Google’s Nexus devices are popular among Android users, since they are the first to get the latest updates. Furthermore, they offer top-of-the-line specs, but will not burn a hole through your pocket with their affordable price tags. Will this be the case with the Nexus 6 (Motorola Shamu) and Nexus 9 (HTC Volantis)? It seems, however, that this will no longer be the case, if leaked price tags from German retailers are to be believed.
The German retailers in question are Media Markt and Saturn. German-speaking Caschys Blog revealed the listings (see below).
The listing you see above shows that the Google Nexus 6 or Motorola Nexus 6 will set you back €569 (around £453). The listing also shows last year’s Nexus 5, which costs €399 (around £317). Note that the same retailers priced the Nexus 5 €50 (around £40) higher than its price in Google Play. So if the Nexus 6 costs at least €500 (around £400) in Google Play, it definitely is no longer affordable.
The listing seen above shows pricing for the Google Nexus 9 or HTC Nexus 9. The cheapest model sports 16GB of internal storage and Wi-Fi-only connectivity. It will set you back €399 (around £317). The 32GB model will cost €489 (around £390), while the 32GB model with 4G connectivity is the most expensive at €569 (around £453).
