Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P UK price, release date and best deals

We reveal the UK price and release date as well as the best UK deals for the LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P from all of the big UK networks, including Vodafone, Three and O2.

When are the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P released in the UK?

Pre-orders for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P have already opened, starting September 29th 2015. The handsets are available to pre-order from the Google Store. You can expect to take delivery of the Nexus 5X in 3-4 weeks and the Nexus 6P in 4-5 weeks according to Google, or in other words near the end of October 2015.

However, the 32GB model of the Nexus 6P is unavailable to pre-order at the time of writing.

How much does the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P cost in the UK SIM-free?

The Nexus 5X costs £339 in the UK for the 16GB version. The 32GB model costs £379.

The Nexus 6P costs £449 in the UK for the 32GB version. The 64GB model costs £499 and the 128GB model costs £579.

What are the best UK monthly deals for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P?

So far the UK networks have been pretty quiet about the Nexus 5X and 6P but we’re expecting their deals to all be announced shortly.


The Nexus 6P will be available from Vodafone, starting at £45 per month (with a rather pointless £9 upfront cost) on a Red Value Bundle. That sum includes unlimited texts, unlimited minutes and 4GB of data. And of course, as usual you can choose to get free Netflix, Spotify Premium or NOW TV for six months.

As an added incentive, customers who pre-order the Nexus 6P will also receive a free Huawei 7” T1 tablet.


O2 has revealed that it will range the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P, on the Refresh tariff. That means that if you wish to upgrade to either Nexus from your existing phone, you only have to pay off the remaining value of your handset. You can also recycle your old phone, with O2 offering up to £160 for the Nexus 6.

Carphone Warehouse

Carphone Warehouse will also stock the new Nexus handsets with Nexus 5X pre-orders starting on Wednesday September 30th at 9am. Prices will start from £27.50 per month for the Nexus 5X, or £349 SIM-free. You can bag an exclusive ice blue model which looks pretty damn gorgeous, a serious step up from the bland black model.

Nexus 6P pre-orders started on Friday October 2nd. The first 5000 customers to pre-order a Nexus will receive the new Chromecast for free.


GiffGaff has also confirmed availability, with the Nexus 5X in stock from early October and the Nexus 6P arriving mid-November.
