Google is releasing a gold Nexus 6P

New, 13 comments

If you were having difficulty picking between the light and dark Nexus 6P options, here comes a gold variant to add some color and make matters that little bit more complicated. The gold Nexus 6P was actually pictured among the pre-release leaks of Google's flagship Android smartphone last year, but it wasn't among the color options offered for the initial rollout. Google is now adding it to the Google Store roster, with the 32GB model costing $499 and the 64GB gold 6P coming in at $549. Sorry, no 128GB option yet.

Like the already available aluminum, graphite, and frost variants, the gold Nexus 6P runs Google's Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS on a 5.7-inch high-resolution AMOLED display. It's powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor and comes with 3GB of RAM, a 12-megapixel camera, and the excellent Nexus Imprint fingerprint sensor. Measuring 7.3mm in thickness and weighing 178g, it also has a 3,450mAh battery and uses the new USB-C connector in place of the traditional MicroUSB. All the good stuff of Google's flagship, now available in gold.
