Google and Huawei have proposed a considerable settlement for the plaintiffs in the class-action lawsuit filed against the duo back in 2017, when a number of Google Nexus 6P owners started complaining that their handset kept slipping into a bootloop and wouldn’t last for more than a few hours on a single charge.
So how has Huawei wound up in that mess? Well, it manufactured the Nexus 6P on behalf of Google; therefore it’s as much to blame for the handset’s shortcomings as Big G. And it’s cost them both, with the total settlement weighing in at $9.75 million, with $400 set to be awarded to each plaintiff involved in the lawsuit.
Meanwhile, those who didn’t take their case to court could still be eligible to some form of compensation, if the court accepts Google and Huawei’s settlement deal. The twosome propose that Nexus 6P owners who can prove their device suffered from the aforementioned issues will be compensated a minimum of $10.
