Coolpad launched Dazen 1 in India exclusively on Snapdeal for Rs 6,999. The smartphone went on flash sale today for the second time but there was a twist in the tale.
Coolpad Dazen 1 is now priced at Rs 5,999. More than 1,00,000 customers were in for a surprise today when they logged on to Snapdeal to purchase the smartphone. The second sale saw 10,000 units up for grabs which went out of stock in 1 minute, according to Coolpad.
The Rs 1,000 price cut is to make the smartphone stand out in a crowded market which boast the likes of Redmi 2 and Yuphoria. We will not be surprised if any other company decides to follow the process and stir up the competition. It’s a win win for the consumers. In case you missed it, do check our Coolpad Dazen 1 review.
