Highlights

  • iPhone 12 Pro Max 512GB variant on sale on Amazon with a discount. 
  • The discount is of Re 1 on the MRP of the iPhone 12 Pro Max 512GB.
  • It seems like one of those offers that Amazon's shopping AI comes up with from time to time. 

The AI that Amazon uses to change prices in real-time on the website is rightly famous for giving shoppers some funny moments while they price the website. This time it seems that the iPhone 12 Pro Max, particularly the 512GB variant, is the victim of the Amazon AI. The iPhone 12 Pro Max 512GB variant has been listed on the Amazon India website selling with a discount of -- wait for it -- a grand total of Re 1.

Yes, that is right. The iPhone 12 Pro Max 512GB, which has an MRP of Rs 1,59,900, is currently on sale at a price of Rs 1,59,899. In other words, this is an offer, unlike what Don Corleone would say, you can refuse. We mean if you are looking for an offer on the iPhone 12 Pro Max look for somewhere else, this Amazon offer should be totally ignored.

This is not the first time we have seen Amazon AI running Re 1 discounts. It often does it because doing it lets it stamp "discount" or "offer" on the product page, which attracts the attention of the users. On other hand, if the Amazon shopping AI finds products that are rare, as in not selling anywhere else, it often pumps up their prices to ridiculous levels, like some books that are shown to be selling at prices above Rs 1 lakh or even more than that.

Alright, the Amazon discount on the iPhone 12 Pro Max is a joke. But what if you do want to buy the phone and are looking to save some money? There are other offers.

Amazon India will let its users exchange their old phones for up to Rs 13,450 for the iPhone 12 Pro Max 512GB. So the exchange offer can help you bring the price down to some extent. Additionally, buyers can use their HDFC Bank Credit Card, Credit EMI, and Debit EMI Transactions to get an instant discount of Rs 5000. And if you make the payment using the HDFC Debit card, you could get a discount of Rs 1500.

At the same time, Vijay Sales is also running discounts on various iPhones as part of its Holi sale. The iPhone 11 is available for Rs 51,999, which marks a discount of Rs 3000 on the official price. The HDFC card offer is also available there, so additional Rs 5000 discount can be availed on the iPhone 11. In the case of the iPhone 12, an additional discount of Rs 6000 is available to HDFC bank card users, in addition to a Rs 2000 discount on the MRP of Rs 79,490.

The iPhone XR, the iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone SE 2 are getting similar discounts in the Vijay Sales Holi sale.

As far as the iPhone 12 Pro Max is concerned, Vijay sales is offering a Rs 5000 instant discount on the price. So the 128GB iPhone 12 Pro Max is available at a price of Rs 1,24,900 instead of 1,29,900. However, the 512GB variant of the iPhone 12 Pro Max is not available on the Vijay Sales website.

The iPhone 12 Pro Max features a 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display. It has a ceramic shield coating, which is said to be tougher than any smartphone glass. Powering the iPhone 12 Pro Max is the A14 Bionic chip, which is considered the fastest chip ever in a smartphone. In the camera department, the iPhone 12 Pro Max features three camera sensors on the rear. The camera island includes 12MP ultra-wide, wide, and telephoto cameras. On the front, there is a 12-megapixel 12MP TrueDepth camera for selfies. The smartphone comes with support for MagSafe accessories for easy attach and faster wireless charging.
