The current generation Nexus smartphone, Nexus 6 that was announced by Google last month is listed in India by the e-commerce portal Flipkart. However, the retailer does not divulge any information regarding the pricing and availability of the smartphone. There is no information regarding the Nexus 6 release in the country even on the Google Play India page, though the Nexus 9 has been listed for Rs 28,900 with a ‘Coming Soon’ tag.
The Flipkart listing features the 32 GB variant of the Nexus 6 with a ‘Coming Soon’ status, but there are no details if the device will be going on sale on other portals as well. We need to wait for the handset to be released to know if it will be exclusive only to Flipkart and Google Play India or not.
