The Nexus 6 may be official, but we’re still waiting to hear how each carrier will handle the new stock Android phablet. Today we’re getting a bit more information on T-Mobile’s plan thanks to product manager Des Smith.
First, Smith responded to one customer asking about the 64GB Nexus 6, which he confirmed would be available online.
@AngryEnglishDan 64 gb yes, online only, 32 gb in stores

Soon afterward he revealed the official T-Mobile release date for the 64GB handset.

So there you go. The Nexus 6 with 64GB of storage will be available on Nov. 12. There’s still no word on T-Mobile’s pricing, though we’re guessing it will be the same as Google’s unsubsidized costs. The Nexus 6 is set to start at $649 for 32GB of storage and jumps to $699 for 64GB, though it’s possible T-Mobile could offer the device for $0 down followed by two years of regular monthly payments.
The Nexus 6 looks like a pretty awesome phone, and we can’t wait to try it out for ourselves. Google and Motorola packed almost everything you could want into the device including a massive 6-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera, a 3220mAh battery and pure Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
We’ll have plenty more coverage of the Nexus 6 later this month and into November as it starts to ship, though hopefully we’ll see more carriers lay out plans for the device in the near future. Stay tuned!
