Realme Claims to Have Sold Over 10 Lakh Phones Units During Flipkart Big Billion Days Sale


Realme on Monday revealed that it has sold over 10 lakh smartphone units during Flipkart Big Billion Days sale that was held last week. The company, which started its journey as a subsidiary of Oppo but recently became a separate entity, also announced that the Realme C1 reached the milestone of selling 1,10,000 devices in one second during the Flipkart sale. The Realme 2, on the other hand, is touted to have achieved 10 lakh units sold in 40 days since its launch in late August. With the new records, Realme claims to have emerged as the number two smartphone — behind Xiaomi — brand on Flipkart during the sale that concluded on Sunday.

Alongside the new numbers, Realme announced that its devices will now be available for purchase in the country in the third week of October during the next round of Flipkart’s sales. This also reveals that the online marketplace is in plans to host its next sale in the coming days.

In a press statement, Realme India Chief Executive Officer Madhav Sheth said that the company was overwhelmed with the response from customers during its first ever participation in Flipkart’s Big Billion Days sale. “Realme has secured No. 2 position on Flipkart but still we think we underestimated the love and expectations our fans have shown. I’m also happy to announce that Realme 2 has even crossed 1 million sales in just 40 days and even now ranked the highest rating in 10K segment. I’m proud to say there is truly a Realme for every Indian,” Sheth said.

“Realme has been a significant contributor to Big Billion Days sales and has also been one of the fastest selling brands. The Big Billion Days, 2018, has seen the biggest smartphone sellout in the history of smartphone retail industry and we’re poised to continue this success throughout the festive season,” said Ayyappan Rajagopal, Senior Director, Smartphones, Flipkart, in the statement.

The Realme 2 Pro and Realme C1 are the two latest smartphones that were made available during the Flipkart sale.

Chandrashekhar Bawankule, Maharashtra Minister Says Online Liquor Sale To Be Allowed, Backtracks


Mumbai: 

A Maharashtra minister said Sunday that the BJP-led government had decided to allow online sale and home delivery of liquor in the state, but later stated that only a proposal in this regard had been received.

“We want to curb the instances of drunken driving. Allowing home delivery of liquor will help in this,” Excise Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule told PTI Sunday morning, without elaborating as to when the decision would come into effect.

However, apparently fearing backlash over the announcement from opposition parties and anti-liquor activists, the minister later said that only a proposal had been received.

“We have a received an application requesting framing of a policy for purchase of liquor online from home. However, the government has not thought about it, nor there has been any policy (framed),” Mr Bawankule told reporters in Nagpur.

He also said that his department recently took action against 35 liquor shops in the state for providing foreign liquor at customers’ doorstep by taking orders through certain WhatsApp groups.

Earlier, a senior official in the excise department had told PTI that increasing the revenue was also a prime objective behind the decision to allow online sale of liquor.

The government is losing sizable excise tax due to closure of around 3,000 liquor outlets located near the highways owing to the Supreme Court’s order, he said.

Also, the reduction in prices of petrol and diesel earlier this month has caused some strain on the state’s treasury, the official had added.

Flipkart Big Billion Days Sale: Over 30 Lakh Mobiles Sold on Day 1, With 10 Lakh in an Hour


Flipkart Big Billion Days Sale kicked off on Wednesday, with deals in the mobiles category starting from midnight on Thursday, though Flipkart Plus members got early access to these deals, starting from 9pm on Wednesday itself. The e-commerce company has now shared statistics of October 11, and called it the “single biggest sales day in the history of Indian retail.”

In a statement to Gadgets 360, Flipkart claimed that that Thursday was the “record best start to the Big Billion Days sales,” and that in 26 hours, it had achieved the same business it had in 5 days during last year’s Big Billion Days sale. Flipkart said that it sold 10 lakh handsets in the first hour, and over 30 lakh on the day. This was claimed by the company to be a record across the whole mobile retail market in India.

Flipkart added it had features over 30 exclusive models during the sale, something that had resulted in the best ever sales for top brands including Samsung, Honor, Xiaomi, Asus, Nokia, Infinix, and Realme, among others. It said there have been a record 1 million users on its mobile app at any given point during Flipkart Big Billion Days sale, with a “record 99.9 percent uptime.”

Ayyappan Rajagopal, Sr. Director, Flipkart, said in an emailed statement, “Today, we have broken all records and have set a new benchmark for mobile sales in Indian retail industry. We have cemented our position as the market leader by offering customers a stellar exclusive selection, affordability constructs like No Cost EMI and Buyback Guarantees, and service assurances through Complete Mobile Protection, which ensure the best experience for the customer. With this milestone, we are on track to capture 80 percent of the online market and 50 percent of the overall market of the country and continue being the only destination for smartphones.”

In the electronics category, Flipkart said that Google Home overtook Amazon’s Alexa to become India’s largest smart speaker during the sale, and that 3 headphones have been sold every 2 seconds of the sale thus far. The online marketplace also said it was selling 1 laptop every minute, which is 4 times as fast as what India sells in a regular day.

Flipkart also said that its private labels reached as many customers in the first two days of the sale as they had in the first two months. Perfect Homes was said to have become India’s largest furniture brand on Flipkart during Big Billion Days in terms of sales. Its MarQ brand was said to power 1 in every 5 ACs and washing machines sold on Flipkart during this edition of the Flipkart Big Billion Days sale.

In the refurbished category, Flipkart said its recently opened 2GUD platform has become “India’s largest refurbished platform”, with 35X growth in less than 24 hours of sale opening.

Finally, Flipkart Plus statistics were also revealed – the company said Early Access appeared to be attractive to consumers, as over 30 percent of all purchases came from Plus customers.
