The Nexus 6P is now completely out of stock at the Google Store

There's been much fanfare with regards to what Google may have up its sleeve for this year's Nexus (or maybe not Nexus) smartphone line. 2015's Nexus 5X and in particular the laudable Nexus 6P have demonstrated why it is that consumers have such an affinity to the Big G's handset range. This year, HTC looks set to be taking care of the manufacturing end with two oft-leaked handsets codenamed 'Sailfish' and 'Marlin'. In lieu of a concrete launch date for the elusive duo, the fact that the 6P is now out of stock at the Google Store may indicate that some new hardware is on the horizon. 

Keeping mindful of the fact that lack of inventory doesn't always mean a product is for the scrapheap, a Google spokesperson has apparently informed mobilesyrup that the search giant "currently [has] no plans to restock the Nexus 6P." Not a definitive answer, by any means, but given that the phablet has been such a darling of the Nexus lineup in recent times, here's another good reason to believe that the device is approaching the end. 

Earlier today, the Marlin side of HTC's supposed Nexus duo was leaked through AnTuTu, while the Sailfish variant was outed last week through the same benchmarking app. Both are set to align with this year's flagship status quo by bundling Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4 gigs of RAM under the hood. Each is said to be blessed with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, which prospective buyers will surely hope can replicate the impressive point-and-shoot experience offered by the seemingly outgoing 6P.

It's no surprise to see the Nexus 6P reaching its twilight given the typical one-year life cycles of smartphones. Having said that, we'll be sad to see it go, and if you'd like to get your hands on a gleaming new Nexus 6P, it can still be had over at Newegg and a handful of other online stores. 

The Nexus 5X remains up for grabs over at the Google Store, though it would seem that once the remaining inventory has gone, it probably won't be restocked in a hurry.

Wonder if we will hear an announcement before Apple unveils the iPhone.

best phone of 2015 , hope google doesn't take a step back this year

They already have taken a step back...... A smaller screen sent me packing for a note 7. I just received my tracking number today. So long until you become more consistent in your size and design Google. Love the nexus 6 o.g., and the og. Nexus 5.

I fully support them scaling back from 5.9" to 5.7" to 5.5". I call it "right-sizing." I might even trade my 6P for Marlin if the screen/camera/price are right.

You would also probably get better battery life than the 6P.

Those are my two driving factors. Battery life and size. Battery life, well, all the SD808 and 810 devices were pretty poor. Size - I wanted something in the 5.2-5.7" range, I wanted an AMOLED screen, but with the dual speakers, it's a really hefty device. Now I want something the size of an S7 Edge.

The real screen size is going to be like 5.2in due to on screen buttons. I hate it!

So my 6P is more like 5.4" with the on-screen buttons. But I still get the full width of the screen, and when watching video and some games, the buttons are hidden. It never bothers me, and I never felt cheated out of screen real estate.

Would Nexus 6p also qualify for og?

Wow, already almost a year since this came out, seems like it was just yesterday...

Not quite a year. The 6P was announced at the end of Sept and released in November. But with the SD820 being a major step up from the 810, it makes sense to cut the lifecycle a bit.

That's why he said "almost a year".

Only the 32gb aluminum is out of stock in the US.... If that constitutes "all" then my 64gb aluminum Nexus 6p is a lie

I noticed this, too. I went as far as almost submitting an order for another 64GB Graphite to see if it would give me a ship date. No indication the phone is out of stock. So here we are speculating on spurious info.

Even Google knows the phone sucks. Thats why they don't sell it anymore

Are you just going to keep making stupid comments like this, or are you actually going to contribute something substantial in the future?

Contributing by speaking the truth.

Ok troll, keep telling yourself that. Of course, as revealed in post 9, only one color and one storage capacity is out of stock. So....yeah.

6p is still a great buy. The only thing you'll miss out on is any exclusive feature new nexus hardware will have and if the handset if daydream ready or not.

I am kinda glad I bought it recently at Best Buy and the 64gb was 150 dollar off. Don't care about the HTC Marlin since there's no front facing speakers.

Can we stop with the scare tactic headlines, please? The comments speak for it all.

I would have bought a 6P if that bend test video hadn't come out. It looks so brittle.

I've owned it since a month after launch. Not a single issue in that department. If you really look at the video, when he's bending the phone, his fingers are turning white, which means considerable force was used. Add to that the guy is muscular as hell. Google images of Jerryrigeverything. Like this one (He's the guy dressed as Bane).

Like other chamfered aluminum phones, it can nick easily. Never had an issue of it bending, though. I've kept mine in a bumper case, more for drop protection than anything.
