Google began offering replacement units to affected owners but seems to have run out of stock. And since Huawei has stopped making the device, Google has decided to offer a better replacement –  a spanking new Pixel XL.

Owners of faulty Nexus 6P units including those whose one year warranty has elapsed are eligible for the replacements. However, it is limited to those in the US, Canada, and the UK. The condition is that the screen must not be cracked neither should the phone have suffered water damage.

Those in Canada will get the 32GB version of the Pixel XL while those in the States will receive the 128GB variant. The replacement unit will be sent ahead and there will be a temporary charge on your card. If Google doesn’t receive your Nexus 6P 21 days after the replacement ships, the charge will be permanent.
