With all the uproar of what people are expecting from the 2 brands that Nexus will be launching today, the Huawei Nexus 6P and LG Nexus 5X, it’s worth noting that this year’s launch comes a month earlier than expected, a nice way to end the month of September with pomp and color from Google. The striking thing about it is that Google has partnered with both LG and Huawei. Many are also looking forward to knowing when these devices will be made available in the market. But the big question is, ‘’what will people be expecting from inside of the sleek plastic and metal covers when the seals of these much awaited Nexus ware are unwrapped?’’ The Huawei Nexus 6P comes as the larger of the 2 devices, with its 5.7-inch and 2,560 x 1,440 dimensions. Its other features that are worth noting are its fingerprint sensor on its back, 810 Snapdragon processor, USB Type-C, dual speakers at its front and a spicy 3,450mAh battery. This one looks like the sharper-quality model with all its pluses but that does not mean that the Nexus 5X is any lesser. The Nexus 6P 32GB version is rumoured to be priced at $500. Coming to the LG Nexus 5X, its qualities are indeed not worth snubbing at all. Just like its predecessor, the LG Nexus 5, which still stands as one of Google’s best smartphones till date, this new device is worth giving a try due to its appealing properties both in hardware and software. These 2 devices are however rumoured to be almost similar in appearance. The LG Nexus 5X is reported to be 5.2 inches in size and has 1080p display. It also comes with the fingerprint processor just like the Nexus 6P, 13-megapixel camera, 808 Snapdragon processor, USB Type-C port and up to 3GB RAM. It also seems you’ll have an interesting variety of colours to pick from including white, black and a pretty new mint green. The price for the 16GB model is said to be tagged at $380 and $480 for the 32GB model. It’s sure to say that with this new model, Nexus 5X, just like its predecessor, Google hopes to recover from the days of the Google Nexus 6 disappointment whereby people did not opt for the device due its large bulky appearance as well as its not-so-good battery life and camera, which made it nothing closer to a hit in the phone market. The event will also focus on the upcoming launch of the Android Marshmallow whose official OS name details remain scanty. Just like the Nexus 5X and 6P, this device will also feature the fingerprint sensor. Rumours also have it that Google is having plans to introduce fresh Chromecast products, featuring one that will be about audio comprehensively. The public is also expecting to hear something concerning Android Wear since the company has immersed itself into lots of inventory activities on the same over the past one month including the Huawei watch and Motorola 360 generation 2.
