Leagoo Mobile, owned by Shenzhen-based OTEDA Technology Co. Ltd and OTEDA Holding Group, officially entered into the Sri Lankan market by partnering with Natural Wonders (Pvt.) Ltd.
OTEDA established the Leagoo brand in April 2014 and it has gained a sizeable customer base very quickly due to its focus on the entry-level and mid-range markets. The company focuses on value for money and its phones come with good build quality coupled with unique designs.
Leagoo phones are now available in more than 50 countries. Recently at Mobile New Force Summit 2016 it was adjudged as the China Best Mobile and Overseas Best Selling Brand of the Year.
Leagoo introduced some of its highest-selling mobile phones at the launch, which was held recently at the Oak Room, Cinnamon Grand Hotel. These phones will give a new experience to the Sri Lankan consumers.
Speaking at the event, Leagoo CEO Johnson Zhuang said, “We are excited to be in Sri Lanka, which has a tremendous potential and we look forward to achieving great strides in Sri Lanka. Our three main objectives are to create an international brand, create an ecology based on mobile Internet ecosphere and create an open incubation platform. LEAGOO has designed, produced and distributed over eight million smartphones to users over 96 countries in the past three years.”
