The Motorola Nexus 6 is soon to be succeeded by newer Nexus 2015 smartphones. Google is pushing to clear stocks of the Nexus 6 handsets by offering attractive discounts in the United Kingdom.

According to Phone Arena, the Google Store for U.K. customers is now selling the unlocked Nexus 6 with a reduced price tag of £304 ($475) for the 32 GB variant. The price of the 64 GB model has been reduced to £379 ($591).

The site also reveals that the Nexus 6 is available with reduced price elsewhere in Europe. The 32 GB Nexus 6 is available in Germany for €419 ($464) and the 64 GB version of the Nexus 6 is priced at €479 ($531). In the U.S., the 32 GB Nexus 6 is priced at $499 and the 64 GB Nexus 6 is $549 on Amazon and Best Buy.

The Nexus 6 is the flagship smartphone from Google that was released in October 2014. It is the first Nexus phablet model that features a massive display of 5.96 inches that supports Quad HD resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. Also, it is the first handset to come preinstalled with Android 5.0 Lollipop OS. The handset has received the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update.

Phone Arena says the Nexus 5 that came out in 2013 is the best Nexus handset to date. It came with good specifications along with an affordable price tag. However, the large-sized Nexus 6 and hefty price tag did not impress customers as much.

The Google Nexus 6 is expected to get replaced by newer model later this year. Rumors are that the Nexus 2015 smartphones will be available as two variants. One will be manufactured by LG and the other by Huawei.

The next Nexus handset is expected to come with numerous features such as fingerprint sensor, 3D dual-camera setup, Android M and more. As of this writing, there is no official confirmation on the Nexus 6 from Google.
