The prices are bang in the middle of what most experts expected, but higher than what fans had been hoping for.
Most fans were expecting a price of around Rs 25,000 for the 32 GB version. However, the final price for the 16 GB model itself has turned out to be Rs 30,000.
However, on the positive side, the price of the 32 GB version is only Rs 2,000 more or Rs 31,999. Usually, smartphone brands charge around Rs 3,000 more.
Going by our recent poll, fans may be slightly disappointed to see the price of 32 GB version, though the entry-level model is still there for those on a budget.
One of its competitors, the Huawei Nexus 6P has been officially priced at Rs 39,999 for the 32 GB model in India. The price of the Nexus model may, however, decline when it is actually put up for sale.
Last year’s Motorola-made Nexus 6 2014 — with 32 GB of storage, a Snapdragon 805 32-bit processor, 3 GB of RAM and most importantly, a 6-inch, Quad-HD AMOLED display — is selling in India for Rs 29,999. [socialpoll id=”2299737″]
