Google slices $100 off Nexus 6P and 5X prices

Alex Kidman 14 March 2016


Google is offering a $100 discount on its Nexus handsets as part of a birthday promotion.

While the recent handset spotlight has been on Samsung’s just-released Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Google’s still keen to sell its own (effective) white-label Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X handsets.

As part of the anniversary of the Google Play hardware store, it is temporarily slashing $100 off the asking price of each Nexus handset when purchased through the Google Play store, with all sizes and colour combinations, save for the Gold iteration, which never launched in Australia, available. The special pricing will last until 27 March 2016.

This isn’t the first time Google’s sliced Nexus 6P/5X pricing, as it did so earlier in the year as part of a "back to school" promotion.

So what does that do to the pricing? Here’s how the adjusted pricing pans out after the discount is applied.

Nexus 5X$479$559N/A
Nexus 6P$799$899$999

As Ausdroid notes, the price discount isn’t listed as part of the regular price, but only gets applied once you add a handset to your online shopping basket. Google doesn’t charge additional fees for regular delivery, although you can pay extra for faster shipping.

The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are both excellent handsets with the distinct cachet of having access to the latest versions of Google’s Android operating system.

The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are also available on contract if you’re not in the position to make an outright purchase of a handset. Here is what you’ll pay from each carrier that stocks the Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P:
