Reports suggest that the e-commerce company is going to partner up with either Huawei or Motorola. These companies also have smartphone launches lined up including the Moto G6 series and Huawei’s P20 family.
Instead of a new smartphone, the e-commerce giant might come up with some sort of Value Added Services. These value-added services can be availed by anyone who is interested. The company might also launch a whole new Smartphone brand that will be exclusively on Flipkart.
Currently, the company is running a guessing contest on its app. You can head over to their official app and tap on the “#BigOnFlipkart” banner to participate. The contest gives you three options and you have to choose any two out of the three. You will also need to fill in your basic details like Name, E-Mail address and phone number.
