Chinese tech company LeEco has been growing in India at an alarming pace, and one of the company’s biggest announcements will be the arrival of its Super TV lineup. With a hashtag labelled ‘The Future Is Big’, one could easily figure out that the manufacturer intends on releasing large screen television products that do not just carry an impressive aesthetic element to them, but they will be priced at a far more affordable range compared to the rest of the competition.
During the CES 2016 trade show, LeEco showcased its Super 4 Max65 Blade, and as the name suggests, the company was marketing its latest large-screen TV as being the thinnest 65-inch television to be sold. Featuring a thickness of just 3.9mm, you’d definitely need to have steady fingers to carry and assemble this massive television.
Earlier this year in China, LeEco managed to unveil two TVs named Super 4 X50 Pro and Super 4 X50. Both of these television products radiate a 4K resolution, although the notable difference between the Pro version and the regular one will be that you will be able to view 3D content on the former. Both TVs also pack impressive hardware underneath their large frame so that you will not have to experience those unnecessary hitches when browsing on a Smart TV, so that’s a welcome feature. While there are several products that the manufacturer has announced overseas, the real question is which Super TV models are going to be announced in India?
Our gut tells us that all three models are going to be announced, along with superior price and ‘after sales’ support too. LeEco is not just known for manufacturing large screen television products; the company is also prepping to announce a powerful Android smartphone packing a Snapdragon 821, so it is also possible that we get to hear a small briefing regarding this.
Since these are our guesses, we will be informing you guys with all the latest info including features, price, and availability details of LeEco Super TV as soon as the announcement goes live today, so keep checking this post in short intervals.
