Some Google Nexus 6P shipments delayed due to "strong demand" in the US

Some Google Nexus 6P shipments delayed due to "strong demand" in the US
Although a few lucky Nexus 6P buyers have been notified that their phone started shipping last week, things aren't that great for other customers. It turns out that Google doesn't have enough Nexus 6P units to send to all those who've pre-ordered the handset from Google Store in the US. Thus, the company began sending emails to inform some customers that shipments have been delayed until the first half of November.

Google says that it's working "to meet the strong demand" for various Nexus 6P models, though it's not clear exactly what color variants and memory options are affected by the stock shortage. On a more positive note, Google is offering $25 refunds to customers who are receiving emails announcing the delay. 

In addition to being available from Google Store, the Nexus 6P can also be pre-ordered from Huawei's official US website. However, Huawei (which is the manufacturer of the device) says that it can't ship the 6P before late November. So Google Store remains the better option, assuming you want to get a Nexus 6P as fast as possible.

The Nexus 6P is one of the world's first devices to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box (alongside the LG-made Nexus 5X). Prices for the handset, which is being sold only unlocked, start at $499. For more about the new Google smartphone, check out our Nexus 6P review.
