Google is expected to have plenty of news to share with the public at it’s special event scheduled for September 29th. But perhaps the two most anticipated products that are set to be revealed next week are two new flagship Nexus smartphones: the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P.
A leaked Amazon product page have given us the clearest look at the specs for the smaller of the two smartphones: the LG-produced Nexus 5X. The product page confirms a 5.2-inch 1080p display, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor (which is curiously paired with just 2GB of RAM). The entry-level Nexus 5X (LG-H791) only features 16GB of RAM, but given the expected $399 price tag of the device, it’s a lot easier to swallow compared to 16GB on the $649 base iPhone 6S.
Other features include a 12.3MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and a 2700 mAh battery that will reportedly be good for up to 17 hours of 3G talk time or 300 hours on standby.
But that’s not the only Nexus news that leaked this week. Renders courtesy of Android Police showing both the front and back of the larger 5.7-inch Nexus 6P have also made they way to the web. This is our first look at the front of the Snapdragon 810-powered smartphone, which is really nothing home to write about. We can see the front-facing speakers, the 2560x1440 display, and the front-facing camera — that’s about it. And we also see Android 6.0 Marshmallow in all its glory, along with Google’s updated logo an iconography.
The back of the Huawei-designed device just confirms what previous leaked images showed, including the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and camera “hump” near the top of the device which house the rear-facing camera and LED flash.
When the Nexus 6P launches, it is expected to be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB (a first for a Nexus device) varieties. And both the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will feature USB-C connectors for data transfers and charging.
