Premium smartphones are usually launched at very high prices and it becomes quite difficult for tech lovers to buy them instantly. They had to wait for discounts and deals where the effective prices are feasible and not a burden. One such sale, the Big Saving Days of Flipkart, is here, and it has brought with it some serious offers. Check this article to know more about which premium smartphones are getting the best deals so you can target them this year.
Apple iPhone 14
If you are thinking of buying the latest iPhone, then this is the perfect time to get your hands on it from Flipkart. At launch, the iPhone 14 was priced at ₹ 79,900, but with a discount of ₹13,901, you can purchase the device at ₹65,999, which is the highest price drop yet. The device weighs only 172 g and comes with an aluminum frame sandwiched between Corning Gorilla Glass. It has a dual-e-sim setup with IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. The iPhone 14 comes with an immersive 6.1 in Super Retina XDR OLED display, which can get up to a peak brightness of 1200 nits. Considering the innovations of Apple, a 60 Hz refresh rate is a bit backward, but the device supports both Dolby Vision and HDR10. The iPhone 14 is powered by the Apple A15 Bionic chip and runs on iOS 16 (upgradable to iOS 16.3). The base variant will give you 128 GB internal storage and 6 GB RAM, and is also equipped with stereo speakers, which are decent. Be it low-light photography or taking a 4K video at 60 FPS, the dual camera setup of 12 MP wide and 12 MP ultrawide is probably one of the best in the market. The availability of emergency SOS via satellite connectivity is probably one of the most advantageous features of the device. The 3279 mAh battery is decent and can be charged 50% within 30 minutes. If you want a bigger display and better battery life then you can also look at the iPhone 14 Plus, which is also getting a ₹15,901 rebate and is available for ₹73,999.
Samsung Galaxy S23
The Samsung Galaxy S23 got launched with the S23 Plus and S23 Ultra in February at the Galaxy Unpacked event. Well, new releases mostly do not get heavy discounts, but that is not the case for the Samsung Galaxy S23. The device is already enjoying a ₹12000 price drop from its release price, which was ₹95,999. But if you have an HDFC credit or debit card or can get hold of any, you get an extra ₹5000 deduction, making the effective price ₹74,999. The device comes with a 6.1 dynamic AMOLED 2x display and has a 120 Hz refresh rate and a whopping 1750 nits of brightness. Along with IP68 certification, the device’s armor aluminum frame is scratch resistant and can withstand tougher drops. The device comes out of the box with the most powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and runs on Android 13 with a patch of One UI 5.1. The triple camera module with 50 MP wide, 10 MP telephoto, and 12 MP ultrawide can easily compete with any premium range of smartphones. The 3900 mAh battery’s performance has improved from its predecessor, but the 25 W charger is a real bummer from Samsung.
Google Pixel 7
Want to go on an adventure with a clean Android experience with the latest Google Pixel? Flipkart has got you covered with its deal on the Google Pixel 7. The device was launched for ₹59,999 and it is getting an instant rebate of ₹3000, making the price ₹56,999. Now with an SBI, Axis, and HDFC debit or credit card, you further get ₹7000 off, making the effective price ₹49,999. If you have such a card, then it’s good, and if not, try to borrow from someone. The Google Pixel 7 comes with a beautiful 6.3 in AMOLED display that supports HDR10+ and a 90 Hz refresh rate. Weighing 197 g, the device comes with 1400 nits of peak brightness and IP68 certification. The device has the Tensor G2 processor under its hood and comes out of the box with Android 13. The dual camera setup of 50 MP wide and 12 MP ultrawide can be described in a single word, which is “terrific”, and the experience is further enhanced with the AI features. The 4355 mAh battery is average at best, but it supports both wireless and reverse wireless charging.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3
Wish to buy a clamshell model? But unfortunately, you do not have a demanding budget. Worry not; get the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 at a whopping price of ₹45,999. It was launched at a price of ₹95,999 but Flipkart slashed the price by a significant amount to make it ₹49,999. You get a further ₹3000 off using any debit or credit card. Yes, the device is more than a year old, but it has all the features you could ask for in a clamshell model. Weighing only 183 g, it is durable enough, with IP68 certification, scratch resistance, and the ability to handle tough drops. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 comes with a fantastic 6.7 foldable Dynamic AMOLED 2X display and has a 120 Hz refresh rate and 1200 nits of peak brightness. Equipped with a Snapdragon 888 5G, the device has Android 11 (upgradable to Android 13) with a patch of One UI 5.1. Both the camera setup, which includes 12 MP wide and 12 MP ultrawide and the 3300 mAh battery are average, just like you would expect in foldables.
