Google Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P names seemingly confirmed by these leaked retail boxes

Google Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P names seemingly confirmed by these leaked retail boxes
Next week, Google will likely unveil not one, but two new Nexus smartphones manufactured by different companies: LG and Huawei. The new LG-made Nexus is expected to sport a 5.2-inch display, while the one made by Huawei should have a 5.7-inch screen.

Not long ago, we heard that the upcoming LG Nexus could be called Nexus 5X, while the Huawei one might be released as the Nexus 6P. Well, today we can take a look at two photos that allegedly show the retail boxes of both new devices. Revealed by Android Police (a reliable source), the images seem to confirm the fact that Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are, indeed, the names of Google's next generation smartphones. The retail boxes also show that both the 5X and 6P will have 32 GB variants - and we expect them to have 64 GB versions, too. In fact, rumors suggest that 128 GB variants will also exist, but that remains to be confirmed.

Although they differ when it comes to size and design, the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P seem to have plenty of common features, including Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) displays, fingerprint scanners, and 13 MP rear cameras. The processors powering the two handsets should be different, though: an octa-core Snapdragon 810 for the Huawei Nexus 6P, and a six-core Snapdragon 808 for the LG Nexus 5X.

Both new Nexus handsets are probably going to be officially announced on September 29. Who's waiting for them?

Not a fan of that naming scheme. It makes no sense. They don't need the X or the P unless it's meaningful.

I think it's important actually. You wouldn't buy something called the feces phone or the vomit phone right? Lol

Compare feces with a one letter. Smart.

Same s**t pretty much. If I was the head of Sony pictures and after Spider-Man 1, 2, 3. My producer called it Spider-man P or Spider-Man X instead of just Spider-Man, I would fire him on the spot. The only time a letter was used for a sequel was Friday the 13th X: Jason in space. And I don't need to explain how s**tty that naming scheme was. Google should avoid this if they still have time. But judging by the boxes, they don't. Lol

A rose by any other name smells just as sweet. Call the Note 5 the Vomit Phone X & I guarantee you it will still be in my hands.

It makes more sense than using the same names and distinguishing them by stating "the old/new one" or the year. Motorola should learn the naming schemes from Google. Apple stopped the confusion with their iPads. Most likely, "X" was taken from the letter in the Nexus name, and I was taken from Huawei's P series.

I thought Apple was the first one to use "the old/new one" naming scheme as they did with the "new iPad" a few years back. IIRC we never saw the new/old or year naming scheme until that.

I am fine with the year or 2nd gen or 3rd gen. Better than making up letters for no rhyme or reason. They already did it successfully with the Nexus 7 and that's probably their most popular tablet ever. I wouldn't change. If it was called the Nexus 7g or Nexus 7t that would have been just as lame as this. Nexus 7 FHD or Nexus 7 2nd gen or Nexus 7 2013 was fine. I actually like FHD, it works great.

Well I guess the P is for the plus I have no idea about the X
