Infinix Mobiles, a leader in value-for-worth smartphone category across emerging markets, has announced a 3-day long ‘Sales Festival’ on Flipkart. To be held during April 11-13, the fest will offer Smart 2 and HOTS3X smartphones from Infinix at massively discounted rates. Moreover, the brand has also provided an Android OS upgrade organically within 7 months of the initial product launch. This is a significant departure from the overall industry scenario on software upgrades, where according to a recent report published in May 2018, about 94% of Android smartphones are still running on Android 7.
For the 3 days, buyers will be able to order the phones from Flipkart at prices of-
- Smart 2 (3GB+32GB)-INR 5599/- instead of INR 7999/- Discount –INR 2400/-
- HOTS3X (3GB+32GB) –INR 6999/– instead of INR 10999/-Discount-INR 4000/-
The twin announcement comes as great news for both existing and prospective users of Infinix’s phones. While new users of SMART 2 will be able to avail the rate reductions on offer, existing users will benefit from the Software Upgrade to enjoy faster performance. Infinix launched Smart 2 in August last year with Android Oreo version and has announced an upgrade to Android Pie within a period of 7 months.
Commenting on the same, Anish Kapoor, Chief Executive Officer, Infinix India said, “The roll-out of upgrades has already begun in phases for Smart 2 and is expected to be complete for all consumers by the end of May. In an ecosystem where organic OS upgrades are unlikely due to the presence of multiple stakeholders, Infinix has made it a priority to launch periodic upgrades of our OS. Furthermore, we will provide users with adequate information to handhold them during the entire upgrade process and ensure a seamless transition from the previous Android version.”
The new Android roll-out has already been completed for Infinix’s Note 5 and Note 5 stylus phones. Combined with the stunning array of cutting-edge features included in its phones, budget-conscious smartphone enthusiasts will be well served to grab the phones on offer and make the best use of the discounted rates.
