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.
