    $425 I say.

    A better game would be "will the camera and battery suck again"

    One thing to keep in mind is that the Nexus 5 cost more buying it from carriers last year than buying it from Google. I expect the same to be the case this year.

    My guess is $499 from Google and much more from Verizon.

    maybe they will get rid of the 16GB base model and start with 32GB

    16GB Nexus 5 = $349
    32GB Nexus 5 = $399

    vs
    32GB Nexus 6 = $449
    64GB Nexus 6 = $499


    they can justify the $100 more (base model) because of these reasons.

    - bigger storage (32GB vs 16GB)
    - bigger screen
    - higher resolution
    - better camera
    - bigger battery


    or it is just $50 more (32GB vs 32GB)

    for

    - bigger screen
    - higher resolution
    - better camera
    - bigger battery

    "Indian import/export Zauba recently listed two “Shamu phones (prototype)” with model number Motorola XT1112 arrived India on August 20. The devices were shipped from the U.S. and have a declared value of 34,982 Indian rupees ($578) each. Note that the price listing is a declared value, which may not accurately reflect the actual market price."

    But everyone should still manage their expectations for a "cheap" Nexus

    My guess is $399 for the cheapest model. Although I wouldn't be surprised to see 449 or 499.

    There was a leaked price at Best Buy for $500, I think. I wouldn't mind paying $450 for a Nexus 6, but I really hope it's not a whale sized of a phone.

    Predict the price for the Nexus 6

    I'm going with $449 for the base model and $499 for the larger capacity size. Just hope they don't start off with 16 gigs

    Never understood the idea about a 64 Bit support on Android L being a highlight for the Nexus 6 itself. If it had a 810 processor, that's a different story.

    With that in mind, for the UK i'm gonna go with

    £399 = 32GB base model
    £449 = 64GB

    Hopefully 32GB is the base model. I think they'll continue selling the 5 alongside the 6.

    I want it to be $399 base price.

    Probably looking at $499 16GB base price, $549 32GB at the cheapest.

    Going to be a tough sell in the USA at those prices.

    Nah, it will be available with subsidies like the iPhone is, so the on contract price will be far cheaper.
