Nexus 5X strays away from the flashyexquisite red of its LG-made predecessor, introducing a more nuanced pastel color instead. With a renewed emphasis on design, Google also partnered with Huawei for an all-metal Nexus 6P, which comes in Aluminium, Graphite, and Frost colors, as well as a golden version, which, however, will only be hitting Japan for now.
As a reminder, the 5X comes with a 5.2" 1080p display, Snapdragon 808 silicon, 2 GB of RAM, and a new 12.3 MP camera on the back that offers large, 1.55 micron pixels to rake in more light.
The phone is built from polycarbonate, while the Nexus 6P, on the other hand, offers an "aeronautic-grade" aluminum chassis, Snapdragon 810, 5.7"WQHD Super AMOLED display, and the same unique 12.3 MP camera. We ran a quick poll yesterday which color would you pick, and the Nexus 5X respondents went overwhelmingly for the Carbon Black version, with the new Ice Blue a close second. The metal 6P is most preferred in stock aluminum color, though Graphite almost matched it in popularity, too.
