Amazon has announced on 19 June, 2017 that they will start a new three-day sale on smartphones alongside discounts on other products like headphones and laptops. The sale is response to the passing of the GST bill which will take effect from 1st July. This has prompted the sellers to organize sales and lower the prices of the smartphones so that they can clear their stock earlier.
