Letv announces when its going to enter the Indian market


The first batch of Letv phones early this year was probably enough to tell that the company has some serious aspiration w.r.t. smartphones. The new Letv 1s only made it better… and worse, for buyers outside of China.

Unlike Xiaomi, Letv have been quick in showing their intent on going global. Almost every Chinese phone maker now also has local presence in India, and going by what they announced today, it’ll soon be joining the list.

Letv will be entering the Indian market by early 2016 according to company founder Jia Yueting.

Letv is currently riding high on the launch of its new products from a couple of days back, which included the aforementioned Letv 1s smartphone, a smart car, a 120-inch 3D 4K TV, and more.

Letv is first and foremost a content provider, so its not clear as to exactly what products will Letv bring to the Indian market when it does start its operations there. I think it’d be safe to assume the pilot plan would include a phone or two, and perhaps even a smart TV.

    And what was the “worse” part you were talking about?

    • October 29, 2015

      The fact that buyers outside of China can’t just go and buy the phone at its actual price 😛

        Hi Yash, I am planning to buy the MI4C with 3gb RAM. I have read some comments about it saying that it present heating issue. Have you or some of your relatives who own the phone experienced that kind of problem? Would you recommend me to go for the MI4C? LETV 1S seems to be an amazing device but what about the community for resolving bugs? Damn it, why is it so hard to pick the right phone!?

        I could get the MI4C on IBuygou with 3gb ram and 32gb rom for 233€ using a coupon (shipping not included). The original MI4 in Black color (WCDMA) version is currently sold at 210€ (without shipping). Each phones have pros and cons but 16gb on the MI4 might not be enough for me in future needs.

        Your help is welcome! Please!!!!

          Mi4c is more powerful and camera should be better and 32gb should be great for you. As for the heating problems I don’t think the SD808 would run so hot to create issues.
          Hope I helped

    Early 2016? I have been following them on Facebook and they said pretty soon. I don’t think 60+ Days qualifies as pretty soon in anyone’s dictionary.

    Don’t worry guys. It’s not 2016. I asked LeTV in their Facebook page and they replied me to stay tuned as it is going to be pretty soon and they never told anyone that it was going to be launched in 2016
