Google Plans To Increase Nexus 6 Stock Every Wednesday To Keep Up With Preorder Numbers
The Nexus 6 – Google's hot new smartphone – is officially up for preorder in Google Play, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you'll be able to secure your own. The store is constantly reporting a lack of inventory, asking customers to try again later. To make this process easier, though, Google has announced that it's committing to updating the store with more inventory every Wednesday.
With this plan, customers who are looking to get their hands on an early Nexus 6 model won't have to compulsively check Google Play every few hours to see if they can get an order in. Instead, they can just check every Wednesday until they're able to finalize their preorder.
Today was set to be the first Wednesday that Google updated the inventory, but the store still looks like it's out of everything. The Nexus 6 is available in four different models. Two versions with different storage sizes (32 GB and 64 GB) are available in either Cloud White or Midnight Blue color options. All four are listed as out of stock as of this writing.
Like its name suggests, the Nexus 6 comes with a 6-inch display. It also comes packed with Android 5.0 Lollipop, Google's latest mobile operating system. Manufactured by Motorola, the Nexus 6 is able to utilize the company's Turbo Charger technology, allowing it charge from a low battery to six hours of life after just 15 minutes of being plugged in. As an added incentive to buy, everyone who purchases a Nexus 6 before the end of 2014 will get a 6-month subscription to Google Play Music.
