Flipkart delivered a phone that looks like an iPhone 11 Pro, but actually runs Android. This is not the first time this e-commerce site has goofed up with a delivery.

Here’s another case of Flipkart delivering something other than what was ordered. A report has surfaced online about how Flipkart delivered a fake phone to a Bengaluru man.


Bengaluru-based Rajani Kant Kushwah ordered an Apple iPhone 11 Pro from Flipkart. He paid the entire amount (Rs 93,900 after discount), and was expecting a swift delivery. But instead of getting the smartphone of his dreams, this ordeal turned out to be a nightmare.

On opening the box, Kushwah found a device that looks like an iPhone, but isn’t one. The triple rear cameras were essentially just a sticker, IBTimes reports. And though the device looks like an iPhone XS, it actually runs a different operating system with Android apps on it.

Flipkart delivery goof-ups

This is far from the first instance of a customer ordering something on Flipkart, and getting something else altogether. Earlier this month we reported about Kannur-based Vishnu Suresh’s ordeal. Suresh ordered a Rs 27,500 worth camera, but got a box of tiles instead. In addition to pieces of tiles, the box also contained the camera’s manual and warranty card.

Similarly, last year, a Mumbai-based engineer ordered an Apple iPhone 8 from Flipkart and got soap bar instead. Last year, actor Nakkhul similarly ordered a new Apple iPhone XS Max from Flipkart. But he too was duped when he received a fake iPhone instead.
