Some time ago, the TV and mobile industries were set on a collision course thanks to the arrival of LeEco, which used to be known as LeTV. A firm out of China, the brand now owns America's Vizio, and this week marks the launch of the brand onto US soil, and with it a raft of affordable devices. LeEco make some of the best bang-for-the-buck smartphones to come out of China, but they also make some amazing TV sets, too. All of which run Android TV. In the Super4 X-series of TVs, LeEco is launching three sizes, all with 4K panels, at 43-inches, 55-inches and 65-inches.
These three TV sets all share the same common DNA, which happens to be excellent image quality thanks to the 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 which should ensure some super-crisp images and the 120 Hz motion will ensure that it's all super-smooth, too. With all kinds of features on the TV side of things, it's clear that LeEco is looking to bring their brand over to the States in not just smartphones, but also in TVs as well. The Super4 X-series all feature quad-core 64-bit CPUs and run the latest version of Android TV as standard. This is the sort of Android TV that's unadulterated and has all the same features that you know and love, without any messy overlays or anything like that, although LeEco is including their telltale eUI here for a coherent experience across devices. For sound, LeEco have partnered with Harmon Kardon to deliver excellent size, despite the svelte frames of each set, all of which come under 14mm thick.
These are some great-looking TVs and while the LeEco brand is an unknown right now, but with all of the additions that LeEco is touting as extra value, such as the including Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity and super-fast 802.11ac WiFi and a voice-controlled remote. The Super4 X43 is $649, the Super4 X55 jumps up to $899 and the largest 65-inch Super4 X65 is $1,399 and LeEco is offering up an instant rebate of $200 for each of these devices. All of which makes these a competitive new entry into the smart TV market.
