LeEco’s business started off as an online content streaming service, therefore it is expected that the company would look to expand into the television business themselves. LeEco’s line of televisions are some of China’s leading models, with more than 7.0 million units sold in the last three years alone.
An impressive number perhaps, and one that the company is looking to emulate in the US now, after it has completed partnerships with a number of content providers and creators such as VICE Media, Machinima and Lionsgate.
The LeEco uMax85 sports a gigantic 85 inch display with a 4K resolution, with features such as Full Array 448 Active Local Dimming Zones, Dolby HDR, Fluid Motion Display Technology and Harman Kardon Audio speakers.
Coupled together with the uMax85 is the eui experience, which include the Le and LeLive apps, offering customised content, while working seamlessly with other LeEco devices such as the Le Pro3 and S3 smartphones for a fuss-free entertainment.
Besides the uMax85, LeEco is also bringing in its Super4 X series of TVs, all housed in a slim aluminum frame, featuring an ultra-thin bezel. Ranging from 43 inches up to 65 inches in size, the Super4 X are all also 4K TVs, so you won’t be short-changed in terms of display quality regardless of the display size.
Both the LeEco uMax85 and the Super4 X TVs will be available in the US on the 2nd of November, where LeEco will be having a flash sale on their LeMall website. The LeEco uMax85 will retail for USD$4,999, while the Super4 X TVs will sell for USD$649 for the 43 inch, USD$899 for the 55 inch and USD$1,399 for the 55 inch.
Every purchase of the LeEco TV will also get you a free subscription to LeEco’s EcoPass membership. Every EcoPass comes with a two year warranty for LeEco phones, and three years for EcoTVs, 5.0TB of cloud storage on LeCloud, Unlimited movie viewing on Fandor, exclusive sale days on LeMall, as well as discounted prices for many add-on content partners on LeEco’s app ecosystem.
