The e-commerce sale season is on with Amazon’ Prime day celebrations slated to begin from July 16 at 12 noon, and Flipkart’s Big Shopping Days scheduled to begin the same day as well. Brands will be eyeing to sell a lot of their products on this day, as customers generally tend to go on a shopping spree by going gaga over deals on most sale days.
Samsung doesn’t want to be left behind either and has announced an exciting offer for its Galaxy Note 8 smartphone. With new leaks of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 surfacing online every day, we’d assume Samsung would want to clear majority of its stocks of the Note 8 before bringing in the new successor to the Note lineup.
The current selling price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is Rs. 55,900. Customers exchanging their old smartphone will be entitled to get an extra Rs. 10,000 off. For instance, let’s say that the exchange value for your smartphone is Rs. 5,000, you will get a complete exchange value of Rs. 5,000 + Rs. 10,000 which seems like a great deal. On top of this, HDFC bank cardholders will also receive an extra Rs. 4,000 cashback along with No Cost EMI for up to 9 months. Summing up all the offers, the total cost of the smartphone comes down to Rs. 41,900, which will further reduce depending on the exchange value of your current smartphone.
For a price of Rs. 41,900, you get Samsung’s last year’s flagship chipset, the Exynos 8895, along with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, dual 12MP rear cameras, a 3300mAh battery, IP68 rating, a 6.3-inch super AMOLED Infinity display with a 2K resolution, which is arguably one of the best displays you could find on a smartphone, and of course, the S Pen functionality, something that the Note series is known for.
At a similar price, other options include 8+128GB version of the OnePlus 6 which is a much newer smartphone with some updated internals. You can also get the OnePlus 6 for Rs. 34,999 if you settle for the base 6+64GB variant, with the effective price being Rs. 2,000 lesser for Citibank cardholders. The 8+256GB variant of the Asus Zenfone 5Z is available at a similar price as well, selling for Rs. 36,999, with the base 6+64GB option for Rs. 29,999, with an extra Rs. 3000 off or ICICI Bank cardholders, reducing the effective price to Rs. 26,999.
If you’re in the market to buy a new smartphone in the 30-40k segment, you can consider the Galaxy Note 8, but there will be tons of more offers and deals across various e-commerce platforms during the sale, so we suggest you stay tuned for our coverage of the best deals during sale days.
