64GB Nexus 6 from Kogan delayed until March

Kogan Nexus 6
Apart from a brief appearance on Google Play, the 64GB version of the Nexus 6 has been a rarity in these parts. Retailers aren’t expecting stock until at least February, but online retailer is now advising customers that it will be March before stock is received.

Ausdroid reader Astinus received an email update from Kogan advising that a ‘temporary global supply shortage’ is the cause behind the delay which will see customers wait until the 16th of March before receiving their order. As you can see below, the same options that Kogan gave previously when delays were being advised are in place. Customers can either change their order, get a credit note, or receive a refund.

If you’re still waiting for your 64GB Nexus 6, it looks like you’ll still be waiting for a fair while. That said, it seems the 32GB version is beginning to hit JB Hifi and Good Guys stores in decent numbers. Alternatively the 2015 Flagship launch season is almost upon us, so perhaps wait and see what HTC, Sony and Samsung have to offer at MWC.

 
Thanks: Astinus.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I managed to purchase a 64GB Midnight Blue Nexus 6 on the Australian Play Store this morning. I seemed to have picked the last one. It became out of stock after I completed the purchase.

You haven’t been able to buy the Nexus 5 or 6 on the Australian Play Store for weeks now. You can’t buy a Nexus phone there at all. Reasons the Nexus phones haven’t been a commercial success?!?!

No stock, too big, too expensive and an older processor. The new flagships will have the Snapdragon 810 and might even be available sooner!

Too big? If you have tried the phone fair enough, but if not a lot of people think that about big phones til they use them for a while. Old processor? the nexus 6 is super quick for me, I’m not sure why I would need a faster processor?

I tried the 5.5″ OnePlus One and found it too big. No-one needs a faster processor, but why buy a Nexus 6 in a couple of months (when it might be available) when the likes of Samsung, HTC and Sony will have released their flagships with a faster processor (and maybe more RAM)? It’s not as though the Nexus 6 is cheaper than other flagships.

Well, seems like the Snapdragon 810 ain’t happening any time soon…overheating issues it seems

The only company that is claiming over heating of the 810 is Samsung, which funny enough, they have their own CPU they can use instead!?
