Google announced the Nexus 6 smartphone last year in October. The smartphone is the successor of Nexus 5 and is the first Nexus phone with huge 5.96-inch display. Nexus 6 is built in partnership with Motorola and is based on 2nd gen Moto X smartphone. Google launched the Nexus 6 in India two months after its official announcement with hefty price tag of Rs. 43,999 for base 32GB variant.

Now, after seven months, the Motorola-made Nexus 6 has gotten a huge price cut in the country. Online retailer Flipkart now sells the 32GB version of Nexus 6 for Rs. 34,999, which is 20% off its launch price. The price cut is not only limited to the 32GB version, the 64GB version now retails for Rs. 39,999, as opposed to the usual Rs. 48,999.

Such a huge price cut of Nexus device indicates either of the two; Google was unable to create hype of Nexus 6 in the country or Google has plans to launch the next generation Nexus smartphones (LG & Huawei) in the country soon after its launch. 

To remind you, Google Nexus 6 comes with a 5.96-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB RAM and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. The smartphone measures 159.26 x 82.98 x 10.06 mm and weights 184 grams.

Other specifications include an 13MP rear camera with dual-LED ring flash, 4K recording support and OIS, 2MP front facing camera, 32GB / 64GB internal storage without expandable support and 3,220 mAh battery. Connectivity series include 4G LTE / 3G HSPA+, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 2x2 MIMO, GPS and NFC support.
