Google’s next flagship smartphone, Nexus 6, has been listed online on e-commerce website, with a ‘coming soon’ tag. The price of the device has not been mentioned.

Built by Motorola, the Nexus 6 smartphone was announced by Google last month. The phone looks like a larger version of the new-generation Moto X and sports a 6-inch QHD(2560x1440p) display. It features dual front-facing stereo speakers,and a brushed aluminium body.

The phone is powered by a 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB RAM, and comes in 32GB and 64GB storage variants. The version listed on Flipkart has 32GB storage. The phone has a 3,220mAh battery and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.

Nexus 6 sports a 13MP rear camera with a dual LED Ring flash and a 2MP front-facing camera. In terms of connectivity, it supports Wi-Fi (802.11ac), Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, GPS and 4G (some 4G bands).

It’s worth pointing out that Google’s Nexus 5 smartphone was first listed on the Play Store and initially sold via the tech giant’s online marketplace. Even Google’s forthcoming tablet Nexus 9 has been listed on the play Store with a ‘coming soon’ tag. However, the Nexus 6 has not made an appearance on the Play Store yet.

Motorola exclusively sells its devices on Flipkart so it’s possible that the company will sell the Nexus 6 only on Flipkart. In a recent press note, Motorola had said that Nexus 6 will be available with the company’s partners starting in November and that the phone will come to 28 countries, including India. Since Google also sells Nexus devices on its Play Store, it’s possible that the phone may be sold on its online marketplace.

Nexus 6 pre-orders started in the US on October 29 and the stock sold out within a few hours after the Play Store listing . The 32GB version sells at $649 (Rs 40,000 approximately) and the 64GB one is priced at $699 (Rs 43,000 approximately).
