The Nexus 6 will be up for pre-order on October 29

Nexus 6 (3)

Motorola’s Nexus 6 has been revealed to go up for pre-order next Wednesday, October 29. Google said in its official announcement of the device that it would be available for pre-order on that date and sure enough, that timeframe has come true. The Nexus 6 page on the Play Store is now listing the device as being available for pre-order on October 29. Both colors of blue and white as well as both storage options of 32GB and 64GB will be available for pre-order.

The Nexus 6 is incredibly powerful with specs like a 5.9-inch QHD (2560×1440) display, 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, Adreno 420 GPU, 13-megapixel rear camera and a 3,220mAh battery. All of that is paired with Android 5.0 Lollipop, the latest version of Android that’s complete with Material Design.

Are you planning to purchase the Nexus 6?

    i guess i will go for note 4 as price is high on nexus 6. i guess that is what google wants anyway.

    • Yvestr

      The note 4 price is even higher. Look at lollipop touchwiz leak and that will make you change your mind. I cannot stand touchwiz anymore. Too badbas I think Samsung has a very good phone hardware wise.

    Way too much money.
    I’ll keep using my Nexus 5 ….Thanks.

      I second this. Nope!! I am not buying. In my case it’s more the size that’s gonna turn me away. I can deal with the price granted the specs are spectacular but size is a no go for me. I will gladly give Google my money if it was like 5″. Now I am gonna have to choose between the Moto X or the Sony xperia Z3.

      First Ellie Miller’s husband is Gracepoint murderer and now this…

  • Danny

    I will definitely be buying it! I cannot wait! Almost the same dimensions as the Note 4 but with a slightly bigger screen and cheaper with pure Android goodness? To me it’s a no-brainer…

  • Srini

    I just need to compare & see how it stands up against the rest of the population. I mean, how big does it really feel, as say, against Nexus 5, iphone 6+, note 4 etc.

    But the rest of the specs blew me away – QHD screen, Battery, Processor etc.

  • mprziv

    Glad to see so many people not buying one. More for those of us who want one.

    • Marksheen

      yea becasue everyone is looking o buy more than one

  • Mix

    My Nexus 5 is here to stay,
    and should it ever bend or break,
    another Nexus 5 will soon replace.

    With the Nexus 6 being $650 I save nothing from buying it off contract and it costs even more on contract. I get $20 off each month on my bill for owning my own phone so $480 is the ‘savings threshold’ and $650 (probably $700 or more CDN) is crazy pricey.

  • ewew

    I remember a few weeks ago when iphone was revealed with 5.5″ screen everyone said how stupid is was

    Now this phone has even bigger screen everyone wants one..

    • Marksheen

      They’re no different than isheep

  • dave

    Was going to get one due to it being pure Android and having stereo speakers, until I discovered:

    1. Camera doesn’t have phase focus and sample shots looked mediocre.
    2. Older amoled tech than the note4, prob note 3 tech.
    3. It cost almost as much as a note 4 but without the stylus and many other features.

  • Tom Staggs

    Too big for me, size and price! Here I was waiting using my Nexus 4 until it came out.

  • underseaglider

    Nexus brand is one of the emerging smartphone brands today and they are proving their competence because of the models they are releasing on the market.

  • Justin

    I was all set to trade in my Nexus 5 for the 6. Then, I saw someone with the new iPhone 6plus, and I thought “that thing is huge…way too big….” Looked it up and its only 5.5″ so I have a feeling I would hate the size of the N6. Bummed, as I love the look of it.

  • Mike White

    I will definitely be buying the Nexus 6.
