LeEco showcases its Supercar LeSEE along with FF – The World’s first driverless concept supercar
LeSEE concept car encompasses a unique “internet” design, with a large and flamboyant LED screen. This concept car mainly takes on the idea of “inter-connection”; not only does it have fully-automatic driving functions, it can also learn on its own, with facial recognition, emotion recognition, system recognition and path recognition. LeEco’s founder Jia Yueting with Le Supercar’s co-founder, the global deputy president Ding Lei, revealed the first model of the concept car, LeSEE, and showed the automated driving capabilities of the super car.
At the event, LeEco gave a very sneak-peak to the audience to its concept car. Besides the electric car that holds the concept of LeEco’s intelligent shared transportation ecosystem, LeEco will also announce on the auto show in Beijing a partner in the major domestic automotive industry, as well as the world’s first AI research center with both automotive factory units and an internet company in USA’s Silicon Valley–the “FF& Le Future” Research Center.
LeEco also launched the fourth generation Super TVs – Super 4 X50 Pro/Super 4 X50/Super 4 X50 CSL.
All three products all are 50 inches, 9.9 mm ultra-slim metal bodies, with the latest and most powerful smart TV flagship chip Mstar6A938, massive 3GB RAM+16/32 GB eMMC5.1 high speed flash drive, and support MEMC dynamic image processing technology, as well as HDR technology.
Super 4 X50 Pro/Super 4 X50/Super 4 X50 CSL are loaded with the latest EUI5.8 TV–Springer operating system. This system allows for the management of various desktops and realizes stream of consciousness interactions, giving the user whatever the user wants. It fully realizes the ability to turn into a desktop all the apps; videos, sports, games, shopping, music, etc. all the contents are a part of the desktop, and can be run according to the audience, giving different groups of people a custom desktop content. Le Super TV is the true eco TV, with supreme configurations and performances, it can satisfy the best experiences during its lifetime and operational needs.
Super 4 X50 Pro will lead the way for big-screen TVs into the “age of double 3 (3GB+32GB)”, HDR+MEMC+double 3 (3GB+32GB) configuration will start big screen performance aesthetics
At the event LeEco also released the world’s first Ecological UI system, an upgrade to the EUI–EUI5. With this, LeEco achieved a historical 9-channel direct stream allowing the user to watch 9 games at the same time. More than that, it can also support watching one game, but with 9 different camera angles!
A few interesting things to note here are the fact that LeEco seems to have very boldly gone with the 820 processor and a whopping 6 GB RAM on the Le Max 2, also they have taken a courageous step of going without the 3.5mm audio socket and moving to USB Type C cable for audio. While this is the way forward and even Apple is said to be going this way. LeEco seems to be taking disruption up a notch here. The loss free audio format is also key step forward.
