Grabbing the chance to buy a Nexus 6 in the United States is a treacherous thing, and luck and timing to get the pre-order when stocks are in plays a big part. Google said this week it would alleviate the demand by restocking the device every Wednesday in the US. Google is really ramping up the Nexus 6 train now by confirming that the handset is now available in Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
The Nexus 6 lands with a whopping 5.9-inch panel that is sure to look properly massive in hand, but this is a Quad HD display so it will also be stunning. Batteries and QHD do not necessarily go well together as LG G3 users will attest, but Motorola is challenging that with a monstrous 3,220 mAh. Of course, we will only know the qualities of that juicer when we get the Nexus 6 in hand for a full review. The handset has also been given the latest and greatest in smartphone processing power thanks to a whopping 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 coupled with 3GB of RAM. These are all specs found on Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 and of course the Nexus 6 at this size is charting itself right into the territory of the phablet king, and of course the iPhone 6 Plus. While it may not match those devices in terms of sales, at first glance the Nexus 6 seems to be every bit as good. In terms of cameras there is a 13 megapixel snapper with a dual LED lens, which at least for now seems like a compromise the device is making. The handset will ship in either 32GB or 64GB variants and unfortunately an earlier report suggesting there would be expandable storage seems to have been wrong, as Google is not mentioning it.The device is not showing up for sale or pre-order on the Google Play storefront in those countries, but it is listed as "coming soon".
