Leak shows Verizon Nexus 6 launch date of February 26

Verizon Nexus 6 launch date

Good news for Nexus fans and Verizon customers; we now know the launch date for the Verizon-branded Nexus 6! A leak of a Verizon slide shows a few launch dates, including February 26 for the Nexus 6. So if you’ve been waiting to buy the device but don’t want to pay the full off-contract price, your chance is coming soon.

The Verizon Nexus 6 will be close to the standard Play Store model, but with Verizon branding and likely some bloat to go along with it. Luckily, it shouldn’t be SIM locked out of the box, so you will probably be able to take it to other carriers just fine. If some branding and software doesn’t bother you on a Nexus device, this is as pure as a carrier phone will get.

There are also launch dates for the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, which will launch March 5, and the Droid Turbo Sapphire Blue, which will launch March 12. The Galaxy Core Prime is a budged device you likely don’t care about (an 800×480 display isn’t impressive these days), and the Droid Turbo is just a new color rather than a new product.

    that is way too much money for a phone with so-so battery life and so-so storage and a soso camera.

      so-so storage & a so-so battery life? Have you actually seen & used the phone or you another “genius” who espouses the opinions of others as your own Robairto? I own the Nexus 6& I have no problem with the storage, as 32 GB gives me plenty of room for my apps. Pretty much everything else is stored at various cloud storage services (i.e., dropbox, G-Drive, etc). Considering I immediately unlocked & rooted my Nexus 6 when I received it, I can use root stick mount to be able to use a thumb drive to store things that I don’t want out on the cloud. As for the camera, if you’re buying a phone based on the camera, your priorities are definitely out of whack, IMHO. There’s a metric ton of other functionalities that should take precedenceover the camera.

    I don’t care now as finally I became successful in grabbing the giant Nexus 6 directly from Google’s Play Store. I have this device in my hands and the best feature I like in it is faster charging powered by quick charge 2.0 technology. I could say it is the best device I have ever had till date.
