Since the early 2014, Flipkart has been exclusively selling Motorola (Moto X, Moto G & Moto E) smartphones in India, but being a product of a joint-venture between Google and Motorola Nexus 6 may be sold through multiple channels like previous Nexus series smartphones.

As of now, nothing is set in stone; both Google and Motorola are yet to officially reveal Nexus 6's sales business model for India, but it is reported that the device in all probability will roll out in India this month, along with 27 other regions across the world.

Nexus 6 had a rollicking start in the USA. The pre-order service, which went live on 29 October at Google Play store, ended in just few hours. The pre-order pages for both Nexus 6 - 32GB and 64GB - models (Midnight Blue and Cloud White) currently read: "We are out of inventory. Please check back soon" with no mention of any specific detail on when exactly it would be back in the Play store.

For the uninitiated, Nexus 6 sports 5.96-inch QHD (2560x1400p) AMOLED display and ships with new Android 5.0 Lollipop OS, Qualcomm 805 series Snapdragon CPU, 3GB RAM, 32GB/64GB inbuilt memory, 13.0-megapixel main camera, a 2.0-megapixel snapper on the front and 3220 mAh battery.
