Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X to be available only online, prices could start at $499 and $379, respectively
Tomorrow, September 29, should be a big day for Google, as the company is seemingly getting ready to announce two new Nexus smartphones, both running Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box: the Nexus 5X (manufactured by LG), and the Nexus 6P (made by Huawei).

Not long ago, we heard that prices for the Nexus 5X could start at $399.99 - which would be great, considering all the advanced features that the handset is expected to pack. But the new smartphone might be even cheaper: according to Android Police, an unlocked Nexus 5X 16 GB should cost $379.99, while the 32 GB variant should be a bit more expensive. Reportedly, Google will take pre-orders for the Nexus 5X starting tomorrow in the US, UK, Ireland, Japan, and South Korea. Apparently, the handset will be offered in three color versions: Carbon, Quartz, and Ice Blue.

As for the Nexus 6P, Android Police has it that prices for it could start at $499 (32 GB version), with pre-orders also expected to be available as soon as tomorrow. Interestingly, it's said that both the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P should be sold only online. If that's true, customers won't be able to find them in carrier stores.

As a reminder, the Nexus 5X will likely sport a 5.2-inch 1080p (or Quad HD) display, being powered by a Snapdragon 808 processor, while the Nexus 6P should feature a 5.7-inch Quad HD screen and a Snapdragon 810 processor. Both smartphones seemingly have fingerprint scanners on the back. Are you excited about any of the two upcoming Nexus handsets?

I think I am too, even though I do prefer the screen size of the 5X. I must say, after seeing the camera hump on the 6P from the different angle, it doesn't seem nearly as bad. In fact, it looks pretty cool to me.

Ordinary, This is the 14th time that you have made a false accusation about me. People are upvoting my comments because they recognize you as an annoying troll that continues to stalk me. However, everytime you do this, you make yourself look like a complete moron.

Pretty sure no one (besides yourself) is upvoting you. Most people here knows who you really here anyways and you trying to gain some credibility is beyond funny but keep going and make me laugh more.

LOL so the only reason I'm getting more upvotes is because you think I have multiple accounts? It has nothing to do with you being an annoying fool who constantly creates conversations completely unrelated to the subject at hand?

Because I know* fixed that for you "who constantly creates conversations completely unrelated to the subject" Thats you actually:http://i.imgur.com/7sWRVmU.png You really need to get the stress out, I mean keeping 50 accounts at once is a tough job.

YuP! That was me! My mission was to show people that they would uprank ANYTHING making fun of Apple. However, I learned my lesson and that's that. But what's wrong is wrong. With that said, you need to stop falsely accusing me of multiple accounts.

@Ordinary don't take this guy (SamsungPhanboy) too seriously because he is just an amature with 10 different accounts. He spends most of his day by logging into all of his accounts and liking his own comments. You can simply ignore this kid.

@AnTuTu I really do NOT have multiple accounts. Not a kid either. However, you two are acting like children, thinking it is more important to discuss upvotes other than the content itself.

It lacks OIS, which is weird since Huawei P8 and LG G4 has it.

In reality there is no bump or hump .. it is just style ..

6P looks like the better deal. I wish the 5X had 64GB option.

I agree. I don't know why they would even bother with 16GB. That doesn't even hold the music I would put on the phone, let alone growing room for photos and videos.

I'll settle for 32 if that's the highest option, but even so I'd like at least 64. I hope they keep the pricing-scheme the same and charge $50 per memory bump instead of $100... like SOME OTHER COMPANIES do...

If you allude to Apple, even them are making difference between 16 and 32 GB $50. See new iPods. So if anything, Google can make it even less, about $30 most likely.

lack of force touch would make these phones obsolete in six months

It's an iCrack - I wouldn't recommend that to non-certain-company fans.

Lmao. +1 Force touch seems like such a gimmick right now. They need some serious development before it can be considered a coveted feature.

if samsung doesn't make a force-touch capable phone in six months then it's gimmick

loool! force touch is the most useless Apple innovation to date... just keep pressed for a little more (a feature that is already present in Android, e.g. with toggles that perform two different action with a tap and a "prolonged tap") and you have the same behaviour without any special and complicated hardware.

To be fair to Apple (I know that's not a popular idea) the iPhone has always supported long-press too. 3D Touch (literally) adds a new dimension to it. Useless right now? Yes. Useless in six months? Probably. Useless in two years? Probably not.
