Thanks to some major leaks over the last couple of weeks, we know now almost everything about the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P which are due to be unveiled tomorrow. Now, Android Police has revealed some key information about the availability of the new Nexus devices.

According to their sources, Google will only be selling the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P online this year. This means that the handset will not be available for purchase through Best Buy or other carrier stores in the United States.

The company has taken this decision to push its new Google Store, which it wants to act as a one-stop-point for all the hardware and devices it sells. It is unclear whether the new Nexus handsets will be available through Amazon or other online e-commerce websites or not in the United States and other launch countries or not.

Both new Nexus handsets will feature the required bands to work across all the major U.S. carriers, so you can simply order the handset through Google Store — whenever it is available — and pop in your SIM card and start using the phone when it lands on your doorstep.
