Motorola's exclusive e-commerce affiliate, Flipkart has teased the eagerly awaited Google Nexus 6 on Twitter, hinting that the device launch is just around the corner.
Flipkart's Twitter handle has posted a graphic image with cryptic phrases – 'There's more to come... excited?' and 'There's m6re it, than meets the eye'.
It goes without saying if it is in fact related to Google Nexus 6 India launch, but the numerical '6' in the word – 'm6re' – sends out an ambiguous message. Is Flipkart just saying Nexus 6 is launching soon or it's a countdown of the release date?
Many Android fans would like to incline for the latter; as there are rumours making the rounds on the Internet that Nexus 6 release for the Indian market may be pushed to early 2015.
A sense of gloom fell on Indian Nexus fans early this week, when Gizmodo India broke the news that Motorola postponed the launch of Nexus 6 to first quarter of 2015 in the subcontinent owing to production woes.

Recent events in the USA and Europe too pointed the same. Motorola is currently having trouble to satiate huge Nexus 6 demands in the US. T-Mobile, which was slated to release the phone on 12 November, postponed the launch to next week.
"To give +T-Mobile customers the best experience possible, we're moving our#Nexus6 launch out one week to 11/19," said the company on official Google Plus account.
Even the Nexus 6 pre-order service, which was supposed to go live on 3 November in select European regions, got pushed to 18 November.
Now, Flipkart's new teaser has brought back cheers to Indian fans.
