It’s been a few weeks since Google announced the Nexus 6, which will launch on major US carriers. T-Mobile has already announced the handset will be available from the carrier on November 12th, and now, Sprint and AT&T have spilled the beans on the pricing and availability as well.
Sprint announced the Google Nexus 6 will hit retail on November 14th through Sprint direct ship sales channels, including Sprint Stores, Sprint Business Sales, Web Sales and Telesales. Qualified customers can grab the handset on Sprint’s Easy Pay plan for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of 29 each.
“Nexus 6 sets the stage for exciting new developments in smartphones with a stunning 6-inch Quad HD display, perfect for movies, videos and surfing the Web,” said Doug Kaufman, director-Device Strategy, Sprint. “With pricing plans like the Sprint Family Share Pack, families can take advantage of all the features of Nexus 6 without worrying about expensive rate plans or running out of data each month.”
AT&T will also start taking pre-orders of the Google Nexus 6 from November 12th, but didn’t give out an exact availability date. The carrier will offer Nexus 6 on-contract as well as through the AT&T’s Next instalment plan. The handset costs $249.99 tied to a two year contract with the carrier, while the off-contract price is $682.99, slightly higher than its price on the Google Play Store. Customers interested in getting it on instalment can grab the handset on carrier’s Next plan for $22.77 per month with AT&T Next 24, $28.46 per month with AT&T Next 18 or $34.15 per month with AT&T Next 12.
Nexus 6 features a 5.96-inch display with 2560 by 1440 resolution, a quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32/64GB of internal storage, 13MP camera with OIS, and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop as its operating system.Filed Under: Mobile Phone News, Top News
