Sale season is here and it is the best time to buy a new iPhone. Flipkart and Amazon are offering deals on almost the entire range of iPhones sold by Apple in India. Flipkart’s Big Billion Days sale has enticing offers on the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 13, and the old but still capable iPhone 11. Amazon is also offering discounts on iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and the iPhone 13 Pro series in its Great Indian Festival sale.
Here are the best iPhone offers across both the Big Billion Days sale and Great Indian Festival sale:
First, we have the iPhone 11, which usually retails for around Rs 42,000. Flipkart is offering the smartphone for an enticing sum of Rs 29,990. The 64GB variant of the phone is listed at Rs 32,990 and there is an additional discount of Rs 1,500 for Axis Bank/ICICI Bank holders. On top of that, there is an extra Rs 1500 discount for ICICI credit card transactions.
At this price, the iPhone 11 is a great option for those looking for a solid entry point into the iOS ecosystem. While quite old, the iPhone 11 can still hold its ground in 2022. With the A13 Bionic chipset, dual 12MP rear cameras, 5.8-inch Super Retina XDR display, and Face ID, the smartphone still packs quite a punch. However, it must be noted that you will miss out on certain features like 5G support and an AMOLED display.
iPhone 12/ 12 Mini
The iPhone 12 is still a very capable and probably the best bang-for-your-buck iPhone you can buy in India right now. The 5G smartphone is powered by Apple’s A14 Bionic chipset – which is powerful enough for most users and looks almost identical to the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13. Additionally, it has years of software support ahead of it, capable cameras, and a bright and vivid 6.1-inch Super Retina OLED display.
While the iPhone 12 usually retails for around Rs 55,000, the 64GB variant has been listed on Amazon for Rs 42,999 sans exchange and bank offers. SBI card holders can save up to Rs 1,500. The 128GB variant of the iPhone 12 on the other hand is listed for Rs 47,999. Users can use their SBI card to add a further discount of Rs 1,500, which makes the effective price of the iPhone 12 128GB Rs 46,499.
Those who want a feature-rich and powerful compact smartphone can also take a look at the iPhone 12 Mini. It features a 5.4-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display, dual 12MP rear cameras, and the A14 Bionic chipset. The smartphone is usually listed for around Rs 55,000 but will be available at just Rs 33,990 (inclusive of ICICI Bank offers) during the Flipkart Big Billion Days sale.
2021’s iPhone 13 is powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic chipset. Compared to the iPhone 12, it features a brighter 6.1-inch Super Retina OLED display, better battery life, a slightly smaller (around 20 per cent) display notch, and a dual 12MP rear camera setup with bigger sensors. The 5G smartphone can usually be found for around Rs 69,000 but will be available for Rs 52,990 during Flipkart’s Big Billion Days sale. The base 128GB variant of the phone is listed at Rs 54,990 and there is an additional discount of Rs 1,500 for Axis Bank/ICICI Bank holders. On top of that, there is an extra Rs 500 discount for ICICI credit card transactions. The 256GB variant and the 512GB variant are also available at an effective price of Rs 62,990 and Rs 82,990.
At the time of writing, iPhone 13 was not in stock on Amazon. At these prices, the iPhone 13 is a great option for those looking to upgrade from an old iPhone like the iPhone 11, XR, or XS.
iPhone 13 Pro/ 13 Pro Max
The iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max are known for their stellar battery life. Both smartphones are powered by an advanced variant of the A15 Bionic with a 5-core GPU and feature a stunning design with matte glass backs, stainless steel bodies, and flat edges. Compared to the regular iPhone 13, the cameras are where the 13 Pro series offers the most significant step up – with wider apertures, a LiDAR scanner for night-mode portrait shots, improved ultra-wide low-light performance, and a 6x telephoto sensor.
Usually, the iPhone 13 Pro starts at Rs 1,19,900 and the iPhone 13 Pro Max starts at Rs 1,29,900. During the Flipkart Big Billion Days sale, the 13 Pro will be available for Rs 91,990, and the 13 Pro Max for Rs 1,01,990. These prices include Axis Bank and ICICI Bank offers.
Amazon on the other hand is offering the iPhone 13 Pro for Rs 99,900 and the 13 Pro Max for Rs 1,09,900. These prices are sans exchange and bank offers. SBI card users can shave Rs 1,500 off the offering price of both iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
