The Nexus 6P or the Nexus 5X?
San Francisco: Internet giant Google’s newly-appointed India-born chief executive Sundar Pichai took to the stage on Tuesday to launch two new smartphones, streaming gadgets and a new Android operating system (OS) to compete with rivals in the mobility space, says IANS. OpenSignal points out that the specs sheets for both devices claim that they’re capable of connecting to LTE category 6 networks, which means they can deliver peak speeds of 300Mbps.
The first Nexus device has been released in January 2010, being a phone that has been manufactured by HTC.
But the new smartphones will barely get any time in the limelight because Google’s software roll out for older Nexus devices begins pretty early this time.
Now during a recent AMA the Nexus Team said that the plan was to double down on USB Type C with fast charging and to keep the design thin, is that fair compromise? But it turns out that the best way to choose between Google’s new Nexus phones is by looking at the prices, and figuring out how much you’re willing to spend. “Media tablet sales remain stagnant, except at the extreme low end where as little as $50 will get you a useable device”, he said. The Nexus 6P is available in three variants: 32GB – $499, 64GB – $549and 128GB – $649.
The Nexus 5X is collaborated with LG and will come in a 5.2-inch display packed with a compact and light package. It is powered by a 64-bit 1.8 GHz Hexa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 Processor with 2GB of RAM. The 5X is slightly bigger than its successor and has a 5.2 inch display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels.
Which all devices will be updated? For selfies, it comes with a 5 Megapixel front camera. The final version of the mobile OS will be showcased together with the newest Nexus phones, the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P.
Both new phones are equipped with a 12.3-megapixel camera that shoots 4K video as well. For owners in the United States, Imprint will also work with Android Pay for quick and easy purchases.
LG and Google have announced their latest addition to the Nexus lineup.
The Nexus 5X will be available October 2015 starting from US$379.
According to Fox News, the Doze feature will help devices disable background processes when in idle to increase battery life substantially.
