Leading e-commerce company Flipkart, in association with banking partner HDFC, is offering Rs 7,000 cash discount on Google's Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones in India.

Since the launch of the new Google phones on October 13, Flipkart has been offering an exchange deal of about Rs 26,000. The prices of Pixel phone series start at Rs 57,000 and with the exchange programme, the price of the base model fell to Rs 31,000.

Now, with the new offer, consumers with HDFC credit/debit card can grab it for just Rs 24,000, which is less than half its original price. This offer is valid until November 30, Flipkart mentions on the product's landing page.

This move will certainly draw people towards Google Pixel since the rival Apple iPhone 7 series does not boast such lucrative deals.

Google Pixel and Pixel XL look identical. They flaunt uni-body design language with annodised Aluminium-based cover on the back, but differ in screen sizes. While one is a 5.0-inch device having full HD (1920x108p) resolution, the other has a 5.5-inch display having QHD (2560x1440p) resolution.

The other specifications remain the same in both the devices.
