The Nexus 6P is our favorite Android phone on the market right now, but let's face it: the Aluminum, Graphite and Frost finish options don't have enough pizazz for everyone. To help up the phone's baller quotient, Huawei just announced that the matte Gold version of the phone will see the light of day in the United States. Yep, its days as a Japan and India exclusive are over — the thing will be available at Best Buy stores and Google's starting at 1PM Pacific time today, also known as right now. Consider it a CES miracle.

Just so we're clear, there's not much else to get worked up about — this Nexus 6P, fly as it is, is functionally identical to the versions many of you already own. Then again, considering how gold phones are definitively a thing a now, we're frankly a little surprised this move took so long to pull off. If we're really lucky, we just might get a version of the 6P clad in the same lurid Rose Gold that Huawei's Mate S got. Trust us: if such a thing is lurking in an exec's jacket pocket here at the show, we will find it.
