Formerly known as "LeTV", LeEco is one of the hottest new smartphone brands in China right now. They were matching the rest of the competition in terms of specs and build while beating them on pricing. Previously, LeTV launched the Le 1S, a super phone on an entry midrange price. As a result, we just wished that somebody would bring that device here even on grey market only.

We got our wish, even on grey market only!
Recently, we just saw a listing at Widget City that they're selling this highly interesting device that could give the Redmi Note 3 a run for its money!
Why? On paper, the Le 1S is a beautifully crafted metal clad handset with 5.5 Inch FHD screen at 401 ppi. It also goes with the powerful Helio X10 chip paired with PowerVR G620 GPU, 3 GB of RAM, 16 / 32 GB of ROM and 3,000 mAh of battery capacity.
It also has a 13 MP rear camera at the back with LED flash and 5 MP camera sensor in front. The Le 1S also has LTE connectivity, fingerprint sensor at the back and a slim profile at just 7.5 mm.
