Chinese Internet company Letv said on Tuesday it will introduce its “smart cycle” in India later this year as it looks to tap into the booming demand for smart devices in the country.
Announcing its foray into the Indian market, the company also unveiled two more gadgets – a 3D helmet and Bluetooth headphones.
“Our aim is to provide consumers with an exciting and refreshing new alternative of ecosystem based products consisting of platform, content, devices as well as applications,” Letv General Manager Smart Devices APAC Dickson Lee told reporters in New Delhi.
He further said that the company will provide more details on the pricing and other launches at an event on January 20.
The company is expected to launch two new smartphones on the occasion.
“These products should be available in the first half of the year,” he said.
Founded in 2004, the Beijing-headquartered firm has a number of businesses, spanning from Internet TV, smart gadgets, large-screen applications, e-commerce and Internet-linked super-electric cars.
Talking about the Super Cycle, Letv India Sales Head Mobile Business Anish Kapoor said the cycle is an Internet-enabled self-powered transport system.
Equipped with “Cycle” operating system, the cycle comes with 8400mAh battery that charges as one pedals, he added.
The connected bicycle comes with a walkie-talkie for communication, GPS for navigation, lighting system that lights up automatically upon sensing the surroundings as well as anti-theft technology.
The company will showcase the connected smart bike as well as its Le Superphones, the world’s first 120-inch 4K Ultra HD TV, and a selection of its popular lifestyle products.
Letv’s Le 3D Helmet sports a 5.5-inch LCD screen (2K resolution). The device weighs less than 450 grams and offers 70-degree field of view.
The LeMe Bluetooth headphones are the “world’s first” headphones with teardrop design. Working on 20-20,000MHz frequency, the headsets have 195mAh battery and weigh 240 grams.
