There have also been some leaked images of the devices and their retail packaging thanks to Android Police.
Yes, you read the title right! Google is indeed releasing two smartphones this year: the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P. The Nexus 5X will be more budget-oriented with a rumored price of $399. The price, of course, depends on the amount of storage you're looking to buy with an expected price difference of $50-$100 for the 32GB variant while the 16GB variant will be the standard. The Nexus 6P will have 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB variants with a price that is yet to be announced. Neither of the two will include expandable storage, unfortunately. While storage might be important for the average user, some advanced users will make their decision on the specs.
Under the hood of the Nexus 5X (made by LG) you'll find Qualcomm's Snapdragon 808 along with 3GB of RAM and the Adreno 418 GPU. The screen will be 1080p along with having a 5.2" display. The rear camera is a mere 12.3 MP while the front-facing camera boasts a 5MP shooter, though the quality of the photos should not be based on this. The device may or may not last you the whole day thanks to somewhat small 2,700mAh battery.
The Nexus 6P, which is designed by Huawei, will be Google's newest flagship with the latest revision of the Snapdragon 810. The GPU accompanying the eight core processor would be the Adreno 420 and if you're a fan of phablets you'd love to know that this device has a nice large 5.7" qHD display. Whether the 3,500mAh battery will suffice remains in question.
Both models bring something new to the table: the USB Type-C charging port, which will be replacing the outdated micro USB seen in most Android devices today. They will also come packed with fingerprint scanners, just like most devices flagships today. Both phones will be shipping out with the latest version of Android: Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Anymore news related to the upcoming devices will be supplied on September 29 where Google will be holding a special event.
