Yesterday was Google’s ‘Nexus’ day. The company has announced two new Nexus handsets (LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P), and a new Nexus-like tablet, the Pixel C. The Mountain View giant has also unveiled the new Chromecast, and the Chromecast Audio devices. We’ve already covered this launch at length, so if you’re interested in checking out additional content, there’s plenty of it on the site. That being said, we’re here to talk about the pricing of new Nexus devices in India, world’s second largest smartphone market.
So, how much will these two handsets cost in India? Well, the Nexus 5X pricing will start at Rs. 31,900 ($485), for the 16GB of internal storage variant. The Nexus 6P, on the other hand, will cost Rs. 39.999 ($609), and we’re talking about the cheapest 32GB model here. That’s not all though, the company has decided to discount the Nexus 6 in the country, and the device now costs Rs. 39,999 ($609) for the 32GB model, but keep in mind that you might be able to purchase it for even less cash if you look at third-party stores based in India.
