The Huawei Nexus 6P is the current flagship offering from the Nexus range. While most of the talk at the moment does surround the upcoming Nexus device(s) which are rumored to be coming from HTC, until they are announced the Nexus 6P does remain the best option for those looking for a Nexus experience. However, in lieu of the upcoming Nexus smartphones, it is already starting to look a little bleak for the Nexus 6P, as the Google Store seems to be running low on stock.
A number of the variants (beit storage or color) of the Nexus 6P on the Google Store are showing no stock at all. However, there are one or two variants which you can still buy like the Graphite and Matte Gold colored options. What is far more revealing though, is that a report out of Mobilesyrup today is stating that a Google spokesperson is confirming to them that Google “currently have no plans to restock the Nexus 6P”. Of course, this is yet to be confirmed by Google directly and there is no information on whether the same applies to the other current Nexus smartphone, the Nexus 5X.
Either way, if this is the case, then needless to say the already seemingly low levels of stock on the Google Store are likely to become even lower in due course, as the remaining stock depletes further. Which also does mean if you do plan on picking up a Nexus 6P, you might want to do so sooner rather than later. Of course, whether or not Google is planning to discontinue sales of the Google Nexus 6P from the Google Store, does not mean that you cannot pick it up through third-party retailers. Amazon still does have stock of the Nexus 6P in Gold, Silver and Graphite and priced cheaper than the Google Store, $439 compared to $499 for the 32GB version and $499 compared to $549 for the 64GB version.
Of course, to some this will be as to be expected. With the upcoming Nexus smartphones for 2016 nearing their release, it does stand to reason that the previous models will start to see their manufacturing and availability toning down somewhat. Although, some might question whether this happening now, is a little too early. Either way, if you do want to pick up a Nexus 6P, do so while you certainly can.
