Huawei to Launch Nexus 6P in Pakistan

Huawei is officially bringing its flagship Nexus 6P to Pakistan tomorrow, TechProlonged has reported while citing unnamed sources. While Huawei hasn’t exactly announced the name of the device that is about to be revealed but the detailed specifications — that company sent to media as teaser — are hinting that the new device will be the Nexus 6P.

Nexus phones, Google’s take on a proper Android flagships, have been around for years but Pakistan has always been left out because the manufacturers of the devices had no official footprint in the country. This is going to change with Nexus 6P.

Nexus devices rely on a clean and smooth stock Android experience. All Nexus phones are also the first ones to receive the latest Android builds.

Huawei Nexus 6P is the higher-end version of the two Nexus devices revealed this year. The phablet comes with a unique and premium design, making the device stand out from the rest of the smartphone world. Nexus 6P is also the first Nexus device to come with a metal unibody design.

The 7.3mm thin body of Nexus 6P, coupled with the new color options and a unique design make it the best looking Nexus flagship to date.

Google and Huawei’s new flagship comes with a 5.7-inch AMOLED display with QHD (2K) resolution for its Nexus 6P.

Nexus 6P carries over the front-facing dual speaker setup from the Nexus 6 as well. Huawei worked hard to come up with a design that resembles its recent flagships but still maintains a unique Nexus identity.

Nexus 6P comes with a Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB of RAM and a 12.3 MP sensor for the rear camera. Don’t go for the megapixels here as Huawei used a sensor with bigger 1.55µm pixels and a wide F/2.0 aperture which should allow superior picture quality with less noise and more light intake.

The camera on Nexus 6P will shine especially in low-light shots because that’s where the bigger pixels display the real advantage. There’s a 8MP front facing camera on Nexus 6P too.

The Nexus flagship has a 3,450mAh battery which should go a long way with Android 6.0 Marshmallow featuring the battery saving Doze mode. The device uses a USB Type-C connector for charging and data transfers future proofing the phone for years to come.

There’s a Huawei special fingerprint sensor located at the back of the phone as well.

The phone will be priced at around Rs 71,999 for the 64GB variant. The prices for the 32GB and 128GB variants will be revealed later on. Not to mentioned, these are sourced prices and may differ from the launch prices.

      • It’s not Huawei’s fault. You can thank the government for the outrageous prices of electronics due to taxes and heavy import duties.

        • No, it is Huawei’s fault. don’t tell me other countries don’t have taxes. Still, it is THE HIGHEST price for this model, which we will be paying here in Pakistan. So, Huawei should have definitely priced it appropriately if not lower than or equal to the rest of the world.

          • So you’re telling me that they’re choosing to sell a Nexus device for more in Pakistan of all places, a third-world country, on purpose. Thus reducing their sales ON PURPOSE? So by your logic, the absurd official prices of iPhones here are also the respective company’s fault?

            Yes, other countries have taxes according to the buying power of their citizens. UK, for example, is one of the places with very high tax rates but its citizens also have a very high purchasing power. You can search for Nexus 6P (64 GB) there. You’ll find that it’s more expensive than it is even in the US, 500 GBP (official price) vs 550 US$. I’ll even do the conversion for you, 500GBP = 759 US$. In fact, every single gadget is more expensive in the UK when compared to its US price. So, you tell me Einstein, are the British paying more for every single gadget (even non-Huawei) because of Huawei too?

            The price of a gadget does depend heavily on a country’s policies, and our import policies are as unfriendly as they get; considering the purchasing power of this country’s citizens. So please, do take your head out of the sand before making uneducated comments.

            • Ok Newton, then tell me, how did OPPO manage to sell their R7 Plus for the lowest price possible around the globe?

              • So we’re just going to skip over the ridiculous introductory prices of OPPO Find 7 and 7a (latter of which had an introductory price of 50k) here?

                About R7 Plus, go ask either OPPO or FBR. There are about a thousand ways that can be accomplished (reducing the official price of the handset in Pakistan, for one; thus lowering taxes) and I don’t have the time or patience to explain them to you. As I’m sure you’re idiotic enough, with enough free time on your hands, to contradict any proof I throw at you. So… I’m gonna agree with you and praise the government for their low taxes and excellent policies from now on. Because there’s a reason all those companies like Amazon, eBay and PayPal are lining up to invest here. Oh wait, they aren’t.

