The Chinese smartphone brands have tasted unparalleled success in India and Vivo is a name that consumers are quite familiar with in this fiercely competitive market. Ahead of the country's 72nd Independence Day, Vivo is gearing up for a three-day sale exclusively on its online store from August 7 till August 9, 2018.

During the sale, dubbed as Vivo Freedom Carnival, the Chinese smartphone maker is going to offer a variety of discounts, deals and cashback offers on select smartphones and accessories. Considering the generosity of the discounts, products on offer will be available in flash sales until stocks last.

The biggest highlight of the upcoming sale is that the company is offering Vivo Nex and Vivo V9 for Rs 1,947 – commemorating the year India was freed from the British rule in the year 1947. If you really wish to avail this incredible offer, you will need to be vigilant of the times when the sale will begin and act immediately.

Vivo's Freedom Carnival sale begins at 12 a.m. on August 6, 2018.

Vivo Nex is priced at Rs 44,990 and the Vivo V9 costs Rs 20,990 in India. The steep discount on the price makes both these products, especially the flagship Vivo Nex, a steal. But if you don't see a reason to buy a smartphone or simply couldn't beat the rush of flash sales, watch out for other deals on Vivo accessories, such as earphones and USB cables for Rs 72, which is a reference to the 72nd Independence Day this year.

"Vivo wanted to make the 72nd Independence Day special for all its customers. Our Freedom Carnival brings exclusive offers on our latest products and provides the freedom for everybody to celebrate and express themselves through Vivo smartphones and accessories," Jerome Chen, CMO, Vivo India, said in a statement.

The offers on Vivo Nex, V9 and accessories are the main highlights, but the company will also be offering coupon deals. For instance, buyers will get Rs 2,000 and Rs 3,000 coupon on the purchase of Vivo V7 and Vivo V7+, respectively, which can be redeemed on select smartphones and accessories. Similarly, customers will get Rs 200 coupon on purchasing Vivo's premium earphones and Rs 50 coupon on buying regular earphones and USB cable.

But that's not the end of it. Customers will also be able to avail cashback up to Rs 4,000 on select phones, 12-month no-cost EMI on all phones and free Bluetooth earphones worth Rs 1,200 on the purchase of Vivo Nex, Vivo V9 and Vivo X21.

These are great reasons to mark your calendars for Sunday at midnight.
