Even in 2015, we saw some exemplary smartphones with sharp displays, 3/4GB RAM, and good looks but again pricing was the disappointment. But this time, you’ll be surprised to know that all of this is coming at a much affordable price with the new LeTV’s Le 1s!
Yes, you’re guessing it right, the renowned internet conglomerate LeTV, known for its smartTVs and e-commerce products, has entered Indian smartphone market with its prolific “Superphone” range.
