LeEco is trying to move from a Chinese smartphone maker to a globally recognized technology company. The company is trying to solidify its entrance to the US market with the launch of two new products, a couple of smart bikes powered by Android OS. Named LeEco Smart Road Bike and LeEco Smart Mountain Bike, both models were announced at the ongoing Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Both bikes run BikeOS, LeEco’s customized Android 6.0 Marshmallow. LeEco Smart Road Bike and LeEco Smart Mountain Bike both have features you would expect to find on regular bikes plus a 4-inch touchscreen.
The bikes are powered by a 6,000mAh battery and there’s a Snapdragon 410 chipset to get things rolling. The smart bikes pack useful sensors like GPS, accelerometer, compass, barometer and light level.
The electronic parts of the bikes are protected from water and dust with IP54 rating. The bigger LeEco Smart Mountain Bike weighs 26.9 pounds while the Smart Road Bike weighs 18.5 pounds. Both are equipped with GPS navigation using Here Maps, two way communication with nearby LeEco Smart Bikes, music playback and ride logging.
LeEco is yet to announce pricing but sales is set to commence in the second quarter of 2017 in the US.
