Google Pixel

Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones will be available from October 25. The Indian arm of the search engine giant has tweeted the information about the availability of the handsets on October 22. If you pre-ordered the phone from Flipkart, you will get the shipment within few days.

In the tweet, Google marked the fact that ‘the future is exciting. And by future we mean 3 days from now’. Moreover, Pixel will start hitting the shelves of retail stores on October 25. The tweet was followed by the hashtag #madebygoogle.

As of writing this, the Pixel smartphones are available for pre-order from Flipkart at Rs. 57000 ($850). The point to note is that the Really Blue color variant of the smartphone is not yet available in India.

Fortunately, the date of the availability of Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL coincides with Flipkart Big Diwali Sale. It remains to be seen as to whether Google provides any discounts for the new phone. We expect Flipkart to provide a discount of Rs. 5000 per one unit of Pixel and Pixel XL.

In the US, you will be able to buy the blue color variant of the phone in addition to all other variants.
