Nexus 6

Now that the Nexus 6 is official, Motorola is sharing more details on when the handset will be available in countries around the globe. In a blog post yesterday, the manufacturer stated that the device would be heading to 28 countries by the end of the year, with India included in the first wave. Although an official launch date has not been confirmed, it is expected that the device will be launched in the country sometime in the month of December.

Pricing is not available yet, although a leak from yesterday suggested that the Nexus 6 in India would cost Rs. 44,500 ($720). The Nexus 6 is priced higher than earlier generations of the handset, but it does come with cutting-edge specs that include a 5.96-inch QHD display, 3 GB RAM, 2.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 CPU, storage configurations of 32 and 64 GB, 13 MP camera with OIS and a 3,200 mAh battery. It is unknown at this stage whether the Indian version includes support for LTE networks in the country.

In terms of design, the Nexus 6 shares a lot of similarities with the Moto X, which includes a metal frame around the sides as well as a soft touch plastic back. The device will be offered in Midnight Blue and Cloud White color variants.
