Nexus 6P – Held Back From Greater Heights
Nexus 6P was such a huge success that it ran out like hot cakes. Google decided that that was enough and stopped producing anymore Nexus 6P units.
However, the Nexus 6P was merely successful in the U.S. and not any other markets in the world. This is because Google had made it available only inside the country which, inevitably, held it back from reaching greater heights.
According to AnTuTu, the Nexus 6P was only making it big in the U.S. while Samsung devices like the Galaxy S7, S6 or the Note 5 were taking the world by storm.
Thankfully, its successors will not be sharing the same fate. Through its Project Fi carrier service, Google is looking to bring the Nexus brand to a global level.
This would be great news for our international friends who have been dying to know what the fuss is all about with the Nexus 6P after seeing numerous tech sites and forum raving about it.
Back in 2015, Google started The Project Fi carrier service and ever since that it has only been progressing. Today it includes the infrastructure of Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular.
The Project Fi has landed in over 120 countries, thanks to the help of T-Mobile with its solid global presence. On top of that, the search engine giant has also affirmed a joint venture with Europe’s biggest carrier, Three.
Having said that, these devices will be costing way more in other countries as conversion rates are involved. Take for example in the U.S., paying $10 per GB of data seems reasonable but it may be three or four times that amount in some other countries.
Google has already clarified that it is not looking for the Project Fi to garner huge global network but it just may change with the Nexus program that is quickly gaining attention.
Google is reportedly working to market its HTC Nexus to U.S. carriers and it looks like it is trying to increase the availability of the device in a bid to increase its income.
