Gold Google Nexus 6P Special Edition now available to buy (in Japan)

Gold Google Nexus 6P Special Edition now available to buy (in Japan)
In most markets, the Google Nexus 6P can be bought in three color versions: aluminum (silver), graphite (black), and frost (white). However, as previously reported, the handset has a fourth color variant: gold. Starting today, this can be purchased in Japan, via Google Store, where it's called Nexus 6P Special Edition.

Apart from the gold exterior (minus the black front and black camera bump), the Nexus 6P Special Edition doesn't seem to be offering anything else that can be deemed special. The handset has the same price as the other three color variants, and can be purchased in 32 GB, 64 GB, or 128 GB flavors.

As you may have heard by now, the Nexus 6P is manufactured by Huawei, and is Google's latest flagship smartphone (being introduced at the same time with the cheaper LG-made Nexus 5X). Its highlight features include an aluminum chassis, a 5.7-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, fingerprint scanner, an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, and a 12.3 MP rear camera with laser auto focus and 4K video recording.

Google didn't say anything regarding the availability of the gold Nexus 6P outside of Japan, so we don't know if this version of the handset will make it to other markets.

Update: It looks like the gold Nexus 6P is currently out of stock in Japan.
