Nexus 6 passes through the FCC in time for preorders this week
posted by Michael H. / Oct 25, 2014, 12:30 PM
The North American model has a solid number of wireless bands inside, including CDMA for Verizon and Sprint, GSM for AT&T and T-Mobile, and LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 17, 25, 26, and 41. Oddly, while the international version has the usual GSM bands, the only LTE bands it supports are 5 and 41, which only help in China, South Korea, and a couple other regions. This is strange because the official Google spec sheet says there should be LTE support internationally for bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 19, 20, 28, and 41. Of course, the North American model is also missing a couple LTE bands (3 and 29) from its FCC filing.
We'll have to see if that means anything moving forward, but it looks like Nexus 6 preorders will be ready to go on October 29th.

Guy it's an ULTRA high end device... The price is great for all the top end specs it has. People need to chill on the price, I have absolutely no problem with the price. $699.99 for a 64GB model is freaking awesome... That's the phone I am going to buy... ASAP!

Google put an embargo on reviews until the pre-orders are in. Usually means the phone has some problems that will pop up soon after real people get the phones.

Actually, companies putting embargos on reviews is very common. Regardless, it wouldn't be anywhere near as much of a debacle as the iPhone 6 release. Besides, Motorola has done nothing but stellar work this past year, why would anyone believe that their Nexus 6 would be any different?
