Google Nexus 6P starts shipping in the US


Not long after Google released the Nexus 5X, the company is now ready to launch its second stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow smartphone: the larger and more expensive Nexus 6P. Some users in the US are already being notified that their Nexus 6P is shipping - thus, all customers who had the chance to pre-order the 6P from Google Store (before being sold out) should expect to receive it anytime now.

As you probably already know, the Nexus 6P is manufactured by Huawei (unlike the 5X, which is made by LG), and is offered unlocked for $499 (32 GB variant), $549 (64 GB), or $649 (128 GB).

The 6P is the most advanced Nexus smartphone to date, sporting a 5.7-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) AMOLED display while being powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor. The device also features a fingerprint scanner (dubbed Nexus Imprint), stereo front-facing speakers, a 12.3 MP rear camera, 8 MP front-facing camera, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3450 mAh battery. To find out more about the new handset, make sure to read our Nexus 6P review.

Have you pre-ordered a Nexus 6P? Or do you plan to order one anytime soon?

BTW QFuse is a hardware feature by Qualcomm, not Google/Huawei/LG Can we not jump to conclusions yet? We still don't know what the implications are if it gets tripped We do know that it doesn't affect warranty, since rooting/unlocking bootloader isn't against Google's warranty And that Nexus Imprint still works Google's always made is easy for rooters/flashers, so I don't see it being a problem Worse case scenario probablu is you won't be able use Android Pay (but Android Pay isn't even available for most users since its US only)

Well I would have had one in the way. Took me 2 weeks to decide between this the note 5 and the iPhone 6s plus. Now this Qfuse deal. Killed all of my excitement. Just wait and see I guess...

If Qfuse killed your consideration of the Nexus 6P you were faking and never really considering it. C'mon, we all know that rooting and ROMing phones voids the warranty. If you rooted a phone before and tried to cover it up then you were trying to lie to the company to still get warranty service after their TOS specifically says rooting will void the warranty. That's fraud.

Qfuse killed my excitement. Could be a deal breaker. I use Apple pay on my jailbroken iPhone quite often. As I said gotta wait and see if the qfuse is actually active. If it is active, what will trip it. If it is tripped. Will that affect android pay or not. Too many variables right at this point in time to keep my pre order. If it turns out it doesn't affect anything or its not even active. Then I'll reorder it. I'm actually quite excited about the 6p. It supports tmobile WiFi calling. Which is extremely important to me and why I've not been able to consider any other phones that are not on tmobile like the Z5. I may even let go of my unlimited plan with tmobile and go to PROJECT-FI. So I'm order words. I actually did/do have full intentions of purchasing the 6p. 6p or the iphone6s plus. One or the other....

If it wasn't just a big S6 with a pen I would have already gotten it. I had the note 3 and loved it. I may go for it now.

I went from an s6 to the note 5. Really is not much different except it's bigger and has the S-Pen which is the whole reason i got it.

People say this like it was a bad thing. But I guess for some, removable batteries and SD cards are truly important. I'm not judging. To each their own.

A big GS6 with a pen is a big phone of the year 2015 with a pen. That's awesome....

Pricey, and we want stock. Otherwise yes, the Note 5 is a great piece of hardware.

I'd love to preorder it. I was waiting on the reviews to see if it got hot. Waited too long. Maybe there will be a deal during black Friday.

Be here Monday. Can't wait. The 6s Plus. It's more of a Beast then a phone.

It an iphone nothing more, not a beast for sure. I would say v10 is camera beast, note 5 is functionality beast. 6S plus is 6S with larger screen, bigger battery and OIS, that's it.

26. fyah_king unregistered

It is a beast, since it's bigger and heavier than a note 5.

25. fyah_king unregistered

I will cancel my order if I don't get it by the end of the month.
