The Nexus 6 is the first phablet to carry Google's flagship Nexus brand. This, combined with its top-end specifications, has made the Nexus 6 one of the biggest smartphones on offer in 2015 for a variety of reasons.
Aware of this, buyers around the globe have clamoured for any snippet of information they can find on the Google phone.
So we've collected key bits of information on the Nexus 6 including its UK price, availability and internal specifications.
The Nexus was originally expected to launch on 1 December. Since the release Google has struggled to keep all versions of the Nexus 6 in stock, and the official Play Store has regularly listed the handset as unavailable.
The 64GB version has been a particularly rare sight and is currently listed as out of stock on the Play Store. The 32GB Nexus 6 is currently on sale in the Play Store and carries a 9 January shipping estimate.
The 32GB version of the Nexus 6 is in stock at Carphone Warehouse although the 64GB model is still available only for pre-order.
Vodafone has the phone on offer but with a one- to two-week shipping delay. O2 is selling the Nexus 6 with a two-week delivery estimate.
The reasons for the Nexus 6's delayed launch are not clear, although it is not the first time Google has struggled to get its Nexus devices to market to meet consumer demand.
Google revealed the 32GB Nexus 6 will cost £499, while the 64GB will cost a hefty £549 in the UK. The pricing makes the Nexus 6 one of the most expensive Google phones in recent memory and puts it in direct competition with the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4.
Carphone Warehouse has matched the Google Play Store price and is currently offering the 32GB Nexus 6 SIM-free for £499 or free on a £34.50 per month contract.
V3 recently reviewed the Nexus 6 and were suitably impressed, awarding the phone four stars out of five.
While it may be the most expensive Nexus phone yet, the inclusion of Android 5.0 Lollipop, a powerful Qualcomm processor, dazzlingly bright and sharp display and above average camera make it an impressive piece of kit.
The only negatives we could find with the Nexus 6 were the lack of a microSD card slot and the fact that, for some, the giant size will prove off-putting. However, for fans of Google's Nexus device there is plenty to recommend it.
The Nexus 6 is one of the highest specced Google handsets ever made, offering some seriously impressive internal components and features in its metal chassis.
Chief among these are the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, sizeable 6in, 1440x2560 resolution, 493ppi touchscreen and 13MP rear camera with optical image stabilisation technology.
As an added bonus the Nexus 6 also features wireless charging support and a custom 'Turbo Charger' which Google claims will load the Nexus 6's 3220mAh battery with six hours of juice from a 15-minute charge.
On the software front the Nexus 6 will feature Google's latest Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system. Lollipop is a major update to Android that brings a number of new features, including a reworked 'Material' user interface and direct integration of Samsung's Knox security service.
Knox is an enterprise-focused feature that lets IT managers set up a separate password-protected area on the phone that encrypts and protects data.
The 'Material Design' aims to make the OS simpler to use and replaces Android KitKat's user interface with a flatter one similar to that of Apple's iOS 7. The upgrade also allows Android's UI to mimic depth by adding new shadow effects.
One feature the Nexus 6 does lack is a fingerprint scanner. This is starting to become more commonplace in high-end phones, notably the iPhone.
Former Motorola CEO Doug Woodside admitted recently that Apple's inclusion of the Touch ID scanner in the iPhone 5S forced Motorola to shelve plans to add such a feature, as it was not confident that it could match Apple's capabilities.
"The secret behind that is that it was supposed to be fingerprint recognition, and Apple bought the best supplier," Woodside told The Telegraph.
"So the second best supplier was the only one available to everyone else in the industry and they weren’t there yet."
