An anonymous source revealed to Phandroid that the stock-Android device was delayed, though it’s unclear exactly why. Once it does hit the market, the Verizon-branded Nexus 6 is expected to run Android 5.1 out of the box along with Enhanced 4G LTE and built-in VoLTE calling. It’s possible that’s the reason for today’s setback.
Several months after its initial launch the Nexus 6 is still a great phone, boasting a 6-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 805 processor, a 3220mAh battery, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 3GB of RAM and 32/64GB of storage. It also runs the latest version of Android Lollipop, though it’s likely Verizon will add at least a little bit of its own bloatware.
Unfortunately, Verizon customers will have to wait a little longer than we hoped before getting their hands on a subsidized Nexus 6. Of course, you can also order the device unlocked straight from Google right now, though that means paying the full $649 upfront.
