If you’ve been waiting for the Google Nexus 6P to land in Canada, there’s potentially some bad news for you; the launch of Google’s latest flagship has reportedly been delayed until November 2nd, a week after it was first meant to launch.
According to an internal document from carrier Bell, which has been published by MobileSyrup, the Nexus 6P has been delayed until November 2nd due to supply issues. It’s unknown exactly what the issues are and while shipping to dealers and corporate stores will begin on October 23rd, none of these will be able to sell the actual handset to customers until November 2nd.
Over the past weekend, the Nexus 6P was removed from the Google Store in Canada and prior to this, delivery dates were being quoted as between Thursday, October 29th and Thursday, November 5th. It’s unknown whether these supply issues are affecting just Bell, all Canadian carriers or even other countries around the world but we’ll let you know if there’s any other countries experiencing delays.
Google’s Nexus 6P was developed in partnership with Huawei and is the company’s latest flagship handset, sporting a 5.7-inch QHD AMOLED display with 518ppi pixel density, an octa-core Snapdragon 810 CPU, 3GB RAM, 32/64/128GB storage and a 12MP rear camera with laser autofocus and super-large 1.55µm pixel size. There’s also USB Type-C, NFC, a 3450mAh non-removable battery with quick charging, front stereo speakers and a fingerprint sensor.
