Microsoft lines up festive season offers for Lumia smartphones

The festive season in India is never-ending. Come March, and we have the Holi festival during the first week. The smartphone world is a device with a vibrant color hood that is gearing up to celebrate the festival of colors.

Microsoft has announced that in line with the Holi celebration, they have started offering cashback offers to their Lumia 830 and 930 smartphones.

The guaranteed cashback will let users grab these smartphones at Rs 7000 less than the launch price in India.

The cashback has been announced for purchases made from physical stores, but it is not clear whether it applies to the Microsoft exclusive stores.

The offers don’t end with Microsoft either. Although not related to any festive offer, Samsung Galaxy S4 has also been given a jaw-dropping price cut.

The device is now available on Amazon for Rs 17,999, with an Android L update expected to soon roll out for the last flagship phone of the South Korean manufacturers.

The Lumia 830 will be available for a net price of Rs 21,800 after the cashback when its launch price is around Rs 28,000.

The 5-inch smartphone with a 720p display runs a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor and comes with 1GB RAM and 16 GB in-built storage. The front and rear cameras of 10 MP and VGA respectively also support HD video capture.

Lumia 930, Microsoft’s flagship Windows smartphone, will now be available at Rs 31,600 and whose launch price was at Rs 38,700.

With a 5-inch Full HD display, Lumia 930 features a 2.2GHz quad-core processor with 2 GB RAM and 32 GB in-built storage. It also features a 20MP PureView snapper at its rear, along with a 1.2 MP front cam.
