Finally! After several months of promising to make the Google Nexus 6 available in its stores, Verizon Wireless has finally confirmed that it will be stocking the device later this month.
As reported by Android Police, the Nexus 6 will hit Verizon Wireless stores beginning February 26th. Although details on pricing have not been released yet, many expect the smartphone to be subsidized on the recently updated More Everything plans, and also on the Verizon Edge early upgrade option.
Similar to all of Verizon's LTE devices, the Nexus 6 will be offered unlocked, and will essentially sport the same hardware specifications as the one that is available on the Google Play Store.
However, because this is the Big Red we are talking about, its Nexus 6 will probably feature the in-your-face Verizon Wireless branding that the carrier is known for. Also, it would not be much of a surprise if the device already comes pre-installed with Verizon-specific mobile apps and other potentially unwanted software.
On the positive side, Verizon subscribers will finally get to experience for themselves the features of the Nexus 6, and of course, Android 5.0 Lollipop. Features-wise, the device is quite impressive. Its whopping 6-inch display screen is nicely complemented with a 13-megapixel camera on the rear, replete with optical image stabilization (OIS), and a 2-megapixel camera on the front. Plus, it has a 2.7 GigaHertz processor that is supported with 3 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM). On top of all that, the Nexus 6 comes with a 3,220 mAh battery with Turbo Charging abilities.
Apart from finally making the Nexus 6 available in its stores, Verizon Wireless will also be debuting the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime on March 5th, as well as a sapphire blue edition of the Motorola DROID Turbo on March 12th.
For an inexpensive smartphone, the Galaxy Core Prime has specifications that are not bad. It features a 4.5-inch display screen with 800 by 480 resolution, and is equipped with a 5-megapixel camera on the rear. Hardware-wise, it comes with a Snapdragon 401 processor, with 1 gigabyte of random access memory and 8 gigabytes of internal storage.
As for the sapphire blue edition of the Motorola DROID Turbo, it will serve as a welcome additional option for Verizon Wireless customers, especially those who are looking for an alternative to the red and black color scheme that the Big Red is offering for the device.
