LeEco to Open 555 Service Centres in India
Last week, LeEco entered the Indian market with the launch of its smartphones – Le 1s, Le Max, Le Max Sapphire. The launch happened after the company explained its rebranding from LeTV to LeEco as an effort to expand and enter a number of businesses. We wondered whether LeEco can make good on the many promises it made during the launch event, one of which was the plan to hold a flash sale on the 2nd for the smartphones, which can be damaging to the company’s image if it fails to deliver.
Well, it looks like LeEco is serious about establishing its place in India and wants to assure customers that it is here to stay. The company has announced plans to open at least 555 service centres across India to offer after-sales support for customers. LeEco says these centres will spread across 300 cities in India and will have a 24/7 toll-free helpline with support in 10 languages, which includes English, Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil, and Telugu.
Furthermore, LeEco is offering an excellent warranty on its devices. If the phone breaks or stops working within the warranty period, customer’s will receive a brand new handset. LeEco is also offering free pick-up and drop-off service for the LeMax smartphone.
“At LeEco, it is our constant endeavour to provide our users with superior products and content integrated ecosystem which ensure that their user experience on all our devices is unified and exceptional. We are very excited about our launch in India and look forward to a long-term association with consumers in this market.
