We are less than a week away from Google's September 29 event where the company is expected to reveal the new Nexus hardware. Many of the details about specifications and design of the upcoming Nexus smartphones - claimed to be manufactured by LG and Huawei - have been leaked. However, there was a lot of confusion around the naming of both the handsets until now.
Android Police has obtained the retail box images of both the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. The styling of the boxes are different from previous years as the new retail boxes in the leaked images sport a large "X" for Nexus 5X and "P" for Nexus 6P. While the Nexus 5X retail box sports a rectangular design, the Nexus 6P comes with rounded edges. The leaked images further confirm that both the handsets would come in 32GB storage options. Material Design-styled wallpapers can also be seen on the retail boxes of both the new Nexus smartphones. It's worth pointing out that the front of both the retail boxes has no OEM logo placement.
Google over the weekend started sending invites for an event on September 29 in San Francisco, and the search engine giant is expected to launch its latest Nexus smartphones apart from a new Chromecast dongle.
We already know that both LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P would be running Google's latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box for which the handsets will be the platform lead devices. They will also sport fingerprint sensors and USB Type-C ports, both features that are supported natively in the upcoming Android release.
Based on past leaks and rumours, the LG Nexus 5X is said to feature a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display; a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor; 3GB of RAM; Adreno 418 GPU; a 12.3-megapixel sensor; a 5-megapixel front camera, and a 2700mAh battery.
As for the larger Huawei Nexus 6P, it is tipped to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 SoC. A 5.7-inch QHD display and front-facing speakers are also tipped, apart from a 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera.
