The Google Nexus 6 phablet made in collaboration with Motorola is expanding its availability, now reaching more countries through the Google Play store.
Google unveiled its last-generation Nexus 6 back in mid-October last year, and the device has been available for a good while now in several markets (leaving aside temporary stock issues). Nevertheless, a number of regions were still waiting for the device, and Google promised to add more countries in time. The company has now made good on its word, expanding the availability of the much-touted Nexus 6 powerhouse to more countries across the world.
As a reminder, the Motorola-made Nexus 6 came as the very first phablet in Google's Nexus lineup of devices, and served as one of the launch vehicles for Android 5.0 Lollipop. The handset boast high-end specs and features all around, sporting notable improvements over its predecessor, and has stirred lots of interest since its debut.
For a quick recap, the Nexus 6 rocks a massive 5.96-inch display with an impressive QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and packs a 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor under the hood, paired with 3GB of RAM. Other specs include 32GB or 64GB of internal storage capacity, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front shooter, and a large 3,200 mAh battery to keep things up and running.
As previously mentioned, the Nexus 6 ships with Android 5.0 Lollipop on board out of the box, but is upgradeable to the latest Android 5.1 version Google recently released.
Google has now made its Motorola Nexus 6 available through Google Play in six more countries: Austria, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Norway, and Portugal. It's worth pointing out that interested customers can only buy a device from the Google Store if their shipping address is in the same country as their credit card billing address.
It remains to be seen whether the Nexus 6 will be more readily available now, with more countries added to the mix, as the device has faced some supply issues since its debut due to high demand.
