Google Reveals The Names Of The New Nexus Phones

By Pratyusha

The new Nexus phones have been kicking up a buzz for quite some time now and their names have finally been revealed. According to a Droid Life report, the latest Nexus phones will see a tweak made to their naming conventions. The smaller handset made by LG will be called the Nexus 5X while the larger one by Huawei will be called Nexus 6P

While there is no confirming report on why these particular names have been chosen, one can take a guess as to the reasons behind it. The LG made phone, rumored to have a 5.2 in display, is slightly larger than the older version of Nexus 5; hence the Nexus 5XL - shortened to Nexus 5X. The Huawei device on the other hand is smaller than the Nexus 6. While the Nexus 6 was a grand 5.96 inches, the new tablet is merely 5.7 inches, therefore Nexus 6P, a shorter vesion of the Nexus 6 pint sized.

Both Nexus devices should be released with Android 6.0 Marshmallow along with natively supported fingerprint sensor. The reports so far say that the Nexus 5 will have a 1080p display with a Snapdragon 808 chip, 3GB RAM, a 2,700mAh battery, 16-megapixel back camera, and USB Type-C connector. The Nexus 6P is rumored to have a Quad HD display with a Snapdragon 820 chip, a 21-megapixel camera, and USB Type-C.

While this is only speculation, Google will announce specifications officially on 29th September.
