 2nd.
