Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X: Makers Held ‘Ask Me Anything’ Session

The Nexus 6P smartphone, unveiled this week by Google, will be launched in the Middle East, according to an executive from manufacturer Huawei. It has a large 5.7-inch screen and a 12.3-megapixel camera. The Nexus 6p has not been tested yet, but the iPhone 6s Plus is now one of the fastest phones ever conceived. Both new handsets are the first to ship with the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow, otherwise known as Android M, which has built-in fingerprint sensor support developed in collaboration with FPC.


After installing Android Marshmallow users will no longer have to provide permission in bulk to apps, and they can instead opt to provide them selectively.

Nexus phones make a great choice if you like Google’s Android software unadorned by the frills, overlays and gimmicks that Samsung and other phone makers throw in to distinguish themselves in the Android world.

The list includes the upcoming Nexus 6P, which is a given since the device is made by Motorola and is one of the two aforementioned flagship devices for Google. Pichai said the Pixel C is “the first Android device focused on productivity”.

The LG Nexus 5X features a 5.2in 1080p screen with a density of 423 pixels per inch (ppi), which is protected by last year’s Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. It also gives more privacy options to users and comes with much wanted improving battery life feature. A few days ago, Google released the Pixel C tablet that runs on Android, and its name is Pixel C (the “C” letter is from convertible, meaning that it can be transformed into a laptop, by adding a keyboard). It comes equipped with a fingerprint sensor located on the back panel which can be used in unlocking the phone and making payments using the Android pay. Google has already started taking pre-orders for the phone in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Korea and Japan. The Nexus 6P is available in three variants: 32GB – $499, 64GB – $549and 128GB – $649.


In an event on Tuesday that was streamed and watched across the globe, it also introduced upgrades to two apps – Google Play Music and Google Photos.
