Nexus 6 UK release date confirmed for December 1

The Nexus 6 UK release date is finally official, and you won’t have to wait too much longer to get your hands on the 6-inch Android 5.0 device.

Having been formally unveiled last month, the Nexus 6 has now been confirmed to be heading to British retailers from December 1.

Despite leaving less than two weeks until the handset will hit store shelves, high street seller Carphone Warehouse has already started accepting Nexus 6 pre-orders.

Pairing a 6-inch QHD display with a 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM, the Nexus 6 specs sheet is further enhanced by a 13-megapixel, OIS-enhanced, rear-mounted camera. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 rival is to be available in both blue and white colour schemes.

Sadly, unlike past Nexus handsets, the Nexus 6 isn’t going to be too light on your wallet. The 32GB iteration has been priced at £499 on a SIM-free deal.

Although cheaper than the similarly specced iPhone 6, this near-£500 asking price makes the handset £100 more expensive than the LG G3. Those looking to snap up the Nexus 6 on contract will need to sign up to a two year, £34.50 per month deal.

For those after more storage space – the Nexus 6 does not support microSD expansion – a 64GB edition is available for the princely sum of £549.

The Nexus 6 is the first device to come sporting Android 5.0 Lollipop direct from the box. Introducing Google’s new Material design UI, the software adds an improved Notifications system, 64-bit processor support and smarter lock screens.
