Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P available for pre-order (and on Fi) today

This week the folks at Google have made available the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P on pre-order. Both devices will be shipping later in October, and both devices have multiple sizes of internal storage, and therefor multiple price points. The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will be available from the Google Store inside the United States - outside the USA, users will be able to buy these devices at retailers. Both devices will come with a free 90-day subscription to Google Play Music and $50 credit for Google Play software and media.

Nexus 5X detailed by Google: the “all-around” smartphone

The Nexus 5X works with Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box. It'll have a 5.2-inch display with Full-HD resolution with LCD technology covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 up front. This device has a fingerprint scanner at its back with the same name as the Nexus 6P's, called Nexus Imprint.

Nexus 6P detailed by Google: all metal photo master

This morning Google revealed the Nexus 6P for the first time. This device will be coming in Aluminium, Graphite, and Frost colors - and there'll be a Gold version likely appearing next year, so we hear. The device will be available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB editions. This smartphone is the first "fully metal" Nexus device, coming with an aluminum back and sides. This device has a 12.3-megapixel camera at its back with 1.5 micron pixels, the "best camera [Google] has ever put in a Nexus device."

Google event tomorrow: what to expect

Google event tomorrow: what to expect

Tomorrow we'll be at a Google event that's sure to flip the script on their Nexus program as well as Chromecast - just for starters. This event will be the launch site for Android Marshmallow. This is the next big software update for Android, bringing about a new operating system face that'll look relatively similar to the last face. Functionality will change, of course, mostly on the two new Nexus smartphones the company has yet to reveal.

Nexus 6P fully-detailed ahead of Google’s big Tuesday reveal

Nexus 6P fully-detailed ahead of Google’s big Tuesday reveal

We weren't in much doubt that Google's event on September 29 would be packed with two new smartphones, but fresh leaks fully detail the Nexus 6P that will share double-billing. Any doubts that it might be a true Nexus flagship seem to have been jettisoned along the way, too, with the promise of an all-metal body, a 5.7-inch WQHD display with Gorilla Glass 4 protection, and a sizable 3,450 mAh battery.

Nexus 6P, 5X leaked again, this time with colors

Nexus 6P, 5X leaked again, this time with colors

Just because Google's announced event is just around the corner doesn't mean the leaks and rumors have to stop. Quite the opposite, everyone is trying to get their last minute unofficial sources in before all of it is either validated or made moot. For example, we're once again getting some more or less better quality PR images of the Huawei Nexus 6P and the LG Nexus 5X. This time, however, we're also being given a peek at the color options that might be available when the two land next week.

Nexus 6P and 5X details boring, just like they’re supposed to be

Nexus 6P and 5X details boring, just like they’re supposed to be

When Google created the Nexus program for smartphones (and eventually tablets), they didn't intend to compete with Samsung. They didn't intend to put HTC out of business or drive LG out of the United States. Google wanted to create a program where they could bring their base vision for Android to life, and to do so with developers in mind. Sure, they sell these devices from their store to anyone - you can buy a Nexus device with support from almost any major carrier now, too. But don't be surprised when your new Nexus 5X doesn't have a camera as sharp as the iPhone 6s.

Nexus 6P press photo pops up, retail boxes confirm names

In just less than a week, Google has a scheduled event where it might possibly reveal the two new Nexus smartphones, one from LG and one from Huawei. Naturally, leaks and rumors are ramping up to beat the deadline. This latest batch seemingly confirm some of the things we've been seeing and hearing about, particularly the rather odd design on the back of Hauwei's Nexus. Alleged retail boxes of both Nexus smartphones have also appeared, confirming the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P monikers leaked earlier.

Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P names tipped for new Google phones

Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P names tipped for new Google phones

Google's next set of Nexus devices have had details leaked on hardware, software, and now naming schemes before launch. Word today is that the smaller of the two devices will be called Nexus 5X - that's the LG-made device. The larger of the two smartphones is said to be called Nexus 6P. Does the P stand for "Prints"? Or maybe it stands for "Power". Or it could stand for nothing at all - we wouldn't be entirely surprised whatever it ends up being.

Google App APK download one step away from “On Tap”

Google App APK download one step away from “On Tap”

This week the folks at Google have released Google App v5.3, a version made to NEARLY bring Google Now On Tap to Nexus devices. Of course you'll need to have a Developer Preview build ready to go, and you'll need to be on Developer Preview M 3, but once you are, there's a bit of treasure to (almost) be found. This update also brings on the full Marshmallow user interface aesthetic to the Google Now launcher.

Alleged Huawei Nexus with Snapdragon 810 gets benchmarked

Alleged Huawei Nexus with Snapdragon 810 gets benchmarked

A lot more attention as probably been given to LG's rumored third Nexus smartphone, but Huawei's entry into the family has more implications for Google. That's not to say, however, that this first Chinese-made Nexus won't have interesting points. Rumors speak of its larger 2K resolution, for example. But those same rumors also betray a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, one of the most infamous chips of recent days, running inside. Now a GeekBench sighting might be giving eager Nexus fans something new to worry about: performance.
