itel honors its "Piso Sale" for A50!

You have probably encountered this fiasco over the week on social media. For those who don't know yet, itel held a live stream Piso Sale in TikTok last Saturday (July 6) together with Unbox Diaries.

Initially, itel intended to sell only 1 unit but then changed it to 10 units. However, the brand committed a shortcoming and has sold 6,500 units of the itel A50 worth PHP 3,199 for just PHP 1 peso.

This, in turn, has resulted in a major loss for the phone maker (around PHP 15M+). Meanwhile, itel team and Unbox Diaries initially asked customers to cancel their orders due to the tragedy.
