Google Nexus 6P price and release date in US, UK and EU

Google Nexus 6P price and release date in US, UK and EU
Coded under the internal name Huawei Angler, the new Google flagship is now official as the Nexus 6P, carrying a grand, bright 5.7" display, just as rumored, with a 2560 x 1440 Quad HD resolution. This Huawei-made Nexus has a 159.3 X 77.8 X 7.3 mm chassis, which isn't making it the most compact 5.7-incher out there, like the Note5, due to the largish front stereo speakers near the top and bottom of the display.

There is a 12.3 MP rear camera and Huawei's typical 8 MP front shooter that is present on most of its flagships now. Interestingly, the phone features a barometer inside, so there might be apps or features taking advantage of its atmospheric pressure measurements.

The star of the show, of course, as with every Nexus device, is Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and every bit of these specs indicates that this Quad HD Huawei will be the poster child for the newest Android version, while the LG-made Nexus 5X that was announced concurrently will take the back seat. 

The thing that can make or break Nexus handsets is pricing, though, as last year's Nexus 6 can attest, so how much for the 6P? Well, Google isn't selling the handset at cost, it seems, as it can be yours in exchange for $499 for the 32 GB version, $549 for the 64 GB version, and $649 for the decked-out 128-gigger. In Europe that tag might go up to €649 for the basic one, hopefully just for the preorder period. In the U.K., Ireland, and Japan, Google will partner with retailers and carriers, too, not only its official store as in the US. The Nexus 5X and 6P in the UK will go for £339 and £449, respectively, and that's for the basic 16 GB and 32 GB versions of the two. 

As for availability, the phones will be available on preorder as soon as today, with first deliveries shipped out some time in October, likely in the second half.

NO SD, NO REMOVABLE BATTERY, NO WIRELESS / QUICK CHARGING ALL make the Nexus phones FAILURES. The 6p should be $399.

No nexus has SD card slot, and plus there is 128gb option. Mega fail comment. It has quick charging. Another fail.

The 6P does NOT have quick charging. the 6P is a FAILURE.

It has quick charging, they said it loud enough on the launch event.

Seriously? You talk about something you don't know! Did you at wath the conference at least? Of course not because they said nexus 6p supports fast charging. OMG.

You're stupid. However you are right and wrong at the same time. The device doesn't have Quick Charge 2.0 like Samsung devices. Hwoever, what it does have is the Type C connector. Depending on what Type C spec they are using, the specs aloows for "faster charging". PA posted this article recently -http://www.phonearena.com/news/5-reasons-you-may-want-to-hold-off-USB-Type-C-smartphones-for-now_id73915 According to The Verge, the 6P does support fast charging http://www.theverge.com/2015/9/29/9412113/hands-on-with-new-nexus-6p Paragraph 5 says and I quoted it word for word via copy/paste "The Nexus 6P has a 5.7-inch WQHD AMOLED display that spans almost the entire front of the phone, two front-facing speakers, and, like the new Nexus 5X, has a fingerprint sensor on the back of the device. This can be used to unlock the device itself or give access to apps within the phone. Another expected feature add: the Nexus 6P has a USB-Type C charging port and supports fast-charging."

Then you consider iphone as fail too? SD is no need,the phone is faster and its tradition of Nexus,wireless charging is impossible with metal construction,removable battery? No need,im not having one since 2012,you just change phone faster than wasting a battery

Really? the iPhone doesn't have that either. People who want Nexus phones will buy them. What you mentioned may be selling point for some, but not most. All OEM's still offer an option with what you said

The phone dimensions are 159x76x7.3 mm . So its thinner than Note 5 and plus with just 5mm of height more than Note 5, it has squeezed in dual front speakers. So the whole negative tone on first paragraph is BS. Without the front speakers can imagine every single review whining about that as a negative and how their hands block the speaker placed anywhere else.

And 500mAh more battery than Note 5

I guess these things don't sell in Canada since Canada isn't one of the preorder countries. Which is interesting because usually North America is one area logistically.

They said they were working to bring them to other countries within the next weeks and also they said they were reaching operators and retail stores to sell them as well, these might be the most mainstream nexus phones ever.

I just got my Moto X in this morning and i like it but I'm actually more impressed by the pricing for both devices especially the 6p 128gb seeing as the comparable iPhone 6 Plus from Apple is $950. I wish the 6P have been between $600 to make it even more compelling. Depending on what the reviews say i might just send the X back to Motorola.

I'm skeptical about the camera and how they cleverly evaded to talk about aperture and how they briefly denied OIS. I don't like that on a $500+ phone, I could get a G4 for less and I'd bet all my cows it produces better pictures...

Finally Marques Brownlee will now be forced to do a review of a Huawei device for the first time in his life. Muahahahahahahahahah.

I like his YouTube videos and I thought he was cool. Is he some kind of China company racist or something?

14. Bondurant

Posts: 781; Member since: Jun 04, 2014

No he is not. But more like a stock android fanboy(in a positive way), and so at most he reviews the One plus which is close to stock, but no other Chinese phones. And other reason probably because most of the China phones never make it to US.

28. TechieXP1969

Posts: 14967; Member since: Sep 25, 2013

Well Chinese phone have never been sold stateside so there is no reason to review them.

Hmmm. With pricing like this I'm more and more leaning towards the $349 BLU Pure XL 64 GB. I think the Pure XL is my next phone.

$649 for 128GB. Apple, Samsung; you all see that? That is WTF you need to do. At most Apple and Samsung should charge no more than $799 for 128GB with 64GB at 699 and 32GB should just be dropped period. They both would still make plenty of money. Samsung, now hear this. If I ever buy another device from you, it must offer 128GB if no sdcard and it can't exceed $799. if not, I will keep my S6 Edge+ until it completely dies. If you want my money that is my rule. because since you make your own storage, its costs you the same amount of money to produce 16,32,64,128,256...whatever the size. Give more storage or watch your sales go down further. I know with the S6 models you are feeling a pinch. The Note especially should have came 64/128 period with no 32GB option. The S models yes could offer 3 sizes. If other OEM's can offer 128GB of storage for $700, so can Apple and Samsung. Apple can do whatever because I'm not buying an iPhone. But Samsung, this is a wakeup call for you. if not, when the S7 comes out I am going to blast you with a YouTube video that I know for a fact will get 1M hits in the first day.
