Chinese internet conglomerate LeEco on Tuesday garnered Rs 78.6 crore by getting purchase orders of over 61,000 units of its “superphones” LeEco Le 2 and LeEco Le Max 2 in its flash sale on Flipkart and LeMall.com, LeEco’s own marketplace e-commerce platform.
LeEco, which is also the first brand to release two flagship phones with Qualcomm processors in the same day, had over six lakh registrations for Le 2 and Le Max 2 in eight days.
