This year, Google partnered for the first time with Chinese manufacturer Huawei for the creation of one of the Nexus phones that got released recently. The phone is called Nexus 6P as it is considered the “premium” option, and it features a design based on aluminum that makes it stand out from other handsets. Additionally, it integrates some of the most powerful specs available, so most reviews have praised its snappy performance and the high-quality of its components. The phone has been available in several markets in three color options including Aluminum, Graphite, and Frost. But the phone was released recently in a Gold color option as a special edition in Japan.
While the Gold Nexus 6P sold out when it launched, it became available shortly after and it has been available ever since. It is still unknown if the Gold variant will be available in additional markets although it has been suggested that it might arrive in the US sold exclusively at Best Buy. For those who don’t want to wait for an official announcement about this, an eBay user is selling the Gold Nexus 6P for the outrageous amount of $1999. The price of the Nexus 6P is another relevant feature of the phone, as it is currently selling for less than other flagships even with its powerful specs. The seller seems to have a good reputation and free shipping in offered to some countries, plus he mentions that the phone is brand new.
The user is selling the Nexus 6P in other color options starting at $749, which is still higher than the price of other retailers, but not nearly as expensive as the Gold color option. Interestingly, the price is the same for the Gold variant with 32 GB and the one with 64 GB, each listing has only 2 units available. It seems likely that additional users will start selling this special edition, probably at lower prices. Although, if the phone ever becomes available in the US, it will probably be priced the same as the other color options as the specs are identical, the only difference being the color of the chassis, so it might be a better idea to wait a little more for the announcement which might take place at the CES 2016.
