The Google Nexus 6, which is the first Nexus phone to have been made in partnership with Motorola, will be available to purchase exclusively on Flipkart.com starting December 10. It comes in two variants – the 32GB model at Rs 43,999 and the 64GB variant, priced at Rs 48,999.

The Nexus 6, which looks a blown-up version of the recently launched Moto X (2nd Generation), comes with a 5.96-inch Quad HD display – bigger than both Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4.

The Google-Motorola Nexus 6 smartphone is one of the first devices to come with Android 5.0 Lollipop, the next version of Google’s mobile OS. The largest-ever Nexus smartphone is equipped with a 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and features dual front-facing speakers.
The new Nexus 6 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilisation and a 2-megapixel front camera. According to the company, Nexus 6 users can get up to 6 hours of use from only 15 minutes of charging. The 3220 mAh battery in the Nexus 6 is claimed to last for 24 hours on a full charge.
The phone will be available in Midnight Blue or Cloud White colours.
The GOSF will see 450 partners offering their best deals for 72 hours this year, Google said in a statement.
Focussing on the first time buyers, gosf.in will feature a special section of Rs 299 with heavily discounted products with free shipping and cash on delivery option. The section will feature products and offers from brands like Philips, Uber, JBL, Benetton, Alia Bhatt collection and EverPure water purifier.
“Great Online shopping festival is India’s version of cyber Monday and is an exciting platform to move the industry forward,” said Anandan.
The consumer confidence to shop online has grown considerably in the last 12 months, boosting the growth of both large multinational and homegrown companies, he added.
Google India has partnered Aditya Birla Money My Universe as a preferred partner for this year’s event. The initiative was launched by Google in 2012, and has seen tremendous response with most players seeing over 350 per cent growth in daily sales.
