nexus 6 verizon side-by-side

Oh, come on — when you heard Verizon was getting a Nexus 6 you didn’t expect them not to shove their logo on it somehow, did you? That’s exactly what’s going to happen as evidenced by this leaked render given to Phandroid by a trusted source.

Unfortunately, that’s all we know about Verizon’s Nexus 6 at this point, though we’re not expecting it to be much different from the Nexus 6 we’ve already reviewed. A sign-up button for the phone appeared on the company’s website without a formal announcement, but Verizon has yet to come out with any other details in regards to its arrival.

For what it’s worth Verizon isn’t the only carrier who opted to stick their logo onto the back of the latest Nexus phone. If you don’t recall we had an entire post about scrubbing AT&T’s model of its own impurities, including the removal of the carrier’s logo through the use of a pocket knife or some slightly rough sandpaper.

It’s our hope that Verizon’s Nexus 6 won’t be loaded to the brim with bloatware, though we’re expecting at least a couple of “essential” apps (such as MyVerizon and Visual Voicemail) to come along for the ride. Let’s just hope the buck will stop there, and that their second attempt at offering a Nexus phone goes a lot better than the Galaxy Nexus debacle of 2011.
