While Google will be offering pre-orders for the new Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P from September 29, there'll be a little delay on that at least from one UK carrier, EE. But, it has confirmed it will be offering both new phones to its customers and they'll be able to pre-order them from October 9.

The Nexus 6P will cost £29.99 on a new plan of either £36.99 or £39.99 per month for 1GB or 2GB of data respectively. Pre-orders will be available both in store and online.

The Nexus 5X will naturally cost a bit less, with a £19.99 up front cost on a £31.99 or £34.99 a month deal, with 500MB or 1GB of data included on each respectively. As ever, there may be other tariffs available. Again, pre-orders will be in store and online.

  • The 5X prices are a bit expensive in comparison to the handset prices. Sim only and credit card seems much more logical, especially when the handset will be 'old' in 12 months. Posted via the Android Central App
  • 1Gb of Data or go for the 4G+ with 2Gb Come on EE time for real world Data plans. The minimum in today's world should be 2Gb with the next tier at 3-5Gb.
    Prices with EE are too high anyway for my liking and I am yet to get decent reception in my part of London.
  • £19 a month (when factoring out the cost of the phone), for a 500mb plan? EE, do you think we're stupid? Posted via the Android Central App
  • It's not £19.99/month, it's £19.99 up front payment followed by minimum £31.99/month for (I presume) 24 months. Bit pricey considering it's £339 for the 16GB 5X. Posted via the Android Central App
  • £32 a month x 24 months = £768 + £20 = £788 £788 - £339(the phone) = £449 £449 ÷ 24 months = £18.70 a month Or £19 a month for a 500mb plan... Give or take a few pense. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Ahh. Misread your original post. Ignore me. Posted via the Android Central App
  • 500MB and 16GB doesn't get you very far these days, so you'd need the £35/month contract and the £379 handset. You're talking £35 x 24 = £840 + £379 for the handset = £1219! RIP OFF! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Actually the handset is included in the £840, so you subtract it. anyway you look at it though, EE is taking us for fools. I can get a 500mb plan from Tesco and buy the phone unlocked, and save myself £268 Which is probably what I'll do. Posted via the Android Central App

  • No news on wifi calling. :-/ Posted via the Android Central App
  • Did we ever find out what the P and X stand for? Posted via Bacon
  • At last I can get one as a Company phone instead of buying my own. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Ridiculous pricing. Be mad to take these contracts out. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yep, but few people will do the maths, so the carriers get away with it. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Buy off contract. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Always always always. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I always have done this in the past, but with O2 Refresh I got last years Nexus 6, a phone that was priced at £480 for £420.
    This is on a Device and Airtime contract for 24 months, but as the small print says once the device has been paid up you can terminate if you wish, your contract.
    What I did once I received the phone was to pay the balance immediately but continue to use the airtime, which allows me to chop and change at will.
    Personally I'm waiting to see if O2 offer the 6P (especially the 64 & 128Gb models) on Refresh and hopefully I can make huge savings yet again. PS O2 will also SIM unlock the device from day one (The Nexus 6 was unlocked from factory)
    PPS You can always choose to continue with the installments if you so choose
    PPPS If you do pay the phone price in full on day one you can contact O2 and terminate contract, in effect buying off contract as long s you haven't used any minutes or data
