Amazon India and Flipkart are currently running two major e-commerce sales right now, offering customers a plethora of discounts on most products of their choice. Both Amazon India and Flipkart offer deals on mobile phones, one of the most popular products in such sales. However, considering everything usually sells on discounts in India anyway, not all deals seem that great. Nonetheless, there are several hidden gems out there if you start combing the two sites for discounts. Here's our picks of the best mobile phone deals in Amazon India and Flipkart sales right now.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is one of the most popular smartphones in India today thanks to its competitive specifications and affordable price.
