4. Samsung Galaxy S8
Flipkart is also offering a handsome discount on Samsung’s Galaxy S8 as a part of its Big Billion Days sale. For a limited time, you’ll now be able to snag the Galaxy S8 for just Rs. 28,990.
It’s an impressive deal considering the fact that it usually goes for Rs. 49,990. Though the Galaxy S8 is technically almost 2 years old, it’s still worth picking up for its beautiful glass design and stunning Infinity display – which my colleague Karthik loves.
