Original Story

LeEco is gearing up for its event in Mumbai, which is themed "Supertainment," where new smartphones and content-related services are likely to be announced. The event, which is being held at Mehboob Studios in Bandra, is set to begin soon and we will bring you live coverage of the LeEco's Supertainment announcements.

From what we have learnt so far, at least one smartphone will be launched on Tuesday. The Chinese internet conglomerate is expected to make some major announcements around content streaming services, something for which it is well known in its home country.

LeEco is planning to replicate its successful ecosystem in India. The company has already revealed its plans to invest $10 million in setting up in-house cloud and content delivery networks (CDNs) across the country by the end of this year. The new infrastructure would strengthen its content delivery capabilities in both mobile and TV segments.

Besides content and services, LeEco is expected to launch a new smartphone. Sources have informed International Business Times India, that the new smartphone will be disruptive in terms of pricing and that it would cost cheaper than the popular Le 1s. In terms of specs, the handset will retain most of the premium specs of the Le 1s.

If the rumours are to be believed, LeEco might also launch three new smartphones, Le 2, Le 2 Pro and Le Max 2, at the event on Tuesday, which were unveiled in China last month.

Live updates will appear on the top of the story.
