The Amazon Great Indian Festival Sale is underway and there are some notable deals in the smartphone category. In the past few days, Amazon has hosted some massive discounts on popular phones across various prices. While the company is yet to release the actual numbers, it has reached out to the media, stating higher sales numbers for Apple’s iPhone models. Along with the iPhone models, many brands launched new products during the sale period.
Out of all the products, it is the iPhone that sold in high numbers in the first few days. In fact, Amazon has sold more iPhones on the first day of the Great Indian Festival Sale than the entire sale period during last year’s sale. Amazon has not listed the names of the models that made the high sales possible. However, it seems that the high discounts on the iPhone 11 could have pushed the sales.
Ahead of the Great Indian Festival Sale, Amazon detailed the discounts on some of the newest iPhone models. The iPhone 11 sold at Rs 47,999 for the base 64GB variant during the sale. Currently, the price has increased to Rs 49,999 for the base variant. The iPhone 11 was one of Apple’s flagship until a month ago and kept selling at Rs 68,300 for its base variant. The high discount on the iPhone 11 made it an appealing deal on Amazon.
