After exclusively launching Apple iPhone 6 (32GB) with exchange deals in India, Amazon has kicked off another promotional offer on 2016 edition iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus models with lucrative discounts in the country.

Amazon India is offering flat Rs 10,001 cash discount for 32GB and 128GB models of iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus. Previously, the iPhone 7's base model used to cost Rs 60,000 and now, it can be bought for Rs 49,999. Whereas the top-end iPhone 7 Plus, whose starting price used to be Rs 72,000, is now reduced to Rs 61,999.

This is an opportune moment for those who have been waiting for iPhone 7 series' price to drop, which by the way is a very rare occurrence.

Usually, the price of the Apple iPhones gets lowered only when the company releases new models, meaning it happens only once a year. But, thanks to cut throat competition between e-commerce firms, they tend to burn their VC funding by slashing prices to get consumer attention. In this case, the Indian arm of Amazon, which received heavy investment amounting to thousands of crores from its American parent company recently, is using it to take on the local player Flipkart.

Rival Snapdeal too had offered similar deals on Apple iPhone 7 series, but it has not been successful like Flipkart and Amazon India.

Having said that, Amazon India's discount offer will definitely won't last long, as it depends on the availability of the stocks.
