According to a post over at the XDA forums, the Nexus 6 will soon receive a Sand/Gold color variant, much like the Nexus 9 tablet. The Sand variant of the Nexus 9 is hard to come by at the moment, so it will be interesting to see how Motorola handles the availability of the Nexus 6 if this turns out to be true. The smartphone is already facing stocks and supply related issues, so perhaps Motorola and Google have saved this for some time in the coming months.
As of now, the Nexus 6 is only sold in Cloud White and Midnight Blue color variants, so the addition of a Gold or Sand color will be welcome. Earlier this year, Google and LG introduced a special Red version of the Nexus 5 for Valentine’s Day, so we’re hoping this new variant will be available at around the same time.
The person who posted on the XDA forums is citing a “Google rep”, so that’s all the info on the source we have at the moment. In any case, we recommend you take the report with a pinch of salt until Google or Motorola offers more information on the matter.
