The Nexus 6P was officially released in Canada last November in graphite and aluminium. The frost coloured model quickly followed but many were seeking the matte gold variation. As previously reported, Canadians can now purchase this from the Google Store.

Not only is the gold eye-catching, but Google and Huawei made the price attractive, too. While the graphite, aluminium and frost are all currently available for $699 CAD (which was its original price at launch), the matte gold Nexus 6P has immediately been put on sale with a $50 savings at $649.99 for the 32GB model, or $699.99 for the 64GB model.

In addition, those who buy the Nexus 6P will also receive a $50 credit towards the purchase of a Huawei Watch.

The Nexus 6P runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, sports a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 pixel AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 32GB internal storage, 12.3MP camera and a 3,450mAh battery.

  • Mo Dabbas

    hmm, the 50 bucks off is tempting

      50$ on 500$ is 10% and does make a big enough difference, 50$ on a 699$ less so, I think. if they got a 10% down south we should’ve had the same deal here.

      Why do they convert the prices but not the specials.

    • JayDDeeeee

    Boo to the discount only being on the fugly gold colour.

      Isn’t that gold is the most demanded color when it was initially available on the iPhone? I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

      Nicki Minaj apparently also has multiple platinum albums. I have a hard time trusting public opinion when the public repeatedly makes such terrible decisions.

      There’s no accounting for taste.

    • FlamesFan89

      nope, just a guy with working ears.
