Huawei and Google unveil premium Nexus 6P smartphone
Huawei and Google introduced the Nexus 6P, a premium smartphone featuring Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Google’s newest operating system for mobile devices.

“Huawei is very excited to collaborate with Google and deliver a premium Nexus experience for the global market,” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group. “We value the way consumers embrace mobile technology in all parts of their lives and have created a smartphone with great design, performance and seamless integration of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the latest Android release.”

“We're excited to partner with Huawei to introduce customers to Nexus 6P, our most premium phone yet and Android 6.0, Marshmallow, our most polished and highest-performing OS ever," said Hiroshi Lockheimer, VP Android, Chromecast and Chrome OS at Google.

The Nexus 6P is designed with an all-metal unibody, crafted from aeronautical-grade anodised aluminium with diamond chamfers encircling its edges.

The new smartpone features a 5.7” WQHD 518ppi AMOLED display and front-facing stereo speakers for crisp, clear sound. With the latest version of the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor under the hood, Nexus 6P delivers enhanced performance with a 3450mAh battery.

Also notable is the reversible USB Type-C port. The included Type-C fast charger gives up to seven hours of battery life from a 10-minute charge.

The Nexus 6P camera has a larger 1.55um pixels sensor, capable of recording 4K and high-frame-rate slow-motion videos. It also features an 8MP front facing camera with Google’s HDR+ technology.

Nexus Imprint is a new feature placed on the back of your device to complement the way you naturally hold it. One touch will turn on the phone and unlock apps for smooth, easy access. For users in the US, Nexus Imprint will also work with Android Pay for quick and easy purchases at thousands of locations nationwide.

The Nexus 6P will be available in more than 30 countries and available for pre-order in the U.S., Canada, the UK, Ireland and Japan through the Google Store beginning on Sept 29.

It will be available in New Zealand from November 2 through the Google Play Store, and at selected retailers including 2degrees, Harvey Norman, and Noel Leeming.

Equipped with 32/64/128GB of storage, the phone comes in Aluminum (Silver), Graphite (Black), and Frost (White) and is priced as follows:

New Zealand RRP
  • NZ$1099.00 – 32GB
  • NZ$1199.00 – 64GB
  • NZ$1349.00 – 128GB
