For the next few days, both Flipkart and Amazon will be holding their respective Summer sales, offering some exciting discounts and offers on electronics, particularly smartphones. Flipkart has kicked off its Summer Carnival Sale, which will take place between May 4 to May 7. The Flipkart sale sees some popular phones on discount as well as other electronics such as gaming consoles, tablets and smart devices.
While you can check out all the offers on Flipkart, here’s a quick look at the top 5 deals we think will be worth your time.
Realme 2 Pro: Rs 10,990
The Relame 3 Pro might be out now, but that doesn’t stop the Realme 2 Pro from being a great buy at Rs 10,999. Launched at Rs 13,990, the Realme 2 Pro is now being sold at a flat discount of Rs 10,990 and the best part is that it is on open sale. At its new price, the Realme 2 Pro is still one of the most affordable phones running on a Snapdragon 660 chipset. It also offers an attractive Dewdrop display and a long-lasting battery life, among other things.
iPhone XR: Rs 59,900
The iPhone XR has gotten slightly cheaper since its launch. It has been available for Rs 59,900 for a while now, so the Flipkart sale might not look any different. However, customers can avail an extra 10 per cent instant discount on purchasing the iPhone XR via a HDFC Bank debit or credit card, bringing the effective price down to Rs 53,910. The iPhone XR still remains the best iPhone for most people, and we explain why in our long-term review.
Nokia 6.1 Plus: Rs 12,999
HMD Global is yet to launch its newest phones in India, but if you’re desperately looking for an affordable Nokia phone then you should consider the Nokia 6.1 Plus at Rs 12,999. The phone is available at Rs 3,000 cheaper than its original launch price. The Nokia 6.1 Plus continues to offer an elegant all-glass design that looks premium for its price. It also runs on a stock Android Pie OS and offers a smooth performance thanks to a Snapdragon 636 chipset under the hood.
Playstation 4 Slim 500GB: Rs 22,190
This is probably one of the best deals you’ll find on a Playstation 4 right now. The PS4 Slim model with 500GB of internal storage is available for as low as Rs 22,190. This price includes three game titles as well – Uncharted 4, Horizon Zero Dawn and Gran Turismo Sport. 500GB storage does have its limitations, but it’s worth it if you’re an intermittent player who isn’t looking to purchase a lot of games at a time.
Apple Watch Series 3: Rs 23,900
If you’ve been waiting for a good fitness smartwatch, Apple is offering the Apple Watch Series 3 at its lowest price yet. Note that you should be an iPhone user to really enjoy the benefits of the Apple Watch Series 3. During the Flipkart Summer Carnival Sale, the Apple Watch Series 3 is listed starting at Rs 23,900, although the discounted pricing was not reflected on the platform at the time of writing this story.
