Diwali gifting season has arrived, and smartphones are a great way to let your friends, family and relatives know that you love them. If you’re looking for a smartphone that doesn’t cost a lot and still has a mix of fast processor, good cameras and fast charging battery, then Poco M5 is a good option. Poco has announced that the M5 will be available at a discounted price under a special Diwali offer.
Poco M5 is an entry-level phone that comes with 4G processor and is available in two colours. It was launched in September at a starting price of Rs 12,499, but with Diwali offers, it will sell for less than Rs 9,499 on Flipkart. Now this offer does not come without any condition. Poco has said that the Poco M5 will cost you Rs 9,499 when you use SBI credit card for upfront or EMI transactions.
Poco said it will be a limited period offer on the occasion of Dhanteras and Diwali, which should mean that the offer will be discontinued after the festivities are over. Although the exact date is not clear yet.
