However, there is no word whether Nexus 6 will also be available for purchase at the official Google Play store. As of the now, Device section of the store carries a 'coming soon' tag.
The report comes just days after some rumours indicated that Nexus 6 release for the Indian market may be pushed to early 2015.
Last week technology blog, Gizmodo India broke the news that Motorola had postponed the launch of Nexus 6 to first quarter 2015 in the subcontinent owing to production woes.
But now it looks like Indian fans have to wait just a few more days to get their hands on the much awaited Nexus 6.
Besides India, Google Nexus 6 pre-order service is also set to take-off on 18 November in select European regions as well.
