It's been just over three months since Google unveiled its new Nexus handsets, the LG-built 5X, and the 6P from Huawei. A gold version of the range-topping Nexus 6P was first revealed in leaks before the device was officially announced, and eventually materialized as a 'Special Edition' in Japan, and later in India.
Now, though, the gold model is becoming more widely available as a mainstream addition to the Nexus 6P range. As The Verge reports, alongside the other 'Frost White', 'Aluminum' and 'Graphite' options, the gold version is now making its way to the Google Store.
The Nexus 6P's key specs include:
- 5.7-inch AMOLED screen with Quad HD (2560x1440px) resolution
- 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB / 64GB / 128GB storage options
- 12.3MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, infrared-assisted autofocus and 4K video recording
- 8MP front-facing camera
- microUSB Type-C connector
- Fingerprint sensor
- Dual-front speakers
- 3450mAh battery
- 159.4 x 77.8 x 7.3mm; 178g
However, while the other colors include a 128GB storage option, that's not yet available for the gold variant. Pricing for the gold model is identical to the others in the range: $499 with 32GB of storage, or $549 with 64GB.
