Huawei Nexus 6P to launch on Optus next month

Nexus 6P - Optus
On the day of the Nexus 6P launch, we contacted all the Australian carriers about whether they would carry the Nexus 5X or the Nexus 6P, only Optus responded to our inquiries, advising they would be carrying the Nexus 6P, but had no further information on when the phone would arrive or how much the phone would be. We’ve just received a tip from a credible source which gives us the date on which you’ll be able to head into your local Optus store and pick up the large screened Nexus – that date? November 25th.

There’s unfortunately no pricing or plan information available at this stage, but we will receive more information on that as the launch date approaches. As to whether we’ll see the Nexus 6P or even the 5X on either Telstra or Vodafone, we’re pretty sure negotiations are still ongoing – so stay tuned.

 
Thanks: Anon.

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.

Nexus 6P Optus Pre-Order on 26 October.

Optus availability 2 November.

That’s according to the Optus internal intranet website (not accessible by the public).

This came from an Optus employee who forwarded the screen capture to an ex-optus employee.

Ex-Optus employee then posted the flyer on Reddit /r/nexus

under the title

“Nexus 6P in Australia will be available November 2nd through Optus”

its either going to come on a Sunday night eary hours or Wed Night. That has been the trend. Im using Store Stock Checker. Untick all the other stuff bar the phone you want. It will alert you the secong they hit the play store. I have done this every year. And every year had a nexus delivered within a week after they go live. Good luck. Let me know how you go.

When can we buy it direct from Google?

This is taking WAY too long to get here. Specially when the 810 is almost 5 months old.

Years ago I purchased a Galaxy Nexus for my wife on a plan with Telstra. Telstra DELAYED updates (delayed by months) from Google for the Nexus device going against the whole reason you buy one – to get timely updates. After many discussions online with other angry Telstra Galaxy Nexus owners we found out that Telstra had messed with the Samsung Roms. This meant that when Google did a release, it then went to Samsung and then went to Telstra for Testing. My wife’s updates were delayed by up to 6 MONTHS or more. There were huge complaints online about… Read more »

Might be interested. I swore I’d never buy on a plan again but I can’t shell out $1000…

I thought both phones would only be for sale via the Play Store in Australia. Has Google changed its mind?

That’s a lot faster than I was suspecting. Cool . now to wait for pricing, shouldn’t be too severe
