Google has slashed the price of its Motorola–made Nexus 6 smartphone, dropping the cost of the 32GB model to £399, a fall of £80.
The more capacious 64GB edition comes in at £479. The latter represents a huge saving on the original £549 price tag.
Bargain hunters will be disappointed to hear, however, that at one point the phones were available for £304 and £379 respectively on the Google Store.
These savings appear to reflect the fact that many newer, better phones have hit the market since the Nexus 6 first launched at the end of last year. However, you’re unlikely to find a phone with such high–end specs with such a low SIM–free price.
The Nexus 6 did not continue Google’s previous policy of offering devices at low cost on launch. That’s largely due to its impressive spec sheet, but it has apparently hampered sales.
A new Nexus phone is expected to launch towards the end of the year, alongside Google’s new Android M software.
