We have heard whispers that Google might be postponing Nexus 6 release in India by next year, but looks like Nexus 6 has almost reached Indian shores. Online retailer Flipkart which exclusively retails all Motorola products has now teased the upcoming Nexus 6 on twitter which hints at imminent launch in India.
Nexus 6 is a significant growth from Nexus 5, both in terms of size and price. 32 GB variant has been priced at 44,000 INR and the 64 GB variant will cost you 49,000 INR. The price is in a way justified, because the new Nexus 6 holds the best android hardware available, coupled with the best Android software experience you can ask for.
The display is 5.96 inches in size with Quad HD 2K resolution, powered by 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805 quad core processor with 3 GB RAM and Adreno 420 GPU. Imaging hardware (13 MP rear unit with 4k recording, dual led flash/ 2 MP front with large pixel size) and body design is similar to Moto X. There is 3220 mAh battery inside with support for Turbo Charging.
The Nexus 6 shares several similarities with Moto X and in price sensitive Indian market, basic users will perhaps opt for Moto X instead. Delay in the launch of New Nexus will further hamper its appeal as several OEMs are already working hard to timely push Android 5.0 Lollipop on popular handsets. With more devices flaunting Android L, users will have one less reason to shell out extra cash for Nexus 6. The 32 GB variant is already listed on Flipkart with a Coming soon tag. We expect it to be available in next couple of weeks.
