T-Mobile Nexus 6 to receive a WiFi calling update in early 2015

Nexus 6 Lollipop

The Motorola Nexus 6 smartphone is going to be talked about a lot in the coming days. And for the first time since the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, this year’s Nexus handset will be available through all major carriers of the U.S. One of these carriers, T-Mobile, has now announced that its version of the Google flagship will receive an update carrying the WiFi calling feature sometime in early 2015.

The carrier refused to provide a specific date as to when this OTA update will be sent out to the smartphone. T-Mobile however mentions that the update will be rolled out thanks to a feature in Android 5.0 Lollipop, which means older Nexus devices could also get the feature should the carriers choose to activate it. But this is only left to our interpretation at this point with no confirmation from Google or the carriers yet.

T-Mobile is expected to sell the Nexus 6 through its retail channels starting November 12 for $649.92 off contract or in 24 monthly installments of $27.08 each. There’s no word on the pricing of the 64GB model as of yet, but expect it to cost close to $100 more than the entry level Nexus 6. The smartphone will be up for pre-order starting October 29.
