The newest Chinese entrant LeEco, formerly known as LeTV, will be hosting the first ever Le 1S flash sale in India later today.

The company has roped in Flipkart as its official e-commerce affiliate to sell the feature-rich Le 1S at 12:00 pm, and has reportedly received an overwhelming 530,000 plus registrations for the upcoming sale. However, LeEco has not revealed how many units will be up for grabs.

Tips on how to increase your chance to grab Le 1s on Flash sale:

Going by the six-digit figure, it will be a difficult task to get your hands on Le 1S on Tuesday. Prospective buyers, in order to increase the odds of buying the device, are advised to log in to their respective Flipkart accounts at least half an hour before flash sale and keep refreshing the page every few minutes to make sure the countdown clock is running properly.

Also, make sure you keep your debit/credit card nearby so that you can complete the purchase transaction within the stipulated time or else the device in your cart will be transferred to another eligible buyer in the waiting list.

Flipkart is offering additional an 10% discount to Axis credit/debit card holders. This means the price of Le 1s will reduce from Rs 10,999 to Rs 9,899, which is a steal considering the kind of features Le 1S boasts.

[Note: People interested buying Le 1S have to be registered or else they will not be eligible to make a purchase. Registration window will be open (HERE) till 11:00 am, 2 February.]
