It s raining discounts on smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy S8 debuted yesterday, but if you can t wait for the beautiful flagship to make it to India, you can make the switch to some readily available options on Amazon India. The e-commerce platform is hosting yet another mobile carnival where it offering exciting discounts and exchange offers on popular smartphones along with mobile accessories. Before the carnival ends tonight, here are some of the enticing deals you could consider on smartphones such as the OnePlus 3T, iPhone 7, and Xiaomi Redmi 4A among others.
Last week, Flipkart introduced its upgrade offer with flat five percent discount on the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The e-commerce giant is also offering exchange discounts of up to Rs 25,100. Amazon India is also running its own promotions, offering flat Rs 10,001 off on the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models, with prices now starting at Rs 49,999.
Even though smartwatches are simply meant to be connected devices that display notifications and alerts, they have become more of a luxury accessory that one can adorn. Among the available options, there is Pebble with its range of simple, no-frills smartwatches. Last year in May, the company brought its range of smartwatches in India, with prices starting at Rs 5,999. Now, as Amazon India kicks off its three-day Great Indian Sale, the prices of Pebble smartwatches have been slashed by up to 60 percent.
With Christmas around the corner, Amazon India is offering up to Rs 2,000 flat discount, and exciting exchange offers on Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 Play smartphones. The special discount runs from December 20 to mid-January 2017. Buyers can also avail 10 percent cashback on buying the smartphones using Standard Chartered bank credit cards. On making electronic payments using credit / debit cards and net banking, Amazon India is also giving Rs 1,000 cashback as Amazon Gift Card, which buyers can use to purchase anything on the e-commerce portal.
As Flipkart gears up for its Big Shopping Days sale between December 18 and 21, the e-commerce giant surprised everyone with one of its teasers featuring the OnePlus 3. After hinting that the smartphone will be available for under Rs 20,000, Flipkart has now updated the banner with more details. OnePlus 3 will go on sale on December 18 at 4PM, and you ll be able to purchase it for as low as Rs 18,999. While that is awesome, there s a catch.
Flipkart's current relationship status with OnePlus seems to be complicated at the moment. The Indian online retailer today announced it would sell the OnePlus 3 for less than Rs 20,000 during its Big Shopping Days that starts from December 18, taking many by surprise. However, now OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has publicly called out Flipkart's Chairman and former CEO, Sachin Bansal, over the stunt. It seems that either Flipkart went behind OnePlus' back to secure One Plus 3 stocks or Pei didn't get the memo.
