[Update: 11:04 a.m. IST-- LeEco India launch event will kick off at 11:15 a.m. IST]
Chinese consumer electronics major LeEco, formerly known as LeTV, is expected to launch new smart devices in India on Tuesday.
The company's event will go live in about a few hours in Mumbai. LeEco has also announced that the entire programme will be streamed online via Facebook, so that the fans residing on other corners of India, are able to watch the event on computers and smartphones.
In the invitation, which was sent to media outlets last week, the company did not directly mention the significance of the event. But the cryptic message on the invite, which reads – "Block your date to witness the revolution, Entertainment will play in a whole new way" hints that LeEco will probably release the newly unveiled Le 2 and Max 2 series phones in India as they are the world's first devices to boast new USB Type-C headphone port with Continual Digital Lossless Audio (CDLA) noise cancelling standard for enhanced music hearing experience. It also doubles up as a charging port.
Stay tuned for more updates as our correspondent is attending the LeEco event and will be doing the live coverage of the proceedings from Mumbai.
Readers can watch the LeEco launch event live on the company's official Facebook page (HERE).
