Yesterday, when Google announced that pre-orders for the Nexus 6P would be opening immediately, it only mentioned its own online Google Store as the place to buy the latest flagship pure Android smartphone. That left us to assume that rumors of it only being available direct through Google were true. Except, they weren’t. As well as being able to order it on an installment plan from Project Fi, Huawei will also be selling the Nexus 6P direct from its own GetHuawei.com store.

There are some limitations to ordering it from Huawei. Currently, the manufacturer only lists two colors and two storage options of each as available to pre-order. GetHuawei only has the 32GB and 64GB models of the Aluminum and Graphite devices. There’s no ‘frost’ or 128GB option. Prices are the same as Google: $499 and $549 for the 32GB and 64GB models respectively, with an estimated shipping date of ‘late October’, similar to Google’s own ‘4-5 weeks’.
