Limited Nexus 6P stock to go on sale in India first week of November
Indian Nexus fans have been able to purchase the new 5X for almost a week now, but there is still no sign of the larger Nexus 6P. HUAWEI’s Vice President of Sale in India, P. Sanjeev, has now announced that the smartphone won’t be available in the country until the first week of November.
Along with the announcement, HUAWEI also stated that Nexus 6P stock would be arriving in India in batches. This is apparently to ensure a “smooth demand-supply cycle”, although the company did not confirm how many handsets would be made available in the country at the start of sales or how often these batches could come in. Hopefully we are not looking at another Nexus supply drama here.
“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.” – P. Sanjeev, HUAWEI
Indian e-commerce giant FlipKart has previously suggested that its Nexus 6P stock would not be arriving until the end of October and that the handset wouldn’t be available to purchase until November 2nd, which now matches up with HUAWEI’s announcement. We do know that the Nexus 6P will cost Rs. 39,999 for the 32GB storage variant and Rs. 42,999 for the 64GB model.