            • Did Scarlet just nailed Smokin Aces??? ;) That was good… This country is over taxed and general people aren’t taken into consideration when policies are implemented…

        • jan 2015 the USD-PKR conversion was 100.5 today it’s 103.9. Which is lower than the all time high of 108.5 back in Nov 2008.

          What’s wrong with this country isn’t it’s currency but it’s citizens who bitch and whine all day long.

            • Yes i’m making excuses for pak currency getting better from 108 to 103 against the dollar.

              Intelligence is strong in this blind folded one !Master Yoda

              • sure whatever …
                DESPITE the currency “improvments” , as you see it , the overall prices somehow FAIL to devalue themselves … we aint getting cheap stuff DESPITE the “improvments”
                now tell me if thats progress or failure

                let me fill u in on another similar point. the morbid Textile Industry of our country , also faced the same punishment. when the Oil was around $100 per barrel … they were getting something around 9 rs / unit as electricity rates. when the price dropped to $50 per barrel, the industries were getting around 20 rs / unit ! as in , DESPITE the fall in international oil prices , they were getting MORE EXPENSIVE rates than before when oil was more expensive !

                tell me who’s the blind folded one now

                • Your first argument was about currency devaluing every day which is just false.
                  Your second argument is about prices not dropping once the oil prices dropped. Which is correct.

                  Teacher to kid, Your are a bad student you don’t even know 1,2,3. Student hahah. You are a bad teacher because i do know A,B,C.
                  Teacher completely shocked at the student.

                  • while i appreciate your analytical prowess , i don’t need your evaluation to prove my point.

                    think of currency devaluation in the other sense , even if we do hold up against the dollar , which is more or less a fluctuating affair , we don’t gain any ground OR even if we do , the END USER aka consumer aka common man aka people like u n me DO NOT get the benefit of it. And honestly speaking , the best era economy wise was musharraf’s (in modern times , otherwise it was bhutto’s when 1$ = ~10 pkr) when dollar was no more than worth PKR 63. pretty sure gizmos imported from abroad would have cost much better and reasonably at the time.

    • This is a NEXUS device. It has pure android installed on it. No bloatware afaik.
      Somebody buy me this phone.

        • Pure Android is a buttery smooth experience and the nexus devices are first in line to get the latest updates. They also have the biggest community of modders. It’s not for people who choose phones based on the loudness of speakers and the quality of camera (although the 6P has an excellent camera)

          To each his own I guess.

          • I agree with him. I am having a Moto G right now. Due to it being on stock android, even its a budget phone.. It actually performs really good even after 4 months of usage.

          • If you do install a stock android rom, first verify that your G2 is indeed a proper model and not a refurbished one. Refurbished ones have different screens which go haywire when the rom is updated. A quick way to verify that is to check if you have official lollipop. The long way is to remove the back cover and check a couple of components.(Guides available online)

  • you INFAMOUSLY forgot to mention in the headline … that ,
    it’ll cost the consumer a kidney too :D

    • The 810 has been fixed. Z5, Mi Note Pro and a few others seem to have fixed the problem or maybe Qualcomm fixed it and OEMs just put in a backup plan as well with those heat pipes and thermal pastes.

  • Price should have been Rs. 45,000 (with taxes)… This phone costs Rs. 40000 in foreign countries.. Fuck thsi government

  • Oh please! To everyone blaming taxes for this silly price, don’t taxes apply on their other phones like Mate S which is priced around 65k (available for 61k at homeshopping) and in USD it is priced at $700-$800 (Google it)!

  • Too expensive and not that up to date either with the Hardware tech and its a Huawei. In addition, i have heard that the glass back sometimes break automatically when moved from extreme hot temperature to cold temperature. I would rather go for the Z5 Premium Dual or wait for the galaxy S7.

    • It’s a nexus phone made by Huawei. This isn’t your typical Huawei phone. There is no news about the 6p glass back cracking. because you know what, it DOESN’T have a glass back. It’s metal back. Jeez atleast look at the images posted on this site.

      • Dear the camera module on the back has a glass layer on it, i am talking about that. No need to get cocky bro, its just stupid and you didn’t design it

  • Selling my Huawei Nexus 6P.
