Over the past 10 years, LeEco has established itself in the Middle Kingdom as the largest provider of Internet services, streaming video, a manufacturer of smart gadgets, virtual reality devices, e-commerce, and even unmanned electric vehicles.
The growing capabilities of the Chinese electronics giant prompted the company's management to change the "sign", as the first name LeTV became too "cramped" for it. From the former, only the beginning remained in it - Le, to which a promising addition - "Eso" was added.
LeEco positions itself as a holding consisting of 7 business areas, or rather ecosystems, which include the production of mobile devices, content, sports, Internet and cloud technologies, home theaters, financial Internet services and the production of unmanned electric vehicles.
The ambitious plans of the holding are to enter the huge markets of the USA, Southeast Asia, India and press out their more promoted and venerable competitors such as Amazon, Netflix and challenge Apple itself.
In order not to remain unfounded, the "young Chinese tiger" has already shown everyone its "claws and teeth" in the form of interesting and promising technical innovations.
LeSee Unmanned Vehicle
It's no secret - we are witnessing the beginning of the era of self-driving cars. The LeSee electric drone is the Chinese answer to the American Tesla and other leading European automakers, which are actively creating prototypes that are in full swing on the roads of the Old and New Worlds.
The well-known tendency of Chinese manufacturers to technological and design plagiarism can be seen here too. A person who has seen Tesla at least once will notice some similarities without much difficulty. However, do not offend the Chinese. They did their best to create a completely modern vehicle with a transparent roof, LED headlights and cameras that replaced the rearview mirrors, not to mention the unmanned features.
Not without cooperation. So the engine was developed in conjunction with Aston Martin specialists. The autopilot enables LeSee to move along city streets with the ability to park. Participation in driving an electric vehicle is possible using a smartphone or tablet.
Perhaps the main problem facing the manufacturers of mobile devices today sounds like a question: how else to surprise the buyer, fed up with all the imaginable and inconceivable functions of modern gadgets, the "ranks" of which have been replenished with a line of smartphones from LeEco - Le 2, Le 2 Pro, Le Max 2.
The most "revolutionary" was the rejection of the 3.5 mm standard audio jack, which will now be played by the USB Type-C port. In this, the Chinese were even ahead of the world "steam locomotive" - another novelty from Apple - iPhone 7.
It combines all three models of the Android 6.0 OS, aluminum cases, where fingerprint scanners are located on the rear panels. Unlike Le2 and Le2 Pro, Le Max 2 has a larger display, a more powerful camera, more RAM and built-in flash memory.
TV with voice control LeTv X 4-50 Pro
Hang it up on the wall and turn it on to create a gorgeous Full HD 50-inch panel. The clarity of the image is reinforced by the proper number of pixels - 3840 x 2160. This TV can be rightfully classified as an elegant product, since its body is a little less than a centimeter in thickness.
He will well "remember" everything that the owner "orders" him. To do this, he uses the mighty memory of 32 GB.
X 4-50 Pro is equipped with Android 6.0 OS and smart function control system. He is also armed with a webcam and the ability to connect to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
LeVR virtual reality helmet
The virtual reality helmet has become a kind of "icing on the cake". Where can you go without him today? The best result is possible when paired with one of the "native" smartphones. By the way, about plagiarism. In style, LeVR is somewhat reminiscent of Samsung's Gear VR.
To start the helmet into operation, a smartphone must be properly inserted into its headset. The controls are an accelerometer built into the helmet and a special remote control.
