Motorola Nexus 6 and HTC Nexus 9 to come in black and white, the phablet starts off at 32 GB storage

This year's Nexus devices, in the chassis of Motorola Nexus 6 and HTC Nexus 9, look poised for imminent announcement, given the smorgasbord of leaks and tips received so far about those. Out of the latest leak, which reveals the not-so-palatable price of these spec monsters, come other interesting nuggets of info.

The Motorola Nexus 6 phablet, and HTC Nexus 9 slate, will apparently be offered in at least two basic colors. The German posting that hinted at the hearty unsubsidized pricing of these two, also revealed that there are plenty of model variations, based on color and internal storage amount. Both devices will be offered in black or white, and come with either 32 GB or 64 GB of storage. Gone are the days of low initial storage amount for the Nexus gang, and the chopped out specs list, as these two are the bee's knees when it comes to specs, at least based on the rumors, and are outfitted with a respectable internal memory counts, even for the basic versions, which might explain the higher pricing, compared to the Nexus gang before them.

Where are you getting 32 or 64? Because the leaked image clearly shows 16gb and 32gb. No where does it even have a 64gb version....

Not to be rude. But didn't we already figure this out from the last Nexus post?

Could be the single biggest tech release day of the year tomorrow! Nexus 9 and possibly even the Nexus 6 introducing the long awaited Android L. HTC's Nexus 9 being the first tablet to throttle on the beastly NVIDIA Tegra K1 (Denver) SoC. On the other hand Apple Inc. releasing Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, the iPad Air 2 running the Cupertino's fastest Cyclone A8X chip, with 2 Gigs of RAM (Finally!) on iOS 8.1 and possibly a 27 inch iMac with a 5120 x 2880 "5K" Retina HD display. (HolyMotherofSteveJobs! if that happens). Denver vs Cyclone in benchmarks! ‪#‎geekgasmic‬

Looks like you get what you pay for. Still a lot cheaper than the $825 AT+T 32GB Note 4. Or even the Verizon $700 32GB note 4. But with no SD card slot, I would have to get the 64GB one with no removable battery, I suppose. I burn through a battery on my phone about every 6-8 months - so this worries me.
