Internet giant Google’s newly-launched Nexus smartphones will start selling in India between October 10-14, two days before the latest iPhones go on sale in the country.

According to sources, the new Nexus smartphones — Huawei Nexus 6P and LG Nexus 5X — priced in the US at $499 (Rs 32,450) and $379 (Rs 24,650) will be launched on October 13.

The move by Google could be seen as an effect of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s two-day visit to the West Coast in the US during which he met the newly-appointed Indian-born Google chief executive Sundar Pichai.

      may be some grey transaction, why India is allowing certain foreign electronic equipment companies to sell their finished products in India on one hand while putting customs on the other hand. there is an alternative all foreign companies should establish their production units in the same country where they want share the market, this way a lot of jobs would be created, other wise we will be buying American bs outsourced in China or Taiwan. Apart from having the capabilities to produce locally we will be losing a lot because of patent regime. best method is create industrial production cities for foreign and get outsourcing orders, creating jobs etc.
