During the sale, which kick-started on May 14 and will end on May 18 midnight, Flipkart is said to offer up to 80 per cent discount on smartphones. On the other hand, Flipkart has also announced a special deal on Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. The sale for Redmi Note 4 opened at 12 noon today.

The Apple iPhone 6s 32GB is available for Rs. 33,999 (MRP Rs. 47,999) on Flipkart's Big 10 Sale.

The 32GB variant of the iPhone 7 is now available at Rs. 54,999.

While Amazon's "Great Indian Sale" is about to culminate, its arch rival Flipkart's "Big 10 Sale" has just started. That's exactly what the Flipkart is offering. The 128GB and 256GB iPhone 7 have gotten even bigger cuts and are now available at Rs 50999 (Rs 19001 lower) and Rs 61999 (Rs 18001 lower), respectively. The country's biggest e-commerce marketplace is also providing additional exchange discounts and instant cashbacks on the certain payment modes.

Apple iPhone 7 32GB variant is available for Rs 43,999, a 26 percent off on the original price Rs 60,000. Although the phone can be bought for an amount under Rs 20,000, it must be remembered that the device had been launched in 2013. Flipkart is also offering the 32 GB internal storage and 3 GB RAM variant of Moto M for Rs. 13,999 after a flat Rs 2,000 off and up to Rs 13,000 off while exchanging an old smartphone.

Flipkart is also offering up to 70 percent off on audio devices, along with discounts on consumer electronics. While the 32GB memory variant of Google XL in the colours black and silver are available with a discount of 19 percent (price: Rs 53,999), the 128GB memory variant is available for Rs 62,999 with a discount of 17 percent. While the discount may not seem huge, the added exchange offer can be bundled to make things sweeter. Flipkart is offering flat 13% discount on the latest iPad device and it is now available for Rs 24,900. In addition to the upfront discount, buyback offers are also available, where you can exchange your old smartphone and get up to Rs 20,000 off.

It can only be speculated if an exchange for Samsung Galaxy S users will be rolled out within the coming few hours. Vivo V5 and V5 Plus gets a price cut of Rs 4,000. One could also avail up to Rs 11,000 off on exchange coupled with No Cost EMI options.

Another offering from Lenovo, the Phab 2 and Phab 2 Plus are also available at a flat discount of Rs 3,000. These Oppo and Vivo phones are protected under Flipkart's Buyback Guarantee offer. Under the sale, the Samsung Galaxy On5 is now available at Rs 6,490, and the Samsung Galaxy On7 at Rs 7,990. Flipkart is also offering up to Rs 6,500 off on Moto E3 Power on an exchange deal. Flipkart is conducting the "Big 10 Sale" marking the occasion of its 10th anniversary. The 128GB variant of the iPhone 7 is available at Rs. 63,999 and the 256GB variant is available at Rs. 85,990.
