As exclusively reported
by NDTV Gadgets on Monday, the Google Nexus 6
is now available for pre-orders in India.
At the time of writing, the Google Nexus 6 is listed for pre-orders in India via Flipkart, though the 'Devices' section
of Google Play India still says 'Coming soon'. Flipkart notes an estimated release date of the second week of December.
Google had officially confirmed the pricing of the Nexus 6 in India by listing it on the Google Play store in India earlier
this month. The Google Nexus 6 32GB variant has been priced at Rs. 44,000 in India, while the 64GB variant has been priced at Rs. 49,000. The prices are precisely in-line with what NDTV Gadgets had exclusively reported
Notably, Flipkart's pricing for the 32GB
variants are the same as the official Google Play listing of the Nexus 6, at Rs. 44,000 and Rs. 49,000 respectively. The website had listed
the 32GB variant earlier this month without any pricing and has been teasing it since
Flipkart is also offering special offers to pre-order customers, such as a free three-month subscription to Flipkart First; a smartphone exchange offer that can give a discount of up to Rs. 10,000, Rs. 1,500 cashback on purchasing on six-month to 12-month EMI schemes via HDFC or ICICI banks, and pre-selected Flipkart ebooks worth Rs. 2,100 for free.
The Google Nexus 6, which is being manufactured by Motorola, comes with a 5.96-inch QHD (1440x2560 pixels) display at a pixel density of 493ppi. The smartphone is powered by a 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor alongside 3GB of RAM. The smartphone comes with 13-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear and front cameras respectively.
The Nexus 6 runs the most recent version of Android i.e. Android 5.0 Lollipop, which comes with a fresh look thanks to Material Design and a host of new features. The Nexus 6 sports a massive 3220mAh battery, which adds to its bulk, since the smartphone weighs 184 grams and measures 82.98 x 159.26 x 10.06mm.
The Google Nexus 6 was unveiled last month, with Motorola saying in a statement at the time that "Nexus 6 will come to 28 countries (including India) across Europe, Asia-Pacific and North America starting later this year and as we head into Q1."
