Check out these photos of the all new Nexus 6P in Matte Gold

At CES 2016 we were introduced to the Huawei made Google Nexus 6P in Matte Gold. It was shown to us in person at the Mandalay Bay on Jan. 5th where we got a sample unit to take home. I used the Nexus 6P for over six weeks before I gave a raving review of it in November. The version I was using was the 64GB in Graphite which was extremely durable and good looking.

Gold and premium metals seemed to be a theme at CES this year, and Huawei showcased the Nexus 6P in Matte Gold. All of the internal hardware is identical to the other colors, the only difference being the new color, and it looks gorgeous. The color is perfect for men, women and children and has a luxurious color with polished edges that make it pop. The Nexus 6P works on all major carriers and is sold unlocked direct from Google with free shipping here, with a starting price of $499.

    I know it’s a bit of a general question but what’s up with gold/rose gold rage of electronics lately? Is it mainly because it’s not your standard black, white or metallic colors?
