Google Nexus Smartphones from Huawei and LG Arrive

September 30, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Google’s latest Nexus offsprings are finally here, giving us the fully furnished and most stable experience of their Android Marshmallow OS.

As expected, they have brought in two new devices; the bigger Huawei Nexus 6P smartphone, and the compact LG Nexus 5X smartphone.

There’s nothing much that separates the two in terms of the running software. After all, both of them have got the latest Android Marshmallow with all its newbie features like Google Now on Tap. So let’s go through the remaining stuffs that define the new Nexus smartphones.


For some reason, Google opted to present their new smartphones as a successor within the series, rather than a successor to the series.

But that hasn’t restrained the manufacturers from anything; they have gone deep down to modify the new devices right from the roots. And Huawei’s Nexus edition is the perfect example.

There aren’t any patches of a debutant flaw in this; Nexus 6P comes absolutely robustly packed in both hardware terms and in design builds.

Being the premium one, Nexus 6P gets to enjoy many perks over its smaller counterpart like a bigger 5.7-inch display, QHD resolution, dual speakers, and AMOLED display.

Running Snapdragon 810 SoC, Nexus 6P is loaded with a Quad-core 1.55 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A57. All of these get juiced by a 3450mAh battery.

It’s powered by a RAM of 3GB, but we can see a better storage option now with the availability of 128GB edition along with 32 and 64 GB variants.

The storage hike is available only with the bigger smartphone, and not with the compact one from LG. Instead, they have opted to be happy with the 16GB and 32 GB space offering.

But that’s good considering that Nexus 5X is a budget edition, for which they have scaled down many things when weighed up with Nexus 6P including a 2700 mAh, and a 5.2-inch Full HD display

The processor you get here is a Quad core 1.44 GHz Cortex-A53 & dual-core 1.82 GHz Cortex-A57, which comes mounted on a Snapdragon 808 chipset.

What’s highlighted in the hardware front of both devices is its camera, with each featuring a 12MP sensor on its rear. What keeps the gap between the two devices is the front camera, which is of 8MP in Nexus 6P and of 5 MP in Nexus 5X.

Following the like of Apple, Google has decided to have a major jump in the camera space, the result of which now offers 4K video capturing and many other lifts in the Nexus devices.


The bottom-line is that both Huawei and LG have brought out the best of rear camera you could ever catch on a Nexus device.

The Huawei Nexus 6P arrives at a price of $499, and the LG Nexus arrives at a price of $379. Both the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X will be arriving to the markets during the last weeks of October, and the pre-order button has already been made available for the consumers to hit.
