Google is getting ready to launch its new smartphones tomorrow, the Huawei made Nexus 6P and the LG made Nexus 5X, but we already know pretty much all there is to know. For example, the design of both handsets reveals probably the best looking Nexus smartphones so far, and one that are well spec?d for their price points.Speaking of price, the cost of the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X has been leaked today, showing the Huawei built flagship to cost $499 and the LG manufactured handset $379. Both handsets will represent great value for money then, although they will only be available to purchase online. The Nexus 6P will be a high end flagship competing smartphone with a 5.7-inch Quad HD screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 3450mAh battery, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, USB Type-C, a fingerprint scanner, and 32GB of native storage. Pretty much as spec'd out as it gets. The Nexus 5X comes with interesting specs, it is clear at this point that the 5X will be powered by Qualcomm's six core Snapdragon 808, which is a step down from the more powerful (but overheating) Snapdragon 810. There should be no major issues though in terms of raw power as this is the same chipset that LG uses for its G4 flagship. Other specs include 2GB of RAM, a 1080p Full HD screen, and a 13 megapixel rear camera, and possibly a fingerprint scanner. That means the LG Nexus 5X is going to be a well spec'd smartphone and we know that it will be the mid-range offering.
