In case you missed it, Google officially unveiled its two newest Nexus devices, the Nexus 5X built by LG and the Nexus 6P built by Huawei, along with two Chromecasts (Chromecast 2.0 and Chromecast Audio) and a new Android tablet (Pixel C), during its event held in the city of San Francisco in California last Tuesday just this week. As expected, both Nexus phones will not be made available from any of the big four major wireless carriers in the United States (Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint), although mobile users can choose to take any one of the new handsets to a bring your own device (BYOD) plan. But here is some good news, especially for those who prefer not paying the full price upfront for either the Nexus 5X or the Nexus 6P: Google’s own Project Fi wireless service is offering the devices on 24 month installment plans.
It should be noted that Google has made it clear that the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P will both be automatically compatible with Project Fi’s network, which means that as soon as mobile users get their devices from the Google store (they can already preorder now), they can instantly use it on Project Fi straight out of the box. However, those mobile users who have a Project Fi invite or are now currently under a Project Fi plan, they can finance any of the two new Nexus devices on the two year payment plan via Project Fi’s website.
But how much will one pay exactly for any of the latest Nexus smartphones under Project Fi? The Nexus 5X has an outright price of $379 for the 16 gigabyte edition and $429 for the 32 gigabyte edition. As for the Nexus 6P, it starts at $499 for the 32 gigabyte edition, $549 for the 64 gigabyte edition, and $649 for the 128 gigabyte edition. Under a Project Fi payment plan, either devices can be paid off in a span of 24 months, without any down payment, interest, or financing charges. To summarize:
16 gigabyte edition -- $15.79 a month under the 24 month installment plan; $379 full retail price
32 gigabyte edition -- $17.85 a month under the 24 month installment plan; $429 full retail price
32 gigabyte edition -- $20.79 a month under the 24 month installment plan; $499 full retail price
64 gigabyte edition -- $22.85 a month under the 24 month installment plan; $549 full retail price
128 gigabyte edition -- $27.05 a month under the 24 month installment plan; $649 full retail price
If you are an accident prone type of mobile user, you may want to check Google’s Nexus Protect insurance plans priced at $69 for the Nexus 5X and $89 for the Nexus 6P. You would get a couple of years of protection against mechanical defects and accidental damage.
