Commenting on the remarkable achievement, Atul Jain, COO, Smart Electronics Business, LeEco India said, "We are immensely proud to be setting new industry trends and spearheading the move to ecosystem-led devices in the country. It is very humbling to see consumer enthusiasm for our content ecosystem, and their demand for more and more original content. We're also pleased that our superphones have lived up to consumer expectations and we are committed to raising the bar with all our subsequent launches.
