Google's official online partner in India, Flipkart, has commenced Pixel series pre-order service. As a part of the promotional scheme, the e-commerce site is also offering exchange deals with up to Rs 32,000 discount and no-cost EMI (Easy Monthly Instalments) starting from Rs 3,167/month price-tab.

In addition to that, Flipkart is giving away EGV (Electronics Gift Voucher) worth Rs 5,700 for the first 1,000 buyers. Flipkart has confirmed that the pre-booked Google Pixel series will be delivered on October 25.

Google Pixel and Pixel XL prices start at Rs 57,000 and Rs 67,000, respectively.

As of now, Flipkart is selling only three models - black colour based Google Pixel (5.0-inch) with 32GB and 128GB, and 5.5-inch-based Google Pixel XL with 128GB storage.

Prospective buyers can also order Google Pixel series on Reliance Digital, Croma, E-zone outlets, Spice HotSpot, Sangeetha, Poorvika Mobile World, Vijay Sales and Bajaj Electronics, as well.

Google Pixel and Pixel XL look identical. They flaunt uni-body design language with anodised Aluminum-based cover on the back, but differ in screen sizes—one, with 5.0-inch having full HD (1920x108p) resolution and another with 5.5-inch display having QHD (2560x1440p) resolution.
