While the rumours are going round about Android M and the Nexus 5 (2015) being released together, the Nexus 6 isn’t dead and buried just yet. If you live in the UK and have thought about upgrading to the Nexus 6, today might be the day you should take the plunge.
For reasons unknown, Google has slashed the prices of the Nexus 6 on the Play Store in the UK, the 32GB version has been discounted to a lowly £303.99, while the 64GB is a far more reasonable £378.99. Don’t forget that free shipping is included as well. Both the White and Midnight Blue variants are available, and all models are set to leave the warehouse in 1-2 business days. To put the today’s price slash into perspective, it was only a couple of weeks ago the 32GB Nexus 6 was discounted to £399, with the 64GB version dropping to £469 as part of Motorola’s UK summer sale.
It has to be asked if this is Google clearing its stocks of the Nexus 6 to make way for the rumoured new Nexus handset(s), and the answer is, who knows? There are no details available on how long the Nexus 6 will remain discounted, so if you were thinking of buying Google’s flagship handset, now’s the time. There’s (almost) nothing worse than seeing a great deal, dithering about whether you really need it, deciding you do and losing out on the discounted price. If you do, don’t forget to let us know which model you went for in the comments below.
