Google Nexus 6 – UK Pricing confirmed
32 GB Midnight Blue £499. Orders due to commence November 18th.
Update: We now have the Nexus 6 available to order
We can now confirm that Clove Technology will be stocking the 32 GB Midnight Blue version of the Nexus 6 at £499 inc. VAT. Other colour/memory configurations are TBC at this time, with availability likely limited to the UK Play Store due to stock levels.
Right now you can register your interest for the Nexus 6 – we will be emailing everyone on the list when orders are opened. According to Google / Motorola we can expect to begin taking orders on the 18th November in conjunction with the UK Play Store. An exact shipping date is to be announced, although we expect early December.
Google’s Nexus range has always been massively popular, not just with developers after the newest version of Android on the best possible hardware, but also with bargain hunters looking for a low-price, high-spec handset.
Rumours have been circulating for several weeks that the UK price of the Motorola manufactured Nexus 6 would be a fair bit higher than anticipated compared to the Nexus line’s history. This has been based mostly on the US pre-order price of $649 that appeared briefly on the American Play Store.
Considering the specification of the Nexus 6, we think everyone will agree that this is still a very good price all considered. It may be higher than many were hoping for, however when you factor in a 6 inch QHD screen, the most up to date hardware configuration available and Motorola’s now proven build quality, this is still a bargain.
