From your TV, to your laptop, to your phone, Google has always been out to help you stay connected, entertained, and informed across all your devices. Following on the heels of their Google Pixel C hybrid laptop release, Google is also introducing two new ways to do just that: the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P phones. The Nexus 6P is the company's first all-metal aluminum encased phone, which was built in collaboration with Huawaii, featuring a 5.7-inch AMOLED 518 ppi display, a 12.3MP camera with a f/2 lens, and 4K video capture. The 6P also arrives with a 8MP front-facing camera, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with Adreno 430 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and the Nexus Imprint fingerprint scanner. The Nexus 5X also gets an update with a hand from LG, boasting a 5.2" 423 ppi 1080p display, a 12.3 MP camera with f/2 lens, 4K video capture, and a 5MP front-facing camera. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with Adreno 418 GPU and 2GB of RAM are tucked inside the 5X, while both devices now feature USB-C ports for faster charging and run the latest Android Marshmallow OS. Both are available for pre-order now in three colorway options.
