Shoppers, who happened to visit Flipkart on Friday, might be surprised with the huge sale banner of the company for its “Big Shopping Day Sale”, hinting the Amazon-exclusive OnePlus 3 to available with a discounted price. Now, Flipkart has confirmed that, OnePlus 3 will be presented during its “Big Shopping Day Sale” only at Rs. 18,999, which is Rs. 9,000 lower than the price of Amazon India. However, apart from the detailed advertisement of Flipkart, the confusion about the availability of OnePlus 3 is still going on, as the phone is tagged with a jingle “Out Of Stock”.

The sale of OnePlus 3 is commencing at 4PM. The OnePlus 3 is only six months old, and will be available in limited editions on Flipkart. As the launch price of OnePlus 3 was Rs 27,999, the price tag of Rs 18,999 seems like a worth-grabbing deal. However, as Flipkart hasn’t clarified whether the OnePlus 3 really is being sold on its e-com site or not. But, as the deal is coming from third-party sellers to Flipkart without any official warranty, for now, it is quite hard to be assured about anything.

More Sales to Check Out

Except of OnePlus 3, Flipkart also has added some of the most excellent offers on smartphones, smartwatches and other electronics to its Big Shopping Say Sale. Under the sale bonanza of Flipkart, shoppers can grab the Apple iPhone 7 at Rs 5,000 off. The 32GB variant of iPhone 7 is tagged with Rs 55,000, while the 128GB variant is priced at Rs 65,000 and 256GB variant with Rs 75,000. Moreover, Flipkart is also giving up to Rs 20,000 discount on exchanging the used smartphones.

Among other great deals, Flipkart is giving up to Rs 25,000 off on Google Pixel under the exchange offer. Similarly, Xiaomi’s Mi 5 is being sold for Rs 19,999, the iPhone 6 16GB model for Rs 29,990, Lenovo PHAB for Rs 10,999, Samsung Galaxy On8 for Rs 14,400, Galaxy On Nxt only at Rs 16,900, Lenovo Vibe K5 Note at Rs 12,999, and Asus ZenFone 2 Laser only at Rs. 11, 499.

Amazon Exclusive OnePlus 3 goes on sale on Flipkart

Aside from these sales, the Flipkart has amused its shoppers with the banner of selling the OnePlus 3 smartphone with a hefty discount during its big day sale. But unexpectedly, the banner and advertisement of Flipkart have come up with a great surprise, as the CEO of OnePlus tweeted asking ‘how Flipkart can sale OnePlus 3 as the model is exclusive to Amazon”.

While the shoppers of Flipkart are eagerly waiting to grab the premium OnePlus 3 at a discounted price range, the CEO and Co-Founder of OnePlus, Carl Pei has taken to Twitter to express his surprise as the brand is exclusive to Amazon India.

OnePlus is carrying on with a legal pact with Amazon India for selling its handsets only via the retail outlets of Amazon. Not to my surprise, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei seems not to be so much pleased with this promotion.

As mentioned above, the teaser of OnePlus 3 sale on Flipkart’s Big Shopping Day Sale has come up with a big surprise for the owner of OnePlus. To confirm this news, OnePlus Co-Founder Carl Pei too, tweeted to the Executive Chairman and Co-Founder of Flipkart, Mr. Sachin Bansal, questioning – “Brother, What’s this? We’re exclusive with Amazon.”
