A recent report stated that Google’s Nexus 6 handset would make its way to Verizon sometime in February, but as of now, we still have no idea when the phablet will launch on Big Red. As the rumored mid-February release date approaches, we’re seeing signs of the smartphone pop up on Verizon’s site. As of today, the Nexus 6 is listed on Verizon’s website as “coming soon.” If you’re interested in receiving updates as to when the device will be officially available, follow the Verizon link below to sign up for updates.
The Nexus 6 was launched back in October of 2014 and has since made its way to carriers such as AT&T, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Sprint, and even to Mexico, Canada and various other countries around the world. Given the carrier’s track record with previous Nexus handsets, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Verizon would be one of the last major carriers to make the handset available.
With that said, if you can get your hands on the unlocked Nexus 6, it can be activated on Verizon’s network. However, if you’re not able to front the $649.99 price tag to Google or Motorola, the time to buy the Verizon Nexus 6 on-contract may be almost here.
Since its launch, the Nexus 6 has been extremely difficult to get a hold of. Months after multiple carriers and retailers couldn’t keep the device in stock, Google admitted to not being able to keep up with Nexus 6 supply demands.
