Yes, the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X will work on Verizon and Sprint
Google today started taking pre-orders for the brand new Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X in select markets. In the US, the two new handsets can currently be ordered only via Google Store, unlocked, and it looks like they won't be offered through any carriers. While most unlocked smartphones only work with GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, we're happy to inform you that, just as expected, the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X are also compatible with Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and US Cellular.

The official Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X specs lists (found on Google's website) confirm that the North American versions of the two devices support CDMA bands 0, 1, and 10, thus being compatible with all three CDMA carriers mentioned above. Basically, if you buy a Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P, you'll be able to use it on any US carrier, as the handsets support a wide variety of cellular bands (GSM, CDMA, WCDMA, LTE).

As a reminder, the Google Nexus 5X costs $379 (16 GB), or $429 (32 GB). Prices for the larger and more advanced Nexus 6P start at $499 (32 GB), going up to $549 for the 64 GB model, and to $649 for the 128 GB one.

True it wont stop them but here is the thing Google is slowly but surely killing off its OEMs who are they going to turn to? Windows that who. Everytime Google makes a better and better phone the OEMs will start to realize Google doesn't care. Then Microsoft will turn google back to the thing you search on the internet for BOOOM

I don't search the internet for Google. I use Google to search the internet.

So the Nexus program is going to drive Samsung, LG, HTC, Sony, Motorola, Asus, and all the Chinese makes away from Android and they're all going to sell Windows 10 phones instead? Tell me another, oh wise prophet!

Your fanboyism knows no bounds. You sound ridiculous. Stop it. No one is turning to that failed OS called Windows.

Didn't watch the keynote announcement, will these be sold outright like the Moto X or will carriers be selling them also?

The Moto X Pure has advanced calling on Verizon. I'm pretty sure the Nexus 6 has wifi calling on T-Mobile. Don't count them out yet.

The more I see that 6P back, the more I obsess over that weird periscope-looking, Bender-faced camera apparatus. I hated it at first, now I spite-like it? I don't think I've ever spite-liked a phone cover before.

I wonder the people who are negative about these phones must still can't afford it , so they say bad things about it.
