Unless you've been living under a rock, you'd be aware of the fact that Flipkart is hosting the Big Shopping Day sale starting this Sunday. The home-grown e-commerce giant, for obvious reasons, gave a sneak peak of what to expect from the sale and interestingly enough, One Plus 3 was listed for a price under Rs. 20,000. Crazy, right?
Hold on, isn't OnePlus 3 supposed to be an Amazon exclusive in India? Yes, that's right! Then, how is Flipkart planning to sell OnePlus 3 you may ask? It seems like you're not the only person to be wondering.
Carl Pei, CEO and Co-Founder of OnePlus has tweeted to Sachin Bansal, Co-Founder of Flipkart, asking for an explanation. His exact tweet read "@_sachinbansal brother, what's this? We're exclusive with @amazonIN."
It still remains to be seen what Sachin Bansal would say since he hasn't responded to Pei's tweet yet.
For those who are not aware, OnePlus 3 is priced at Rs. 27,999 and is exclusively available on Amazon India. However, as seen on Flipkart's home page, the e-tailer is planning to sell it under Rs. 20,000.
We are not sure if the home-grown e-commerce giant is planning to offer cahsbacks or if it's shipping the handsets directly from China. It's also likely that it may sell refurbished handsets at such huge discounts.
All said and done, these are merely speculations and we don't exactly know how Flipkart is planning to sell the OnePlus 3 at such low price. We will keep you posted as soon as something surfaces online.
