Motorola's newly unveiled Google Nexus 6, which was supposed to hit India Stores early next month, has been pushed to next year.
Technology blog, Gizmodo India has claimed that Motorola has reportedly postponed the launch of Nexus 6 to first quarter of 2015 in the subcontinent owing to productions woes.
There is no tangible evidence to validate the Gizmodo India's report, but it is in line with the Nexus 6 launch delays happening in North America and Europe.
Motorola is apparently having difficulty in bridging the supply-demand gap in USA. Nexus 6 pre-order service which went live on 29 October on Google Play store, ended in just a few hours.
After facing wrath from angry fans online for lack of units, Motorola promised to re-stock the Nexus 6 units on a weekly basis at Google Play and also made alternate arrangements on the official Motorola site for users to book the Nexus 6.
Despites putting efforts, Motorola is far from fixing the Nexus 6 supply issue, as American carrier T-Mobile has postponed the Nexus 6 launch to next week.
On the bright side, AT & T and Sprint are expected to ahead with the Nexus 6 launch later this week, reported Android Central.
As far as the Europe market is concerned, Google Nexus 6 pre-order service is slated to take off on 18 November.
Early this month Motorola's exclusive e-commerce affiliate, Flipkart listed the Nexus 6 with the 'coming soon' tag, leading to cheers in India. But going by recent reports, it looks like Nexus 6 fans will have to wait a couple more months to get their hands on the flagship Google smartphone.
Though the rumours are running wild on the Internet, Motorola is yet to respond to the media. Until the company comes out and clears the air over the rumours, the report will remain as pure speculations only.
For the uninitiated, Nexus 6 sports a 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 a 3220 mAh battery.
