Nexus 6P to be available in India next month

When Google launched the Huawei-made Nexus 6P – alongside the LG-made Nexus 5X – in India a couple of weeks ago, it was said that the device will begin shipping on October 21. However, that never happened, and the company has now confirmed that the handset will land in India in November.

Huawei has said that the smartphone, which is currently up for pre-order on Flipkart, has received an overwhelming response, and will be available in the country starting next month.

“Our supply chain is working on priority to fulfill the demand and the smartphones will be shipped out in batches,” said P. Sanjeev, Vice President Sales, Huawei & Honor India – Consumer Business Group. “The first batch of the smartphone will be available in India starting first week of November. We are working closely with Flipkart and our retail partners on the availability of the smartphones to the Nexus 6P fans.”

If you aren’t already aware, the handset – which has already started shipping in the US – costs INR 39,999 ($615) for the 32GB version or INR 42,999 ($660) for double the storage.
