The Mega Launch event by LeEco


This is press release for mega launch event by LeEco in SAN FRANCISCO on October 19, 2016

LeEco™ officially launched its disruptive ecosystem model in the U.S., which breaks boundaries between screens to seamlessly deliver content and services on a wide array of connected smart devices – including smartphones, TVs, smart bikes, virtual reality and electric self-driving vehicles.

At the “Ignite the Eco World” event, LeEco hosted more than 1,700 media, analysts, industry partners, consumers and employees to unveil its open, integrated Internet ecosystem consisting of platform, content, apps and the stunning array of connected smart devices that bring it to life.  LeEco offers a unique model that puts users at the center of the ecosystem with disruptive pricing that makes premium devices affordable to all, and a feedback process that helps to refine the experience and define future products and offerings. 

“We have created a new business model that will lead the next era of technology – the ecosystem era. We are disrupting several categories and changing the paradigm by breaking down barriers and boundaries between industries and screens to create a better experience and more value for both individuals and industries,” said YT Jia, Founder, Chairman and CEO of LeEco.  “I know the road ahead is long and arduous but life is about constantly exploring the unknown, and I believe that if you dare to dream what 99% believe is impossible you’ve earned the right at that 1% chance to be successful.”

It’s UP2U

With the User Planning to User (UP2U™) program, LeEco gives users a voice in how the ecosystem evolves, and the opportunity to co-create the experience and the next-generation of LeEco products. 

When individuals share feedback with LeEco via user trials, social channels, on-device apps and at events, their comments are shared with the User Experience Center (UEC) and research & development (R&D) teams to influence product updates and shape future offerings.

“We developed the UP2U model to let users directly influence how our products and services evolve.  We have a dynamic process for gathering and implementing the feedback into every aspect of our business from design, R&D and software, to pricing and even the content we deliver,” said Rob Chandhok, Chief R&D Officer for LeEco North America. “Because our software ties everything together and the content continues to grow, our devices and the experience continually get better.”

A Truly Connected Lifestyle

LeEco’s revolutionary Ecosystem User Interface (eui) is an intuitive interface that unifies our ecosystem with two core principles: breaking device boundaries and putting content at the heart of the experience. The eui experience transcends all boundaries providing seamless interconnectivity across all LeEco devices by removing the barriers between software, hardware, platform, content and apps.  It is the answer to the fragmented user experience.

The definitive TV experience, the LeLIVE™ app delivers your favorite TV channels with a simple touch on the home screen. LeLIVE gives you an unmatched TV viewing experience for provocative and outrageous entertainment on nine simultaneous screens in the palm of your hand.

Habitat Eden Heights - The place you want to live in

My visit to Habitat Eden Heights came more from curiosity. Promises of ‘well thought through amenities’ to ‘wide open spaces’ were made. So, I did myself a favour and accepted the invitation to attend their launch. That being said Habitat Eden Heights was a very convincing experience. As you walk through the boulevard, you cannot miss the badminton courts, basketball courts, tennis courts, with enough green surrounding them.


These facilities are perfectly designed and I could picture myself unwinding over the weekend over a good game. It was almost nostalgic. Back in school, I remember how we used to make use of every opportunity to play. Gobbling our lunches as fast as possible so we could spend more time playing numerous sports.


As per me it is the perfect fit for a sports enthusiast like myself. A sports-zone with floodlights! Well-lit to make ‘playing after sundown’ more accommodating to my tight schedule. Another addition, among many, is the well designed and modern gym, at the sky clubhouse. What a statement!


Being architect developers, it is safe to say that these guys have put in thought to every square inch of this property. Although this property is located on Hoodi main road, 200 mts off Hoodi Circle, the homes are nestled deep within the property, keeping the traffic noise to a bare minimum.








Whitefield, is a booming part of the city. With the best of the malls close by and some amazing restaurants, that are on my list of favourites, this part of the city is the ‘it’ place to live in for a young family.

All in all, a fun day spent with loads of activities, a live RJ from Radio One and very eager families who were excited about the idea of living at Habitat’s Eden Heights. Eden Heights is a delightful home to be in a soon to be paradise.
