As part of the launch offer, Amazon is offering a flat discount of Rs 5000 upon exchange of an old working smartphone. You will also receive one-time screen replacement with HDFC cashback offer. The huge cost is attributed to the inclusion of a pop-up selfie camera. We can’t comment on the quality because we didn’t get a review unit.
