LeEco has been preparing its entry into the US market for quite a while now, and even acquired Vizio in the process. Back in June we heard that the Chinese company would officially make its debut in the US this fall, and now we have an actual date to speak of.
LeEco is holding a special event in San Francisco on October 19, and it’s started sending out press invites for it (which you can see pictured below).
As for what to expect from that event, apparently LeEco will reveal a smartphone (or more) as well as a video streaming service that will compete with Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and the likes. Both of these would make sense – LeEco started out as LeTV and quickly established a huge footprint for itself in the streaming market in China.
And more recently, its smartphones such as the new Le Pro 3 flagship have been selling like hot cakes in its home market – to the tune of 500,000 units being gone in 15 seconds, in fact.
Do note that LeEco hasn’t officially announced what it’s going to talk about at that event, so there’s still a chance we might see something else. But mark the date in your calendar nevertheless.
