It’s been a long time coming for the Nexus 6 on Verizon. Earlier this week, it was discovered that the carrier had updated one of the pages on their website with a banner saying that the device would be “coming soon,” and now we have a bit of confirmation that “soon” might mean “before the end of February.” A new image that has surfaced this morning (via Android Police) shows purported release dates for both the Nexus 6 and the Galaxy Core Prime.

As you can see above, the leaked image shows February 26th as the launch date for the long-awaited Nexus 6. For this device, a launch in the later part of this month puts Verizon about a quarter behind the competition.

The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, which launched in November of 2014, is also listed as a device getting ready for launch on the carrier—slated for March 5th. Finally, you’ll see that the “Sapphire Blue” version of the Droid Turbo is being aimed for March 12th.

As many have come to expect with Verizon, another recent leak (via Phandroid) suggests that the device will indeed sport the carrier’s branding on the back cover. It’s not exactly surprising to find this out, but the back of the device does look a bit crowded sporting the Nexus logo, the Motorola logo inside the dimple, and now a Verizon carrier logo as well:


In other Verizon news, the company recently dropped the prices of many of its data plans by $10. Verizon’s MORE Everything plans that have data allowances between 1 GB and 3 GB will include 1GB of additional data for the same price, and more data tiers with 12GB, 14GB, and 16GB options are becoming available as well.
