It’s now a known fact that Google will be unveiling two variants of the Nexus 2015 next week. According to a new report, the names of both the variants have finally been confirmed as “LG Nexus 5X” and “Huawei Nexus 6P.” This information has apparently been ferreted out from a leaked retail box of the upcoming devices.
According to reports, the Nexus 2015 release date has been pegged for Sept. 29 in San Francisco, where both LG and Huawei will be unveiling their respective devices. Until recently, the actual names of the two variants were unknown. However, now, Android Police has got hold of the retail packages pertaining to the Nexus handsets and thereby, revealing the names as Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.
Apart from confirming the names, the retail boxes hint at 32 GB internal storage space. Phone Arena said that 64 GB and 128 GB can also be expected as possible choices.
Speaking of Nexus 2015 specifications, the LG handset will apparently feature a 5.2-inch display, whereas the Huawei device will boast a humongous 5.7-inch screen. Both Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are believed to have a lot of features in common. However, the exterior design and size will vary depending on the signature design philosophies of LG and Huawei.
The common Nexus 2015 features include the killer Quad HD screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels, fingerprint sensor and a super cool 13-megapixel rear-facing camera unit. The upcoming Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will apparently run the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, straight out of the box.
When it comes to differences, Phone Arena said that the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will reportedly come powered by two different chipsets. While the Huawei Nexus 6P is reported to be powered by an octa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 810) chip, the LG Nexus 5X will settle for a hexa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 808) SoC.
