The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are Google’s worst kept secret, there have been so many leaks over the past few days that we more or less know everything there is to know about these new handsets. Today some important bits of information leaked out such as the price of both handsets, and the fact that both of them won’t feature Optical Image Stabilization and wireless charging, features that one can expect from a high-end Android flagship.
Perhaps one can forgive the LG-made Nexus 5X for not having these features, it’s not really positioned as the new flagship Nexus, but with its 5.2 inch HD display, Snapdragon 808 processor with 2GB RAM it’s going to be better than many mid-range handsets.
Huawei’s Nexus 6P, the flagship Nexus for this year, reportedly doesn’t feature Optical Image Stabilization and wireless charging, even though its base model is expected to cost $499.99. Despite that the handset is said to feature a 5.7 inch WQHD display, Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor with 3GB RAM, USB Type-C connector, dual front-facing speakers as well as a 3,450mAh battery.
It has also been reported today that Google is not going to sell both handsets through carrier stores instead the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P will only be sold online.
