Samsung Galaxy Note 8 set for August 26 unveiling

Amazon has a Smartphone Sale that started on Monday. Cell phone really copied from Apple's iPhone 7, but only from the rear, the front is the Samsung smartphones, and nearly all at once. Amazon is also offering those buying the OnePlus 3T as part of the Amazon sale, Amazon Pay balance of Rs250 if you stream video content via the Prime Video app once you purchase the smartphone. In fact, it's easy to argue that this OnePlus 5 phone is simply an iPhone 7 Plus with a OnePlus logo on the back, at least according to Apple fans. The phone runs on iOS 9.3. The iPhone SE has a 4-inch display and resolution of 640x1136 pixels. There's 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card. The iPhone 7, the Cupertino-based tech giant's flagship right now, is available at an extraordinary discount of Rs 17,000.

Amazon's discount, however, makes it nearly dirt cheap - a descriptor not often used for Apple products. The company is also known for smartphones with great features, but at an affordable pricing to boot, and that's one of the reasons we like them.

OnePlus stuck to the same lovely design with its new phone, so keep that in mind as you decide if it's worth buying.

Also, the 256GB variant of the phone is offered at Rs 65,900. The publication also mentions that this change in venue from IFA to NY in August was due to estimated launch of handset's from Samsung's arch rival Apple. It should give you about 20% more uptime than the OnePlus 3T, which is good, since the 3T underwhelmed a bit compared to the original OnePlus 3 model. The company's previous-generation iPhone, iPhone 6S can be bought at Rs 33,999 after a discount of Rs 16,001.

OnePlus has done it again, making a disruptive splash among Apple and Samsung's smartphone dominance with yet another spec-packed handset that defies its budget price tag.

Not to mention, the OnePlus 5 is priced to kill - it's far more affordable than the premium flagships Samsung and Apple sell. The smartphone is available at a discount of Rs 2,000. It weighs 155g, has a glass back and is available in midnight black, maple gold, and coral blue colours.

Moving on to Android options, the Samsung Galaxy C7 Pro is now Rs 4000 cheaper at Rs 25990. A similar exchange offer is also listed on the Moto G5 Plus as well as the Xiaomi Mi Max Prime smartphones.
