Google’s Nexus 6 is still a new device to the market. Although, we have the latest devices landing in the form of the HTC One M9 and the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Nexus 6 is still less than 6 months old. Although with these new devices landing, the Nexus 6 does not seem ‘as new’ anymore. However, in spite of whether you think of the Nexus 6 as new or not, it is still very much a brand new device in Verizon’s eyes. That is because they still have not got their hands on their own carrier branded edition. The Verizon Nexus 6 has been on the cards and apparently en-route for months now. Well, pretty much since the device launched.
To be fair, it does seem to be getting closer to a launch. Back at the start of February was when the details really started to suggest the carrier was about to launch the device. In fact, by February 6th, there was even a firm date being touted. This was February 26th and considered to be the actual launch date. However, as February 26th approached (and went) there was no sign of the Verizon Nexus 6. That said, on the 26th there was a video which suddenly appeared which did confirm that February 26th was indeed supposed to be the actual launch date. However, the launch did not happen.
Well, the latest on this front is that it sees the launch is indeed getting closer. Phone Arena (source link below) have received an image (shown below) from someone who apparently works at a third-party Verizon store. The image shows what seems to be a labeled package which presumably contains launch material (POS) for the Nexus 6. The label does clearly state “VZW Merchandising Material” and does clearly state “Nexus 6 Launch”. Of course, what the material does not state is an actual date and as such there is still no firm indication of when the Verizon Nexus 6 will appear. Although, at least if stores are beginning to receive merchandising materials, then the assumption would be that they are gearing up for an actual launch. Are you still waiting on Verizon to get the Nexus 6? Literally do not care anymore? Let us know your thoughts.
