Nexus 6P and 5X launched!Tuesday, September 29, 2015
Today, Google held a conference in San Francisco, where they introduced Chromecast gadgets and Android 6.0 Marshmallow and most importantly, two Nexus flagship devices: Nexus 5X from LG and Nexus 6P form Huawei.
"The Nexus 5X offers top of the line performance at an affordable price," said Google, while unveiling its new device. Built with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 processor, it has a perfect specs for almost every user. The Nexus 5X has a 1080p display protected by Gorilla Glass 3, also s new 12-megapixel camera with 1.55-micron pixels and 4K video shooting, and a USB-C charging connector. It also has a 2,700mAh battery, 2GB of memory, and the laser auto-focus system that LG introduced with its G3 smartphone last year. The biggest change from Nexus 6 is fingerprint censor on the back, now used of Android pay.
Google unveiled the Nexus 6P, with a slightly smaller form factor than his predecessor- 5.7-inch display. The phone is only 7.3mm thick and is supposed to be about the same overall size as the iPhone 6 Plus — that means it's fits bigger screen in the same form factor (Google is very proud of that). That screen has a WQHD AMOLED display, two front-facing speakers, 12.3 MP Sony camera sensor. On stage Google showed some photos compared to iPhone 6s and Nexus 6P performed better, especially in low-light conditions. As well as Nexus 5X, the device has fingerprint sensor on the back, and USB type C charging port. On this Nexus, it has turbo charge feature, which, again, compared to iPhone 6s, charges the device twice as fast. It packs Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GB of RAM. It also includes a large 3450mAh battery.
Google has priced the 16GB Nexus 5X at $379 in the United States, Nexus 6P starting at $499. Both will be sold unlocked and will work across major US networks. All Nexus preorders (which start today) will include a 90-day free trial of Google Play Music and a $50 Play Store credit. Google also introduced a new Nexus Protect warranty program, which costs $69 for the Nexus 5X and provides two years of mechanical breakdown and accidental damage coverage. You'll get an overnight replacement unit sent to you while your original is being repaired, promises Google.Follow @MouthfulOfTech
