"The LeEco Super TVs bring an extensive and feature-rich software interface as well, which is what essentially makes them smart"

From two Doordarshan channels to TV-on-demand, we’ve come a long way in terms of the content we consume via televisions. Smart TVs have taken this experience further by completely redefining what a television can do. Not just electronic appliances capable of playing broadcasted content anymore, smart TVs have now become a full-fledged entertainment hub, that not only allow users to consume media in different formats but also lets them stay connected to the world, play games while assisting in productivity at the same time.

The cherry on the cake when it comes to smart TVs is the addition of a brilliant display, and to deliver the best experience, companies have come up with 4K smart televisions. However, to get your hands on a decent one you will have to spend upwards of a lakh. While most 4K smart TVs in the Indian market come for a premium sum, LeEco, a Chinese tech giant, has disrupted the scene, just like it did with its smartphones. LeEco’s Super3 range of 4K smart TVs comes for a starting price of Rs 59,790, which in itself is revolutionary. But that is not where it stops, as the televisions bring an extensive and feature-rich software interface as well, which is what essentially makes them smart.
