Flipkart says it sold five lakh mobile handsets in 10 hours after mobile offers went live on day three of the Flipkart Big Billion Days sale.
“This sets a record for the highest number of mobile phones sold in India in a short period of ten hours in any platform, either online or offline,” Flipkart said in statement.
Flipkart’s Big Billion Days festive sale started on Tuesday and will end on Saturday. The sale of mobile phones opened at midnight Wednesday night (12:01am on Thursday).
While metros like Bengaluru, Delhi and Mumbai led in terms of the sales, Flipkart said it saw a huge surge of interest from tier-II cities with Nagpur, Indore, Coimbatore, Vishakhapatnam and Jaipur leading in sales.
The Bengaluru-based firm said the platform also saw huge sales of 4G-enabled devices.
“75 percent of the phones sold during the ten hours period were 4G phones,” it added.
