The much-awaited Motorola Nexus 6 was expected to be released on Wednesday, 12 November but it didn't happen. Now, T-Mobile has confirmed on Google+ that the launch of the device has been delayed by a week.
The Nexus 6 was unveiled along with the Nexus 9 and Android 5.0 Lollipop on 15 October but Google didn't reveal the release date.
"To give +T-Mobile customers the best experience possible, we're moving our #Nexus6 launch out one week to 11/19," wrote T-Mobile on its Google+ account.
The confirmation on the release date of the Nexus 6 came on the heels of reports that sources from the carrier had told a Reddit user that the device would be launched on 12 November.
"I decided to call up all of the T-Mobile stores in my area to see if they had any info. The first 3 declined having any information. The next one I called said it would be released on the 12th. I asked if they would have it in the store and he said that if not they would ship it," a Reddit user had earlier wrote.
Meanwhile, AT&T opened pre-order for the Nexus 6 on Wednesday. The price of the device put up by the carrier is $249.99 with a two-year contract and $682.99 for the unlocked version. The device is available on the carrier in Midnight Blue but it is not clear if both the 32GB and 64GB versions will be on sale.

Besides T-Mobile and AT&T, other major US carriers like Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and US Cellular have also announced that the Nexus 6 would be available on its site.
