LeTV sell an incredible 1 million USB Type C phones in 3 months


letv phone sales

LeTV surprised us all with their first Android phones, and have actually done something rather amazing! They have sold 1 million LeTV phones in just 3 months.

LeTV have been around for a few years as a video streaming service in China, then a smart TV vender and most recently an Android OS, and mobile phone brand. So far LeTV have launch 3 of their “Le Superphones” and with all sales totted up have managed to sell 1 million phones!

1 million smartphones is an incredible number but it is even more impressive considering it has only taken the company 3 months to achieve this milestone.

The popularity of the LeTV range has resulted in 20,000 LeMax selling out in just 21 seconds, and 50,000 Le 1 in 53 seconds. The company have also seen the fastest growth of any phone brand in China with a 4.4% sales increase in June (selling a todal of 564,000 phones in that month alone!).

The LeTV range consists of the LeTV Le 1 which we reviewed here, and have been throughly impressed by since it arrived at the office. The Le 1 Pro with beze less all metal design and wireless HDMI and the Le Max with 6.33 inch display and fingerprint scanner.

We are currently waiting for our LeTV Le Max to arrive so that we can review the flagship phablet. Stay tuned.

    waiting eagerly for Le Max, after OnePlus debacle…

      what’s wrong with OnePlus?

        The usual, customers will start to get their hands on invites just in time for Christmas.

        Stupid 2016 flagship killer doesnt come with quick charge.

        Paris’s event at Colette was a big fail, a masquerade, a bad joke… not something that makes you confident in the future of the brand: too much ‘hype’ for too little work and professionalism…

          would you mind being more specific? weren’t there many people attending it?

            Allegedly, Colette was supposed to sell 30 devices. At the end, they only had 17 phones for hundreds of people that waited in line for long hours before the store was even open.
            Carl Pei promised, on twitter, invite cards for everyone waiting in line but it turned out to be another marketing move because OnePlus didn’t gave any invites. OP simply made a list of all the people present and asked for emails saying they would send invites by email the next week or so.

            Sure, at least 300 people waiting in queue, from around 5AM to 11 AM, coming from Paris, France and other countries around… There were only 20 units available to buy (!) and no invitations were given because “Colette didn’t accept to distribute invites…”. End of event at 12AM.
            Then, a meeting was (quickly) organised in a bar (!), later at 7PM, where Carl distribute invites around to remaining attendees.
            Lots of people are upset with such arrogance and contempt…

              wow
              now i get it why they call it 2016 flagship killer.
              because at this speed they won’t be able to satisfy the demand before 2016.

              did you manage to get an invite at least?

              Nope. Waiting email…I’m not on a hurry. And if Huawei Nexus is first, then I’ll go with it.

    Yeah, I was excited initially about the MAX.

    But after waiting for a long while and reading about the rather long list of issues with the smaller LeTVs (WiFi, GPS, Chinese bloat, reception and lack of US LTE bands), I decided to move on and got an Edge.

    Eager to read the review though and see how the camera performs.

      Same here. I wanted the Max then heard about the problems.

        They are starting to finally fix them. The chinese bloat can easily be deleted with Titanium. Or there are some ROMs around which take care of that for us.

    amazing record

    That is impressive, especially compared with OnePlus’s 1.5M since there inception.

    Was very impressed from the way they handled their entering the global smartphone market
    starting this year, the way they presented their phones at press conferences, the building quality, the great ROM and the end price.
