Bengaluru: When it comes to affordable smartphones, Lenovo K8 plus and Moto C Plus were the most favourite budget devices in 2017, Flipkart said on Friday.
Lenovo K8 Plus was launched in India in September for Rs 10,999 while Lenovo-owned Motorola launched Moto C Plus in June for Rs 6,999.
In the mid-range segment, Xiaomi’s dual-sim Redmi Note 4 and Android One initiative Xiaomi MI A1 were the hot-selling handsets, said Flipkart, which analysed the data from the carts of over 150 billion shoppers across all its platforms.
For Xiaomi, Redmi Note 4 device that was launched in January at Rs 9,999 for the base model (2GB RAM and 32GB onboard storage) has proved to be a game-changer.
“Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL and iPhone X were the most sought-after flagship smartphones of 2017. Honor 8 Pro and Samsung S7 came trailing close,” the e-talier said.
Claiming to rip apart the premium mid-segment market — after a successful Honor, 8 runs — Huawei brought Honor 8 Pro with fourth generation 12MP dual-lens camera system at Rs 29,999 (6GB/128GB variant) in July last year.
iPhone X emerged as the most good-looking smartphone launched in 2017, followed by Samsung S8 and S8+, MI Mix 2 and Moto X4.
