Google is holding a media event on Monday 29 September, where it is likely to announce two new Nexus Android smartphones, the Nexus 6P and the Nexus 5X.
Nexus 5X will have a 5.2in screen. Nexus 5X will be powered by a Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor – 3GB of RAM. The phone will be running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Storage will be either 16GB or 32GB. The Nexus 5X Camera will feature a 13-megapixel rear sensor from Sony with infrared autofocus. The front-facing camera will be 5MP. Other features may include a fingerprint sensor and a USB Type-C port.
Nexus 5X price and release date
It is claimed the Nexus 5X will cost fractionally below $400 (£260), putting it in a similar price category as the original Nexus 4 and 5, and far below the iPhone 6s and Samsung Galaxy S6. As for a release date, this is something of an unknown, although TalkAndroid claims pre-orders will open on 13 October, with shipping to commence between one and three weeks later.
The Nexus 6P will have a 5.7in screen with Quad HD resolution (515ppi). The Nexus 6P will have a redesigned camera housing, plus the same fingerprint sensor as the Nexus 5X.
The new phone will have two front-facing speakers, and it too will feature a USB Type-C port.
