Sprint announced on Tuesday that it will begin selling the Nexus 6 on November 14th through both its retail and online stores across the United States. The carrier confirmed that the Nexus 6 qualifies for Sprint Easy Pay pricing, meaning that qualified buyers can purchase the smartphone for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $29.
Sprint lists the full retail price of the Nexus 6 at $696 for those that opt against signing a new two-year contract, although it did not list which storage capacity that pricing is for. We presume both the on-contract and full retail pricing applies to the entry-model 32GB model, although we’ll have to wait for official confirmation from the carrier before we can know for sure.
Nexus 6 customers can take advantage of Sprint’s unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE data plan for $60 per month, while families can opt for the Sprint Family Share Pack for a shared data plan that includes up to 10 lines with 20GB of shared data and unlimited talk and text for only $100 a month through 2015.
“Nexus 6 sets the stage for exciting new developments in smartphones with a stunning 6-inch Quad HD display, perfect for movies, videos and surfing the Web,” said Doug Kaufman, director-Device Strategy, Sprint. “With pricing plans like the Sprint Family Share Pack, families can take advantage of all the features of Nexus 6 without worrying about expensive rate plans or running out of data each month.”
Motorola’s Nexus 6 packs a 5.96-inch QHD AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 (493 PPI), a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7 GHz, 3GB of RAM, and a 3,220 mAh battery. The smartphone will also come with Android Lollipop preinstalled out of the box.
