Ever since they were first introduced at Google I/O earlier this year, many technology and smartphone enthusiasts have been hoping that both the Google Nexus 5X and 6P smartphones will be offered in Malaysia. Thanks to Huawei Malaysia, at least one of these smartphones has arrived here in the country.
The Nexus 6P is the first Nexus device that features a full metal unibody chassis, equipped with a 5.7 inch WQHD AMOLED display, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GBs of RAM, running the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. As far as storage goes, the Nexus 6P that is being sold here will be the 64GB variant.
“In Huawei’s commitment to deliver the ultimate Android experience through the perfect combination of hardware and software, Nexus 6P uses the world’s latest Android OS, Android Marshmallow, which users can be ensured of being the first to receive software updates and the fastest Android version” said Danny Chin, Southern Pacific Marketing Director of Consumer Business Group, Huawei Technologies Malaysia.
The Nexus 6P is also equipped with a fingerprint sensor at the back of the phone, which provides faster access and better security with just one touch that will turn on your screen and unlock apps smoothly.
Not only that, the phone also sports a rear-facing 12.3MP camera, which has larger 1.55um pixels that captures more light, even in the dimmest conditions, allowing users to capture incredible-looking shots with stunning detail, regardless if you’re outdoors where light is aplenty, or indoors where it’s dark.
The Nexus 6P is also the first phone in the market sporting a reversible USB Type-C connector that supports fast charging, and coupled with its 3,450mAh battery, Huawei claims that you can get seven hours of use with just 10 minutes of charging.
As far as availability goes, the Nexus 6P is available for purchase on both Huawel’s own VMall online store and Lazada Malaysia for a retail price of RM2,698, with the phone itself available in Aluminium and Graphite colour variants. Each purchase of the Nexus 6P on Lazada and VMall will also get you a free Google Chromecast, limited to the first 200 customers on VMall, and first 400 customers on Lazada.
