It’s an old story: a phone arrives on store shelves to rave reviews, then reveals serious flaws, prompting customers to file a class-action lawsuit. The Nexus 6P may have started off strong, but it didn’t take long for issues with premature shutdowns and bootlooping to surface. Huawei and Google paid out settlements to owners early last year, but it appears that another round of payments is on its way.
According to one of our readers, new returns are being sent to users who filed claims for the Nexus 6P. The payout appears to vary; our tipster received $11.33, but Kellen at Droid Life received $6.14. It’s an odd timing, given that payments for this settlement were made well over a year ago, and because the website linked in the description states that final distribution for claims will be sent no later than February 21st, 2020.
In all likelihood, this is a case of additional unclaimed funds from the settlement, but it’s still unusual for such an event to occur unannounced more than a year later. If you owned a Nexus 6P and received cash last year, you should check your bank or PayPal account. You might have some extra cash saved up for this weekend.
