Google Nexus 6P to Go on Sale in India From First Week of November

Google Nexus 6P to Go on Sale in India From First Week of November
When Google's latest Nexus 6P went up for pre-orders exclusively via Flipkart earlier this month, it left consumers disappointed as there were limited stocks available for pre-bookings. It seems Huawei has taken a note of it and has now announced its availability plans for the Nexus 6P in India.

The Chinese handset manufacturer claiming to ensure a "smooth demand-supply cycle" has announced the Google Nexus 6P will become available in batches in India starting the first week of November. Unfortunately, the Chinese company in its emailed statement didn't detail the number of units it will ship to India.

The LG-made Google Nexus 5X on the other hand, went on sale in India on October 21. To recall, the Nexus 6P has been priced at Rs. 39,999 for the 32GB storage variant, and Rs. 42,999 for the 64GB variant.
