Motorola's recently unveiled Google Nexus 6 will reportedly set foot in India next month.
The Indian Express, while attending Google's annual Asia-Pacific press event, Taipei, learnt that India will indeed be a part of Google Nexus 6 first launch phase (India + 27 other regions) this month. The device will be rolled out to the market via Google Play Store and Flipkart by the first week of December.
It is said that the Nexus 6 -- 32GB and 64GB -- models are expected to be priced between ₹40,000 and ₹45,000 in India
Motorola is expected to host a local launch event for Google Nexus 6 on 18 November in India, added The Indian Express. The event most likely will be used as a stage to kick-off the pre-order service, before rolling out the smartphone next month.
Even in Europe, the pre-order service, which was supposed to go live on 3 November has been pushed to 18 November, reported TechTastic, a Netherland based website.
UK's popular multi-brand smartphone vendor, Clove Technology has also confirmed the same.
"News in from Motorola (the manufacturer of the Nexus 6) has confirmed that no pre-orders will be taken until approximately the 18th of November now," said the company.
Nexus 6 got an overwhelming response in the USA, where the pre-order service, which went live on 29 October at Google Play store ended in just a few hours. Both the Nexus 6 -- 32GB and 64GB -- models (Midnight Blue and Cloud White) pre-order pages currently display the message: "We are out of inventory. Please check back soon"-- with no mention of any specific time-line details of when Nexus 6 will be returning to Play store.
