Don’t fancy the new Nexus 6P or the Nexus 5X, but still want a pure Android device? Then you’d want to be quick to grab yourself the 6P’s predecessor, the Nexus 6 by Motorola. Turns out, the 2014 Nexus flagship smartphone has been removed from Google’s Play Store, suggesting that the device has been discontinued.
The Nexus 6 marked a pretty significant change for the Nexus lineup of smartphones. For one, it has a huge 6-inch 2560 x 1440 AMOLED display, whereas its predecessor, the Nexus 5, only has a 4.95-inch display. Other than that, the Nexus 6 was also the first Nexus device to retail at a premium price point.
Perhaps this is the very reason why Google introduced two Nexus devices this year: the Nexus 6P and 5X. The former is positioned as a premium device (with a price to match), while the latter is the successor to the Nexus 5X, which still retains the same affordable price tag.
In terms of specification, the Nexus 6 is no slouch. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor paired with 3GB of RAM, up to 64GB of non-expandable storage, 13MP rear and 2MP front-facing cameras, as well as a 3,220mAh battery. Of course, the main appeal of the Nexus 6 is the fact that it will be one of the very first devices to be updated to the latest version of Android; a selling point for many consumers.
At the time of writing, several retailers are still offering official sets of the Nexus 6. Chances are, once stocks are depleted, the Nexus 6 won’t be available for purchase anymore. If you’re still on the fence, now is the time to decide.
