In Android language, today is very much Nexus day and Google has been holding their event and unveiling a bunch of new Nexus products. Although, all the products have yet to be formally introduced, by far, the big headline devices on show are the two new leading Nexus devices, which have now been confirmed as the LG Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6P.
In terms of the Huawei Nexus 6P and following in the tradition of the previous Nexus 6, the Nexus 6P is a large device and comes sporting a 5.7-inch display that comes with a WQHD resolution. Inside, this is the flagship Nexus device for this year and is equipped with 3GB RAM along with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor. While the device has already been confirmed to be available in four colors (Aluminium, Graphite, Frost and Gold) and three storage variants (32GB, 64GB and 128GB). However, now we are starting to hear a little more about the availability. At least for those planning on picking up the Nexus 6P in the U.S.
If you are thinking about picking up the Nexus 6P, then Google has confirmed pre-orders for the device will go live today and you will be able to order the device within the next few hours. The Nexus 6 will be available in the U.S. directly from the Google Store. In terms of pricing, the Nexus 6P will be available from the Google Store and starting from $499.99 for the 32GB version. The 64GB version will be available for $599.99 while the 128GB version will be available for $649.99. In addition, all purchases of the Nexus 6P in the U.S. will come with 90 days free access to Google’s Play Music service. While those who pre-order in the U.S. will also come with $50 Google Play gift card. Last up, Google has confirmed that the Nexus 6P will be compatible with Google’s own network, Project Fi. Not forgetting, it will come unlocked and therefore should be workable on any of the major U.S. networks. In terms of the other networks, so far, Google has not made any indications on whether it will be directly available through other carriers, although, Google did state it will be available through other retailers, without revealing specific names. Lastly, Google has confirmed that devices will start shipping in October.
