Rajat Agrawal reporting for BGR India:
Sources tell BGR India that Flipkart was in talks with Intel, MediaTek and Qualcomm for almost two years. It was the successful launch of the Moto G exclusively on Flipkart sort of convinced the online retailer, sources say. While the plans are still in the works, BGR India learns that Flipkart has zeroed down at launching two smartphones based on solutions from one of the three chipset vendors mentioned above.
This is going to be very interesting. The people that I speak to daily, my friends & peers, know Flipkart as a major online retailer and are slowly getting comfortable ordering large or expensive products “online” without being skeptical. Surprisingly, most of them weren’t aware of Amazon India’s entry into the same space. I can’t say about the quality of these smartphones that Flipkart is supposedly launching, but it’s an interesting move nonetheless.
