Google Launches the LG Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6P

Google Launches the LG Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6PGoogle announced the newest members of the Nexus family, the LG Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6P, on Tuesday, 29th September, during the Nexus event.

“The Nexus devices are our idea of embodiment of the perfect Android device – a platform for application developers to show off the new features of Marshmallow and show what Android can do,” said Andrei Popescu, an engineering director within Google’s Android team.

The LG Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6P are one of the first devices to come preloaded with Marshmallow – Android’s newest version that promises an improved material design and enhanced battery life amongst other spectacular features.

The LG-built Nexus 5X is the smaller of the two flagships, boasting of a 5.2-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920p resolution and a density of 423 pixels per inch. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The device runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 and RAM is pegged at 2GB. There is a 12.3-megapixel camera at the back of the device and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The Nexus 5X is also accompanied by a non-removable 2700mAh battery and 16GB/32GB internal memory.


The Huawei Nexus 6P on the other hand poses as a big brother to the Nexus 5X with a whooping 5.7-inch AMOLED display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Screen resolution is 1440 x 2560p with a density of 518 pixels per inch. The Nexus 6P runs on Snapdragon 810 and is powered by an Octa-Core processor. You’ll find a 12-megapixel camera slapped at the back of the device and an 8-megapixel camera in front. A bigger 3450mAh battery rests underneath the hood of the Nexus 6P.

Android Marshmallow is said to be the most polished version of Android to date and the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P were made to illustrate the sophistication of the new Android version. However, the two Nexus devices weren’t the only ones getting all the attention. Google also introduced its first Android tablet, the Pixel C, which comes with a magnetic keyboard and gives Microsoft Surface a run for its money.


Although they were announced together, the two Nexus flagships will be released separately with the Nexus 5X coming to stores on the 16th of October costing £339 for 32GB of storage and £379 for 64GB of storage. The Nexus 6P trails after on the 26th of October and will cost £449 for 32GB of storage, £449 for 64GB of storage, and £579 for 128GB of storage.
