Google working on phasing out the Nexus 6P
The Nexus 6P, a smartphone that was developed in collaboration between Google and Huawei and came on the market at the end of last year, is being phased out by Google. In the United States, the device is no longer available.
Google seems to be working on phasing out the Nexus 6P smartphone. The device is out of stock in the United States and is not going to come back in stock, Google in the United States has informed.
The timing is notable because it is expected that Google can launch two new Nexus smartphones anytime. The phasing out of the 6P seems to be linked to the arrival of these new devices. However, when the two new Nexus smartphones will appear is not yet known.
Only 10 months available
The 6P has not even been on the market that long. The device was launched simultaneously with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow last October. The device has been therefore just over 10 months on the market. Many other smartphones remain available up to 1.5–4 years after its launch.
Incidentally, the short timeframe in which Nexus smartphones are available is not strange. In the past, Google has almost always halted sales of its older devices ahead of the arrival of new devices.
