Nexus 6P shipment woes continue, US buyers being offered $25 refunds

According to Google, $25 is enough compensation for your Nexus 6 being more than two weeks late in reaching your doorstep. Those affected by the delay in the US are being provided with a refund of that much amount right now, according to a new report.

Google has started shipping the Nexus 6P in some parts of the United States already. However, it is apparently seeing a very high demand for a particular color and memory size model that’s being ordered by most customers. It has stopped short of mentioning this variant though.

Through an email which is present with 9to5Google, the company has promised that these delayed handsets of the Huawei-made Nexus device will begin shipping between November 7 and November 14. It’s these units which will be accompanied by $25 refunds that will be processed soon after they ship.

Nexus 6P

The new Nexus 6P from Google was unveiled alongside the Nexus 5X late last month. It features a 5.7-inch AMOLED screen, and bears a fingerprint reader on its rear surface. A 3450mAh battery powers it from within, whereas an advanced 12.3MP rear camera is another one of its highlights. This device is run by an octa core Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GB worth of RAM.

A look at the key specs of the Google Nexus 6P:

The Nexus 6P is facing delays in shipments not only in the US, but also in Canada and India. This is mostly due to unavailability of stock with Huawei. The phone costs $500 (32GB), $550 (64GB) and $650 (128GB), if you’re out of the loop.
