Right after Apple and Samsung announced their new flagship smart phones, it is Google’s turn to unveil theirs. In its 7th smart phone iteration, Google will be announcing 2 Nexus models with a 5 incher from LG and a larger phablet from Huawei.
The official unveiling is happening next week on 29th September at 8AM (11:00PM Malaysian Time). With a week away, the folks at Android Police has managed to get a glimpse of the official packaging which confirms its rumoured Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P product names.
LG Nexus 5X
Just like the Nexus 5, the new 5X is also made by LG and it sports a slightly larger 5.2″ display. The actual specs are yet to be confirmed but it is likely to feature a Quad HD display and under the hood it could be running on a Snapdragon 808 processor with 3GB of RAM.
From the leaks so far, it would be coming with a rear mounted fingerprint scanner and a possible 13MP/16MP camera that’s assisted with Laser Auto Focus. With Android M supporting USB Type C with fast charge, it is safe to assume that the Nexus 5X will come with it as well.
Huawei Nexus 6P
The Nexus 6P is their phablet option and it is the first Nexus device that’s coming from Huawei. The alleged specs so far points to a 5.7″ Quad HD display, Snapdragon 810 Octa-Core processor with storage options that goes up to 128GB. Like the Nexus 5X, it also gets a fingerprint scanner and a USB Type C connector. For better audio playback, the Nexus 6P is said to come with front stereo speakers as well.
