India based e-commerce giant Flipkart has reportedly confirmed that Google's new Huawei Nexus 6P will be sold exclusively on the company site on Tuesday.
This comes as a surprise to many, as Google is hosting an event in New Delhi to launch Huawei Nexus 6P and LG Nexus 5X in India. It was learnt that both the devices would be been made available on Google Store and later in brick-and-mortar stores. The company has even posted prices of the devices on Google Store.
However, it has now come to light that Huawei 6P can only be pre-booked via Flipkart (HERE) on 13 October, as a part of 'The Big Billion Days' sale.
"Gear up for the Nexus 6P available exclusively on Flipkart. Pre-order starting October 13th at #TheBigBillionDays", reads Flipkart's post on its official Facebook page.
As of now, there is no word whether LG Nexus 5X will be made available only on Flipkart or not. Stay tuned for more updates.
