Pre-orders for Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6 rumored to begin on October 13th?

Pre-orders for Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6 rumored to begin on October 13th?
If a report published on Monday is correct, two weeks will elapse from the time that the new Nexus branded handsets are introduced and when they will be available for pre-orders. With the LG produced Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6 both expected to be unveiled on September 29th, there is speculation that they both will be available for pre-orders on October 13th.

The Nexus 5X is expected to come with a 5.2-inch, 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution screen. The Snapdragon 808 SoC drives the handset with a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU, and the Adreno 418 GPU. The 13MP rear-facing camera comes with OIS, and 3GB of RAM is inside. Android 6.0 Marshmallow will be pre-installed.

The Huawei Nexus 6 is believed to carry a 5.5-inch or 5.7-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Snapdragon 810 SoC is under the hood, with an octa-core 2.0GHz CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of internal storage. A 3500mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed.

For LG, this will be its third stock Android Nexus phone, having already produced the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5. For Huawei, this is the manufacturer's first shot at rolling a Nexus handset off of the assembly line. As for the October 13th pre-order date, we suggest taking it with a grain of salt. While pre-orders for the Nexus 6 started two weeks following the introduction of the phone, that doesn't necessarily mean that we will see this timeline repeat for the new Nexus models.

Nexus 5X doesn't need a QHD. A FHD is enough for 5.2 inch display.

I commend LG for making a 5.2" QHD display smart phone. Besides this is the first year that the Nexus line has had 2 choices for a Nexus smart phone. You want a FHD display instead with close to stock Android, then there is a number of devices already on the market that will give you that. Look at the new Moto X, or X play, or a number of Sony devices including the new Z5 all offer FHD options.

I will stick with my nexus 6. I have a nexus 5 used only 11 months mint condition also.. I wish Google would have kept the dual speaker design and size of the nexus 6, and for those that want small the nexus 5 would be available. Personally I would like to see continuity in the nexus design, and feel that the nexus 6 design should have been continued and expanded going forward.

Still using a G2 from a couple years ago. Sure wish I could get nexus-like updates. It would be the perfect phone. Still on kitkat here in Canada

I'm with you -- G2 was the best phone of it's generation. This year's lineup is full of, not so much disappointment, but nothing spectacular. Samsung -- I was never a fan or how hard it was to modify LG -- their G4 was good, but all of the specs fell short of the Samsung those were the big 2. Now I'm looking elsewhere since my contract comes up in a month. I'm hoping for a nice big Nexus, but now the 6 might only be 5.5? with the 808? I'm almost tempted to sit on my phone for another year for the real one I want to come around Lollipop here though
