Snapdeal is trying to take on Amazon India and Flipkart with its own branded smartphones. While Amazon India has 10.or and Flipkart markets its devices under the Billion brand, Snapdeal has now joined hands with GOME to sell its own devices. GOME is a mobile brand based out of Hong Kong, and is getting Snapdeal as a launchpad in the country. The first two devices being launched in India as part of this new partnership are the GOME C7 and GOME C7 Note. As one would expect, both these devices are budget Android smartphones aimed at a segment where the sales is highest.
While the GOME C7 and GOME C7 Note from Snapdeal ship with basic hardware for the budget segment, they do one feature that would appeal to those who care about privacy over everything else. GOME says on the C7 and C7 Note, the caller ID is restricted and will be shown to user of the device only when they use Face ID to see the details. It is an interesting way to prevent anyone from looking at your screen and knowing who is calling you. The phones are being dubbed as the most private smartphone by the company.
