Another day, another Flipkart sale. The Big Shopping Days sale 2018 is now open to all users after last night's three-hour early access for Plus members. The Flipkart sale brings back some of the best deals from the festive season sales held earlier this year and a few new offers as well. Flipkart has tied up with HDFC Bank to offer 10 percent instant discount to the bank's credit and debit card users. In case you missed out during the festive season sales, here's another opportunity to grab some exciting deals before the end of this year.
Flipkart offers includes a large number of deals on mobile phones, electronics, appliances, and more. But not all of them are worth your time and money. We've scanned through a lot of these deals to get you the best deals that are available right now.
Here's our pick for the best deals available on the first day of Flipkart sale so far:
Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1
The ZenFone Max Pro M1 has gone on sale every single time Flipkart has organized a sale this year since the phone was launched. Currently available at a starting price of Rs. 9,999 (MRP Rs. 10,999), the ZenFone Max Pro M1 promises a value-for-money deal. We'd recommend you get the 6GB RAM, 64GB storage variant that's down to Rs. 13,999 (MRP Rs. 14,999) as part of Flipkart offers if you're keen on playing most modern games. The phone ships with a 5.99-inch full-HD+ display and a dual camera setup at the rear and is powered by the Snapdragon 636 SoC. It includes a massive 5,000mAh battery that should be good enough to last an entire day. It's worth mentioning here that the ZenFone Max Pro M2 is set to launch in India next week, but if you're not too keen on spending full price on a new phone, this may still be a good option.
Price: Starting from Rs. 9,999
In case you missed the festive season sales, you've got another chance to grab the Xiaomi Poco F1 at a discount. All variants of the phone are currently available at a discount during the sale. The 6GB RAM, 64GB storage variant is down to Rs. 19,999 (MRP Rs. 21,999) while the 8GB RAM, 256GB storage option is available at Rs. 25,999 (MRP Rs. 30,999). If you're looking for high-end specifications at a decent enough price, the Poco F1 is a great pick. When we tested the Poco F1, we found it offered a great battery life and an excellent value for money, but the camera struggles when it comes to low-light photos.
Price: Starting from Rs. 19,999
