Nexus 6-B

The wait for Verizon’s Nexus 6 finally seems to be nearing its end. Leaked screenshots from the carrier’s internal database confirm the super-sized device will be making its debut this Thursday, March 12, and it’ll come with Google’s latest Android 5.1 software pre-installed.

The Nexus 6 has been available from other U.S. carriers for four months now, but for reasons unknown, Verizon customers have been made to wait for it. Fortunately for them, the device appears to be incredibly close now.

The screenshots obtained by Phandroid show that the Nexus 6 is scheduled to make its debut through Verizon’s online store on March 12, following by a retail launch on March 19.


Only the Midnight Blue option will be available initially, but the leak doesn’t state whether Verizon will offer the 32GB model, the 64GB model, or both. It does say, however, that prices will start at $249.99 with a two-year agreement from $29.16 per month on Verizon Edge.

Customers will also have the option to purchase the device outright for $699, but no matter how you buy it, it will come with a 6-month free trial of Google Play Music, and Android 5.1 Lollipop, which hasn’t yet been made available to other Nexus devices.
