As of now there is no pricing details of each of the models, but we are expecting this to be for the base variants respectively. Considering that the official pricing is out, we feel the Nexus 5X is a bit over priced for the specs especially the 16GB variant which does not even have SD card. There are lot better choices available in India including the OnePlus Two and other flagships.
But we need to wait for the confirmation from Google on the pricing of different variants. The Nexus 6P at Rs 39,999 looks much better deal considering the Motorola Nexus 6 was priced close to Rs 44,000 when it was released last year.
