A week after putting the LG built Nexus 5X up on their site for pre-order, keen eyed ex-Ausdroider, Irwin, has noticed that Australian online retailer Kogan has added the Huawei built Nexus 6P to their site with prices starting at just $729 + delivery. But just like the 5X, the phone is listed as ‘Sold Out’ in all configurations.
When they finally open the pre-order gates, the phone will be available in three colours: White Frost, Graphite Black and Aluminium, so it seems the gold coloured option remains a Japan exclusive. The phone will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage options when it’s actually live. To that end, Kogan is offering a notification service on the site, simply enter your details to get notified when the phones are listed as ‘in stock’.
Pricing wise, Kogan is offering a pretty good deal when compared to what we saw listed as the official pricing in the source of the Google Store. The price for Kogan’s phones doesn’t include delivery like the Google Store pricing does, but at a fairly significant discount it’s pretty much worth paying the delivery fee for the Kogan offer.
Nexus 6P Google Store vs Kogan
There is one major discrepancy with the Kogan listing, with a 32GB Frost edition appearing that wasn’t listed on the AU Google Store and also hasn’t been seen available even in the US on the Google Store.
The Kogan Nexus 5X and 6P are most likely going to be imported stock, though they do tend to include an AU power adapter. What LTE bands will be included on the phone hasn’t been specified, so probably a good idea to wait and check that out before ordering – their online chat didn’t have any ideas.
With no official date announced for when the Nexus phones will go on-sale in Australia on the Google Store (though we hear October 19th is a good date to keep clear), people are starting to look around at other options. If you want to check out Kogan’s deal, head over to their website and sign up to be notified when the phones are ready to order.
