Pre-orders for Nexus 6 to officially begin October 29

Pre-orders for Nexus 6 to officially begin October 29

Google has quietly placed a pre-order date for the new Nexus 6 smartphone in Google Play, and that time is a short-but-long 9 days away. Set your reminders to log-in, and check Google Play on October 29th to place a pre-order for either a 32GB Nexus 6, which will cost $649 SIM-free, or $699 for a 64GB model.

The Nexus 6 will also be available through the top five carriers in the United States, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Verizon. It is safe to assume that for all but T-Mobile, the carriers will have a subsidized pricing option available with a two-year contract. No pricing has been formally announced yet, but given the spec boost over Motorola’s own Moto X, which has a two-year price of $99 on AT&T and Verizon, it is not a reach to think the Nexus 6 will have a $200 subsidized price.

The Nexus 6 is Google going big with Motorola, presumably the last major release by the company before it shifts ownership to Lenovo. A pure Android device, the Nexus 6 will pack the new Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system out of the box, present the eyes with a 5.96-inch 1440x2560 AMOLED display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, snappy performance with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 CPU, and pretty much top-of-the-line everything else.

While there will be a North American and International variant of the Nexus 6, both will support just about every carrier frequency band from top-to-bottom. The Nexus 6 also features new rapid charging technology, dubbed the “Motorola Turbo Charger,” which can provide several hours of usage with just 15 minutes of being plugged in.

No official release date is posted at the time we are writing this, but it has been reported that the Nexus 6 will drop on November 12th.  The Verge reported earlier about pricing and the pre-order date, and those two tid-bits have proved to be spot-on.

Which color Nexus 6 are you going to grab? Midnight Blue, or Cloud White?

Too bad Google Play in my country doesn't sell Nexus devices, or else it would be a piece of cake to buy a Nexus 9 right now.

Why? If you can't afford a flagship don't buy one. I don't get why you people want it to be cheap if has better specs than anything out there. It's a flagship android phone with out the Touchwiz, Sense, or any other crap UI. It's worth $299.99 and I hope it does come with a high price tag so cheap people like you can't afford it.

At least they're finally going with 32gb instead of the measly 16gb.

I was about to say the same thing. 32GB should be standard for a flagship phone.

I keep jumping back and forth on the color. I've always went with anything not white but I may go white with this beautiful device.

I'd pick this over the Z2v any day. It's superior in every way possible except maybe for the camera and water proofing.

If I was able to afford it I buy the blue one (since is not available in black). But I cannot afford to buy it at those prices, and I don't buy carriers phones (no matter the price) because I don't like their useless bloatware or to see carriers (Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile) logos in the phones...

I've heard that the nexus 6 supports a wake up phrase from standby. Is there any truth to this?

Hope not. Usually that stuff ain't so great for battery life.

And personally, I am tired of Google's "always on / always listening / always recording" business model.

Too big google and HTC !!!

HTC's woes will take a while before it subsides. This is where they cold have made a lot of sales but then they decided to make a phablet bigger than the already large 5.5"

Personal opinion warning!!!:

To bad it's Motorola. Otherwise I'd love to have a non bloated pure Google device.

While I was going to get the Note 4, I think I might switch to a pure Google experience. These specs are the only thing that could sway me from the Note 4, nothing else has...love it Moto FTW!!!!!
