E-commerce giant Flipkart which recently held the Big Billion Sale from 13th October through 17th October, claims to have generated over $200 million in mobile phone sales. Most of their sales have been in the 4G category.
With phone users demanding faster browsing speeds, 4G services perfectly fit customers’ needs. 190 out of every 250 phones Flipkart sold during the event were 4G-enabled smartphones. Some of the top devices that the e-commerce site sold during the event include;
- Samsung J Series smartphones.
- Moto X and Moto G3.
- Lenovo K3 Note.
The increase in sales has been immense due to 4G smartphones finally being available under Rs. 10,000. Over 6 million units have been sold during the five days.
The affordable devices that are 4G enabled were launched approximately ten months ago. Still, Flipkart’s offers boosted 4G-enabled smartphones from 2 million devices to 8 million devices in just five days.
