As expected, the Google Nexus 6 went up for pre-orders on the Google Play Store, but it didn’t last very long, and ended up showing “out of inventory” to many potential customers.
Reports suggest that many customers were able to pre-order the 32GB version of the handset, which costs $649, while many potential buyers were treated with no inventory message.
It could be staggered roll out, but the device went out of stock so quickly that speculation began suggesting that it was not supposed to go online, but it actually did for short span of time. The product page showed a three to four weeks delivery time, hinting early units will ship by November end. It’s also the time when the biggest Nexus device to date will go on sale in several regions across the globe.
Nexus devices are usually popular for the stock Android experience, and high-end specifications at an affordable price tag. However, that’s not the case with the Nexus 6, it comes with top-of-the-line specifications and a hefty price tag. The 32GB version comes with a $649 price tag, while the 64GB costs $699. If that’s too much for you, the handset is also expected to hit carriers in the coming months so you’ll be able to pick up a unit at subsidized prices as well.
As a recap, there’s a 5.96-inch display with a 2560 by 1440 resolution, 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 32/64GB of storage, 13Mp camera, a 3,220 mAh battery and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop as its operating system out of the box.
