Flipkart's Big Shopping Days sale includes the OnePlus 3, to Carl Pei's surprise

During the Big Shopping Days sale, Flipkart will offer the OnePlus 3 for under Rs. 20,000. According to his tweet, Carl Pei knew nothing about its inclusion.

Flipkart’s upcoming ‘Big Shopping Days’ sale is scheduled to kick off on Sunday, December 18, and will last until Wednesday, December 21. The company is now offering us a sneak peek into the deals that will soon be available.

Flipkart will offer discounts on a bunch of products, including the OnePlus 3. The device, which launched in India for Rs. 27,999, will be available for less than Rs. 20,000. While the price is nice, its presence in the sale is odd, seeing as OnePlus is selling its smartphone in the country exclusively through Amazon.

We may not know how Flipkart has managed to pull this off, but apparently neither does OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei. Following the announcement of the sale and the OnePlus 3’s appearance in it, Carl Pei sent a tweet to Sachin Bansal, Flipkart’s co-founder, asking him about the sale and saying that OnePlus is exclusive with Amazon India.

Pei has not received a response to his question yet, so we’ll just have to wait for a bit to see how this story plays out in the end.

In addition to the OnePlus 3, Flipkart will also offer discounts on a bunch of other smartphones. For example, you’ll be able to get your hands on the Moto E3 Power for Rs. 7,499 (Rs. 500 off) or the LeEco Le 2 for Rs. 10,999 (Rs. 1,000 off). There will be more smartphones, smartwatches, headphones, and other electronics on offer, but Flipkart has not revealed the exact prices for every product that will be available during the Big Shopping Days sale.
