Google has just announced the launch of the Huawei-made Nexus 6P and the LG-made Nexus 5X in India. Both these smartphones happen to be the search giant’s flagship devices to showcase the attributes of its latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
The Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X will be made available for pre-order from today onwards, while their sales will begin on October 21. The former will be sold online by Flipkart, whereas the latter will be provided by Amazon. Besides, both smartphones will also be purchasable offline via retailers like The Mobile Store, Croma and more.
As for their prices, they are the same as we had expected. The Nexus 6P will be sold by Google at Rs 39999 (32GB) or Rs 42999 (64GB); the 128GB model hasn’t entered India for now. The Nexus 5X on the other hand, will be made available at Rs 31990 (16GB) or Rs 35900 (32GB).
