Verizon rep confirms March 12th launch online for Nexus 6, in stores March 19th

Nexus 6 to launch March 12th for Verizon's online customers, a week later in the stores


While there has been talk of a March 12th launch of the Nexus 6 on Verizon (with VoLTE we might add), the nation's largest carrier has been pretty mum about this with nothing official being released. One of our loyal readers has a Verizon upgrade burning a hole in his pocket and was visiting the site when he was asked if he wanted to chat with a rep.

After replying in the affirmative, our source decided to ask the rep about the Nexus 6 he has been thinking about purchasing. The rep, listed as Beth M., revealed that the stock Android phablet will be launched online on March 12th, followed a week later by availability in Verizon stores. That is March 19th for those too excited to calculate correctly.

The Motorola built Nexus 6 features a 6-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. The pixel density works out to 493pi. Under the hood is a quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 CPU with the Adreno 420 GPU handling graphics. 3GB of RAM is on board and there is 32GB/64GB of native storage. No microSD slot is available on the device. A 13MP camera, with an aperture of f/2.0, is on back. The front-facing snapper is 2MP and a 3220mAh keeps the lights on. Android 5.0 is pre-installed.

Just a few days ago, we reported exclusively about marketing material for the Nexus 6 arriving at a Verizon retail location. Now, it looks like we might know exactly when the phablet will be available to Verizon customers. Mark your calendars accordingly!

Thanks for the tip!

They just keep f@cking up the Nexus line. At this point Google and Motorola shouldn't allow Verizon to sell it. I can't stand Verizon being a bully against Android OEMs. All Android makers should stand up to the US carriers. If Apple can release a phone with out any carrier branding or bloat ware why cant Android makers do the same.

Problem is Google/Moto dont have that power
They dont sell ~100millions of phones a year like Apple

We need all the Android OEMs to team up and force the carriers out

VZW has a deal with the DROID line up, so they wont release anything when they launch a DROID phone. They launched the DROID Turbo, and don't want any sales taken away from it, hence the delay on the Nexus phone. Imagine if they released them on close to each other, which one would sell more? Most likely the Nexus.
