Google has launched two new flagship smartphones, the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, to demonstrate what its new version of Android 'Marshmallow' can do.
The two new handsets feature fingerprint scanners, the new Nexus camera and Google’s improved personal assistant 'Now on Tap'.
The LG Nexus 5X features a 5.2in 1080p screen with a density of 423 pixels per inch (ppi), protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The smartphone features the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor as the LG G4, 2GB of RAM and the choice of either 16 or 32GB of storage within a relatively compact frame.
The 16GB Nexus 5X will cost £339 – £379 for 32GB of storage – and replaces the now two-year-old Nexus 5. It will be available on 16 October in the UK.
The Nexus 6P features a 5.7in 2K AMOLED screen with a pixel density of 518ppi, which is protected by Gorilla Glass 4. The Huawei smartphone features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octo-core processor, 3GB of RAM and a choice of 32, 64 or 128GB of storage in an aluminium unibody shell available in silver, black and white.
The Nexus 6P will be available from 26 October costing £449 for 32GB of storage, £499 for 64GB, and £579 for 128GB in the UK.
