Before the deals went live, we spent hours pouring through the list of deals, separating the chaff from the wheat. If you are in the market for a high-end, premium flagship smartphone, we got you covered. The Freedom Sale will list some attractive offers and discounts on old phones and new, but not all are worth your attention. Here are the top five premium smartphones deals to look out for at the Amazon Freedom Sale 2019.
1. ONEPLUS 7 PRO (12GB RAM, 256GB STORAGE)
List Price: Rs 57,999
Deal Price: Rs 57,999 with additional exchange offers
The OnePlus 7 Pro’s retail price will remain unchanged during the sale, but Amazon is offering an extra Rs 3,000 off on exchanging your old phone, effectively letting you buy it for Rs 54,999. The exchange offer is present across all SKUs and even on the cheaper OnePlus 7. The OnePlus 7 Pro is the company’s first attempt at making a premium smartphone. After defining the affordable flagship segment, the OnePlus 7 Pro takes a dig at the premium flagships and offers a 90Hz QHD+ AMOLED display that’s curved and void of any bezels thanks to a pop-up selfie camera. On the frosted glass back, the OnePlus 7 Pro houses a triple camera stack which includes a 48MP primary camera along with a wide-angle and telephoto lens camera.
2. OPPO RENO 10X ZOOM (8GB RAM, 256GB STORAGE)
List Price: Rs 49,990

Once again, there’s no direct discount on the price of the Oppo Reno 10X Zoom, but Amazon is offering an additional Rs 5,000 off if you exchange your old phone. That effectively makes the price of the phone come down to Rs 44,990. At that price, you get an exquisitely carved smartphone with a bezel-less display and a frosted glass back design. The screen goes all the way to the edges thanks to a pop-up module in the shape of a shark-fin. On the back, there’s a triple-camera stack led by a 48MP camera, a wide-angle lens and a periscope telephoto lens that offers 10X hybrid zoom. It’s also a flagship performer with the latest Snapdragon 855 flagship SoC under the hood along with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.
3. IPHONE XR (64GB)
List Price: Rs 76,900
Deal Price: Rs 50,900
The iPhone XR is an excellent gateway to iOS and Apple’s ecosystem and as such, it’s the most affordable iPhone Apple has made without compromising on the performance. It has the same Apple A12 Bionic SoC that’s there on the iPhone XS along a single, but pretty reliable, camera on the back. On the front, you have a wide notch housing the TrueDepth camera setup that offers FaceID to authenticate purchases and everything else.
3. LG G7+ THINQ (6GB RAM, 128GB)
List Price: Rs 39,990

The LG G7+ ThinQ might be old now, but with a 25 percent discount, it’s a great deal to consider. The phone was launched at Rs 39,990 and Amazon is offering a hefty Rs 10,000 discount on the phone. The LG G7+ ThinQ will also last you longer. It’s water and dust resistant and is also MIL-SPEC graded ensuring its durability. There’s an older Snapdragon 845 SoC inside and along with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage and sports an HDR-certified QHD+ LCD display (albeit with a notch) and a dual-camera stack on the back.

The hardware under the hood is the same as the other Galaxy S10 phones making it as good as a performer as the premium offering from Samsung. Don’t let the small size fool you though.

5. HUAWEI P30 PRO
