Big discounts on iPhone 11, iPhone SE, and iPhone XR are live on Amazon Great Indian Festival and Flipkart's Dussehra offers. But the deals seem to be slipping away, fast. Apple cut prices of the iPhone 11 on the India store as soon as the iPhone 12 series was launched late on October 14. But Amazon had already teased a better price for the iPhone 11 64GB variant. Meanwhile, Flipkart has offers on both the iPhone XR and the iPhone SE. Here's a roundup of the best deals on iPhone models right now.
Amazon Great Indian Festival seems to have an upper hand at conjuring up iPhone 11 deals. The iPhone 11 64GB is now available on Amazon for Rs. 49,999. The iPhone 11 128GB is priced at Rs. 54,999. Amazon is also offering a 5 percent cashback for Prime members who use an Amazon Pay ICICI bank credit card. Flipkart has no matching offers.
In comparison, the Apple India Store has slashed the official price of the iPhone 11 64GB to Rs. 54,900. Apple was earlier offering a pair of AirPods with Charging Case (Rs. 14,999) along with the iPhone 11 for its Diwali offer on October 17, but the offer is not running any longer.
Amazon had also matched the exact iPhone 11 + AirPods with Charging Case bundle offer at Rs. 54,900, with HDFC cashback. But it retracted the offer within the first few hours of the Great Indian Festival sale, which started with early access to Amazon Prime members at midnight on October 15. It opened for non-Prime customers the next day. The iPhone 11 has a 6.1-inch (828x1792 pixels) Liquid Retina HD LCD and runs on Apple's A13 Bionic chip.
The iPhone 11 Pro, on the other hand, has a much better price on Flipkart. The 64GB variant is being offered at Rs. 79,999. The iPhone 11 Pro has a 6.5-inch (1125x2436 pixels) Super Retina XDR OLED display and the same processor as iPhone 11.
The Flipkart Big Billion Days sale, which started with early access for Flipkart Plus on October 14 midnight and opened to all visitors till October 21, had listed the iPhone SE (2020) 64GB for Rs. 25,999, offering a big discount on its official price of Rs. 42,500. The phone is now priced at Rs. 34,999. Flipkart is also offering an additional instant discount of up to 10 percent for Kotak, HSBC debit and credit cardholders (capped at Rs. 1,500 for the phone). The shifting price seems to be the effect of neither Amazon nor the Apple India store offering a comparable price. The iPhone SE 128GB is listed on Flipkart for Rs. 39,999. The phone comes with a 4.7-inch (750x1334 pixels) LCD and runs on Apple's A13 Bionic chip.
Flipkart Big Billion Days sale also offered the iPhone XR at its lowest ever price of Rs. 37,999 for the 64GB variant and Rs. 42,999 for the 128GB variant. The phones are now priced at Rs 44,999 and Rs 49,999, respectively for Flipkart's Dusshera offers. Amazon Great Indian Festival sale doesn't have a comparable offer. The phone has a 6.1-inch (1792x828 pixels) Liquid Retina HD LCD and is powered by the two-generation old A12 Bionic chip.
The AirPods with Charging Case are available at a discounted price of Rs. 11,999. The AirPods Pro with Wireless Charging Case are at Rs.19,999, down from its official price of Rs. 24,900. Both are available at their best prices on Amazon.
