    • I wish, but that one is controlled more by Google than Huawei, so it seems difficult. As Google doesn’t have any online dealers or physical stores here.

      • so you mean huawei is officially available here? because if that’s true, huawei also selling nexus 6P from their online store in US and etc.

            • Seriously? You have seen OPPO ads, but not Huawei? Are you sure? Because it is the exact opposite. Ever heard “dil mera Dil, khush ho gya”… Rings any bells?

              • haha, yes seriously, and is not ads I’ve seen it’s the campaigns and sign boards.
                so do huawei have an online store here?

                • Huawei has a lot of display stores also, if you are living in some big city. Almost every big city. Why would you want it from an online store if you can buy it in a physical store?

                  • Online or physical doesn’t matter, said that cause new nexus was available online only is since parts of the world.

      • they can sell it here if google allows them. motorola nexus is also being sold in china as the Moto X Pro . It is all about distributer.

  • Very nice and balanced looking device (spec wise) .. a 30k price tag can make it a Bestseller, even in Pakistan ..

  • if it really does come with 3/32 GB and dual sim, then definitely its a good buy in 35,000. Otherwise, for 35,000 2/16 GB doesn’t make it the most economical mid-range at all.
