ModelPrice
32GB Google PixelRs 57000
128GB Google PixelRs 66000
128GB Google Pixel XLRs 76000

That’s quite a limited choice considering ideally users get eight variants to choose from considering the storage, model and colour options. Flipkart is offering ‘no cost EMIs’ which means you pay in EMI without the need to pay additional amount. First 1000 customers will get EGV (electronics gift voucher) worth Rs 5,700.


The company has opened the exchange offer that will let you get a discount of up to Rs 27,000. This means the starting price of the device would be around Rs 30,000. On trying to exchange an iPhone 6 Plus, you get a discount of roughly Rs 21,000. Flipkart promises free delivery of the ordered unit till 25 October.  First 1000 customers will also get EGV worth Rs 5,700. Free delivery till 25 October.
