Original post (12/14): When the Nexus 6P launched back in September, Google announced that a special Gold variant of the Huawei-made device would be available, but only to residents of Japan. After only recently going on sale in Japan through the Google Store and SoftBank Mobile, it looks like the “exclusive” color option might soon start making its way to other regions. According to a new report from 9to5Google, Google plans to begin selling the Nexus 6P in the Gold color option in the United States. While there are no solid details as to when we can expect the company to announce this new color option for the U.S., the report suggests that Google could introduce its plans as part of Huawei’s announcements at CES 2016. Huawei has two press events scheduled for CES, one of which is where the company will announce that it’s finally bringing its Honor brand of smartphones to the United States.
Additionally, Google may soon start selling the Nexus 6P at Best Buy in the States. Google already has booths set up inside Best Buy stores around the U.S., where the company sells the Nexus 9, Chromecast, a selection of Chromebooks and a few other products. According to the report, the Nexus 6P will join these Google products at Best Buy brick-and-mortar stores and online sometime soon. While this isn’t confirmed yet, 9to5Google does not rule out the possibility of the new Gold variant coming to the U.S. as a Best Buy-exclusive.
