Surely you must have heard of Flipkart, the huge e-commerce platform in India – think of it as India’s Amazon or China’s Alibaba. But the brand Billion? 

Billion is Flipkart’s first private label brand made exclusively in India for Indians. This new private label from Flipkart offers a range of products including mixers, grinders, cookware and backpacks. Soon, the Billion product catalogue will encompass smartphones, t-shirts, electric irons, and more.

Besides a high emphasis on quality and durability, the Billion product catalogue is sensitively designed for Indian conditions — extreme climatic variations, rough use, and wear and tear.

Indian shoppers are very particular about price and quality. They are unwilling to compromise on their needs and are yet discerning enough not to be lured into merely buying labels and brands. They do their research, compare specifications, have high expectations, and hold brands accountable for the promises they make. Billion is targeted at such shoppers.

This is where Billion Capture+ is a true testament to the everyday Indian — it is smart, fast, and absolutely reliable. The smartphone is designed and engineered in India, to address the many unique needs that and combining them in one awesome package; at an unbelievable price.
