Google and Motorola’s Nexus 6 phablet which was launched last year at $649 has now been found being sold in the US at just $299.99. This drop in its price is not official though, as its new retail value has appeared only on eBay, where a seller has put limited quantities up for sale.
That cost applies to the 32GB unlocked model of the Nexus 6. The drop in its price is of course the result of the launch of the two newest handsets from Google’s Android flagship range namely, the Huawei Nexus 6P and the LG Nexus 5X.
Both these devices improve upon the 6 model a great deal, but it’s still quite a beast for those who want a powerful phone running stock Android. It offers a large 6-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, and runs on a 2.7GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.
Moreover, this CPU is assisted in its operations by 3GB worth of RAM. It grabs a 13MP OIS camera offering 4K video support, and a 2MP front facing snapper for selfies. Being a Nexus phone, you can rest assured that it always runs the latest Android software, until of course its upgrade cycle ends in the coming years.
A look at the specs of the Motorola-made Nexus 6:
– Display: 6-inch AMOLED, 2560 x 1440 pixels Quad HD
– OS: Android 5.1.1 Lollipop (upgradable to Marshmallow)
– CPU: 2.7GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805

Like we said, the newly priced Nexus 6 can be bought off eBay right now at a sweet $299.99. We’re sure the retail values of the phone will soon be seen dropping on other selling portals as well; so don’t worry if you don’t manage to procure the device right now.
