Today LeEco has unveiled a new device, but this one isn't a smartphone. Instead, the Chinese company has decided to make its entrance into the increasingly ever more crowded action camera market. Just a few days ago Xiaomi-backed Yi outed its latest product in this category, and LeEco clearly wants to compete with Yi's cameras as well as GoPro.
The LeEco action camera is called Liveman C1, and it can shoot 4K video at 30fps. That puts it on equal footing to the original Yi 4K device, but it can't match the new Yi 4K+'s 60fps recording abilities.
The Liveman C1 has a 16 MP camera sensor, 140-degree field of view, and a G-sensor in order to support automatic recording when movement is sensed. A 1.8-inch touchscreen will serve as the viewfinder, and the camera has Wi-Fi built-in, a microSD card slot, a micro HDMI port, and a 1,050 mAh battery.
In the box you get the camera itself, a waterproof case that lets you shoot at up to 40m underwater, two self adhesive mounts, a bunch of extensions, and a USB cable for charging. The Liveman C1 will become available in China before the Spring Festival on January 28. Pricing hasn't been announced yet unfortunately.
