The Pixel 2 and the Galaxy S8 were the two flagship offerings from last year that went head-on to compete in the premium smartphone category. You can now grab these phones for the cost of a budget-flagship device through Flipkart’s Big Shopping Days’ discounted price.
The Pixel is arguably still the best camera smartphone available on the market right now. Both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL feature a single camera setup on the back which are backed by Google’s AI prowess. If you are someone who likes to stay updated with software updates, the Pixel phones will be the very first in line to get the latest Android build as well.
The Pixel 2 is currently retailing for a price of Rs. 42,999 and Rs. 51,999 for the 64GB and 128GB variant respectively. Its larger sibling (Pixel 2 XL) which features a more modern bezel-less display is up for grabs for an asking price of Rs. 54,999 and Rs. 63,999 for the 64GB and 128GB variants respectively. To sweeten the deal, Flipkart is also offering a Rs. 8000 cashback on the Pixel 2 and Rs. 10,000 cashback on the Pixel 2 XL if you have an HDFC Bank credit or debit card. The effective prices then come down to:
- Pixel 2 (64GB) – Rs. 34,999
- Pixel 2 (128GB) – Rs. 43,999
- Pixel 2 XL (64GB) – Rs. 53,999
- Pixel 2 XL (128GB) – Rs. 62,999
The next smartphone which is having a really lucrative deal is the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the S8+. If you are someone who is on the edge considering the rumors surrounding the display of the Google Pixel 2, Samsung’s offerings have you covered on that front. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ have a very futuristic looking bezel-less display which melts along the edges. The display is a Quad HD+ Super AMOLED panel which has a very crisp pixel count of 570 PPI.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is currently retailing for Rs. 37,990 for the 64GB variant in Midnight Black. Its larger variant, the Galaxy S8 Plus is up for grabs for Rs. 43,990 for the 64GB variant in Midnight Black. Even though these are last year flagships by Samsung, they are still pretty good and at this price, the deal makes total sense.
