As reported by The Verge, during the Google Nexus event, the Nexus 6P and 5X were officially unveiled.
Google uses its Nexus smartphone range – manufactured by a revolving lineup of Android partners – to show off its latest mobile software.
The Pixel C tablet will be available before the year-end holidays starting at US$499.
Google has finally announced its worst kept secret of September – the launch of two new Nexus smartphones, that arrive running the company’s new Marshmallow operating system.
The Nexus 6P is the higher end Nexus handset, toting a Snapdragon 810 chip, 3GBs of RAM, large 3450mAh battery, a 5.7-inch 2560×1440 display and an 8MP front facing camera. Both the smartphones run on Android’s latest OS Marshmallow.
Google Now on Tap has been voted as the best feature on Android Marshmallow and with it people just have to press the home button on their device when they are within an app and the content on the screen will be searched through.

Google also said the new version of Android, called Marshmallow, will roll out to existing Nexus customers from next week. One of them, the Nexus 5X, was made in partnership with South Korea-based LG Electronics. It also presents the one-touch fingerprint security located at the back of the device, as well as the fast-charing reversible USB type-C, which some say will become the standard in devices over the next few years.
Burke explained: “Nexus 5X has a quantized density of 420 dpi, which falls in between the xhdpi and xxhdpi primary density buckets”. After the launch of Android M’s native fingerprint API support, Google has incorporated fingerprint reader in the device successfully. Google boasts Pixel C’s keyboard, which attaches magnetically to the tablet with no docking mechanism. The new Nexus devices are already up for pre-order on the Play Store, with shipping scheduled for “late October” in the United States, as well as the UK.
We are eager to get it on our smartphones as soon as it gets available on other devices than Nexus.
