Flipkart SmartBuy Launched, Offers Self-Branded Chargers and Micro-USB Cables at Low Prices
Flipkart on Friday morning announced the launch of Flipkart SmartBuy, with a mail to users promising everyday products at great prices. The SmartBuy store is currently offering only a small selection of chargers and data cables, although Flipkart’s mail also include pictures of some other products such as Bluetooth spekers and headphones. This offering is pretty similar to Amazon Basics, where Amazon offers it’s own branded cables, headphones, speakers, bags and sleeves.
There aren’t too many items on SmartBuy right now, but the micro-USB cables on offer are much cheaper than the Amazon Basics cables. We have used the Amazon Basics cables, and can vouch for how durable they seem; in the pictures, Flipkart’s cable also looks the same, so hopefully it hasn’t cut corners on quality in order to deliver a lower price.Read more ↓
Flipkart has been building up a number of private labels over the years, well before Flipkart SmartBuy, and two years ago, launched it’s own home appliances and personal healthcare brand, called Citron. It also has a brand called Flippd in the apparel space, and Digiflip is it’s consumer elecrtronics brand.
Digiflip and Flipkart Smartbuy seem to be a little similar as the former also offers a number of electronics accessories such as power banks, laptop speakers, and even laptop bags, and looking at the email that Flipkart sent this morning, some of those products are likley to make their way over to the SmartBuy brand, as Flipkart confirmed that the Digiflip brand is no longer active.
