I really will be disappointed at Google if this is true. I planned to wait for Sailfish (lower end Nexus (at the time it was still Nexus) device), since i expected that they'd do something like 5X, weaker cheapset and build quality (SD 652 would have been a good candidate) and a cheaper price.
But this is outrageous. It seems i'll go with Sony after all (especially with the fiasco that my sister is having with her S7). Currently considering Xperia X or XA Ultra, we'll see what i'll get (Axon 7 and OP3 aren't an option).
Anything over 500$ is an overkill for a Nexus/Pixes phone. They should use them to spread Android at lower cost (and timely updates), but it seems they don't plan on doing that anymore.
Really disappointed for now...
HTC can never build cheap phones.... would be a miracle to see a decent price from them. Even on Nexus... I mean Pixel.
They can keep it
I love nexus products(I have 2 nexus 5,a nexus 6,a nexus 6p and a nexus 7 2013)but this time they will fail if those rumors are true
Why a 5 inch,and a 5.5?..make the other at least 5.7 lol
Wtf dudes 650$us is 857cad lol no way I would buy a phone at that price never ever, be a Sammy or a iPhone(that i would never buy anyway)i am a construction worker i am tough on my phones,i would have a very bad day breaking my 900$ phone
I don't really care I bought a Xiaomi max last week just for fun
Keep them this year I'll pass.. even use 5.5 is too small for me and I hate HTC
If I break my n6p,i will buy another one ..the specs are more than enough for my usage
Sorry for my English dudes;)

Wow what a Joke I was considering the Pixel Xl but there is no way in hell I'm dropping over $650 for it & the smaller pixel is out of the Question looks like its gonna be Axom7 or OnePlus3 what Garbage Google is pulling this year . they were definitely on the right track with the 6p Now the pull all this Crap using the defunct HTC & Boosting prices this is Garbage if this Pricepoint Boost / Rape turns out to be true I'll be so discusted with Google I'll refuse to buy the phone nomater how awesome it is just on principal.
If true then sod it , every phone this year is overpriced and still not coming down in price. Want to try Blackberry Priv,HTC 10,Huawei P9 and so on but all still expensive. Xiamio MI-5 is excellent for me but no support here in UK.
For the people expecting the 299$ price.. ha ha ha !
I guess that's why Google killed the Nexus program, so they can sell the same devices for triple the price. They already started the trend with the latest Nexus series. The glory days of the Nexus 5 are sadly over. The device looks like potato, and they grew fine charging upmarket pricing for it. Crazy.
The pricing is to high there are many better options for that price. 400-500 would have it justified i believe.
Lol. Overpriced yet still only get OS updates for two or 3 years at best. Epic fail Google.
Google have no idea what they are doing when it comes to mobile devices. These will be very niche and sell in tiny tiny numbers. The Nexus devices were a joke in sales volume (despite being good devices) and these will sell in even smaller numbers. What a joke!
They are repeating the same mistake with the Motorola Nexus 6. Android users aren't sheeps. You can't make your phones too expensive.
tedleaf333, 20 Sep 2016The reason that all the big makers "flagship" devices have gone up is because that's what they... moreSamsung is nearly bankrupt ? Did you hit your head or what. Samsung is a conglomerate they make everything from weapons and robots to building the world's tallest skyscrapers, their mobile section probably make 15% of their overall profit
