In addition to the latest generation Nexus lineup, the LG-made Nexus 5X and Huawei-built Nexus 6P, Google has also introduced the new Chromecast. Here is a list of price details of the three devices pertaining to the U.S., the U.K., Europe, Canada and Australia.
Speaking of predecessor Nexus 6, Google made the handset bigger and increased the price substantially when compared to the well-received Nexus 5.

Meanwhile, Android Police has painstakely gathered pricing details of the LG Nexus 5X, Huawei Nexus 6P and Chromecast from across the globe. As it turns out, Eurozone and the U.K. top the charts to offer relatively expensive Nexus devices. The reason for the heavy price tag, however, has reportedly been addressed by Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google's VP of Engineering, via Reddit.
According to Lockheimer, the higher price ambit is because of the difference in distribution costs, tariffs, cost structure and exchange rates, among other factors. Also, add in the weak value of Euro and the heavy VAT charge as possible reasons.
