Vodafone and Indian smartphone maker Micromax today entered into a partnership to offer cashback of up to Rs. 2200 to their customers. As part of the offer, Vodafone customers can get up to Rs. 2200 cashback on selected Micromax smartphones. 

This effectively brings down the price of Micromax smartphones to as low as Rs. 1549, taking on other offerings from companies like Reliance Jio, Airtel and others.

The Indian telecom sector has seen some major discounts in both tariffs as well as cashbacks/data bundles over the last one year. Led by Reliance Jio, these cashback offers are available on high-end phones like the iPhone X, iPhone 8/8 Plus and Pixel 2/2 XL to entry-level phones like the JioPhone and Bharat 1.

Vodafone Micromax cashback offer details

As a part of the Vodafone Micromax cashback offer, users can get Rs. 2200 cashback over a period of 36 months – Rs. 900 in the first 18 months and Rs. 1300 in the next 18 months. All Vodafone users are eligible for this offer – both existing and new.

The cashback offer is available on select Micromax smartphones – Bharat 2 Plus, Bharat 3, Bharat 4

and the Canvas 1. The Bharat 2 Plus is the most affordable smartphone in the lot, effectively costing Rs. 1549 after the cashback of Rs. 2200.

To be eligible for this Micromax offer, users will have to recharge with a minimum of Rs. 150 per month on your Vodafone number.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A expected to launch in India on November 30

Xiaomi Redmi 5A expected to launch in India on November 30

After launching the Redmi Y1 and Y1 Lite in India recently, Xiaomi is gearing up to launch another new smartphone in the country. Named the Redmi 5A, Xiaomi is teasing the phone as a “desh ka smartphone”, perhaps hinting that it will be a budget smartphone aimed at the masses.

With the launch of multiple ultra-affordable phones in India after the launch of the JioPhone, it would seem that Xiaomi is also gearing up to target this price segment. Earlier this year, Reliance Jio had launched the JioPhone with the tagline “India ka Smartphone”, and with Xiaomi also teasing its next smartphone launch with a similar tagline, we may see an entry-level smartphone from the company.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A specifications

The Redmi 5A was launched earlier last month in China, featuring a 5-inch display and a quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor. It comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, which can be expanded up to 256GB using a microSD card. The phone also comes with a 13MP rear camera along with a 5MP front camera, but misses out on more mainstream features like a fingerprint sensor.

The Redmi 5A is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery and supports dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-FI, Bluetooth and GPS. Xiaomi had priced the phone at CNY 599 in China, so the Indian pricing could be around Rs. 5,900.

Xiaomi expands its focus on the Indian market

Xiaomi earlier announced that it has sold 9.2 million smartphones in India in the previous quarter, and became the country’s biggest smartphone vendor along with Samsung in the month of October. Bolstering its Make in India efforts, Xiaomi also announced that it has opened a new manufacturing unit in Noida, Uttar Pradesh. Additionally, the company also launched the Mi Power Bank 2i, a product that has been made in India.
