Google has finally announced the UK price tag for the eagerly-anticipated Nexus 6 smartphone.

The 32GB version of the giant Motorola-manufactured handset will cost £499, while the 64GB iteration will be £549.

The devices, available in Midnight Blue and Cloud White, are listed as ‘coming soon’ on the Google Play Store, with an official UK release date yet to be revealed. Pre-orders are also yet to open.

As a sweetener for snapping up the SIM-free handset, Google is offering six months of free access to the £9.99 a month Google Play Music streaming service, if the Nexus 6 is purchased by the end of 2014.

The Nexus 6 is the latest own-branded handset from Google and will pioneer the new Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system.

It comes packing a massive 6-inch Quad HD, 493ppi screen and a 13-megapixel camera with image stabilisation and HDR technology. It’s also capable of shooting 4K video of 30 frames per second.

The 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 quad core handset also promises all-day battery life and fast charging via Motorola’s Turbo Charger, which brings an additional 6 hours of battery life after only 15 minutes plugged into the mains.

Now all that’s left is to discover when the device will actually be available. Recent reports have suggested the release date may come on December 1, but we’ll keep you posted.

Hmm, 'good news' would have been £329 and £399, oh and there's an SD slot after all. But hey-ho!

So about £150 lest than the iphone 6+. I guess it's a good deal, but was hoping against hope that the 32gig version would be around £400.

Good news would have been a Nexus that was once again affordable, you know, like the 4 & 5 were :)

Exactly Why is it good news? At that price they're playing in the field with the Note 4 (I just checked a few sites are offering them sim free for around £540) which I assume would be a better camera. Micro SD Card, and replaceable battery (not sure the nexus 6 has a replaceable battery or not), Agree with ElectricSheep those prices would have been more reasonable. Good luck Google in selling it guessing it will be a flop. I think the game changer will be the true 64 bit chips like the snap dragon 810.

At this price it's a flop unless this is inflated RRP and prices tumble like anything!
