Google Nexus 6 price in India is too steep for the masses

It looks like the Google Nexus 6 is getting ready to make its debut in India as the device has now been listed on the company’s Play store with a price of Rs 44000. As expected, the search giant is asking a premium for its new flagship, though we wonder whether the masses are willing to shell out that much for the 32GB model.

The Google phone’s 64GB version will also be made available in India and it’ll cost you Rs 49000, which comes to an additional Rs 5000. The company keeping mum about the availability details for the Nexus 6, but you can rest assure that the handset will go on sale this month itself.

The main competitors for the Motorola-made smartphone are the iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4. The device in question has the upper hand here mainly because it offers top-tier specs at a much lower price compared to the other two handsets.
