Earlier this week, we learned that the Nexus 6 will soon make its way onto Verizon’s shelves. We still don’t know exactly when that release will happen, but today one other detail of the device may have been revealed.
An image sent to Phandroid from a “trusted source” claims to show the Verizon version of the Nexus 6, and yes, it’s got a Verizon logo on its backside. The branding is on the bottom of the phone beneath the Nexus logo, similar to the Nexus 6 that’s sold by AT&T.
While still unconfirmed, I don’t think many folks would be shocked to see Verizon release a branded version of the Nexus 6. Not only is Verizon known for plastering its logo all over its hardware, but AT&T has already placed its tattoo on the Nexus 6, and so I’m sure that Verizon wouldn’t want to AT&T be the only one with a branded N6.
Exactly what else Verizon plans to do to its Nexus 6 is a mystery for now. However, AT&T crammed a SIM lock, tethering check, and some ringtones into its N6, and so it’s likely that Verizon will slip some software into its version of the device.
