You might have heard by now that Google is expected to launch two new Nexus smartphones at its event tomorrow, one made by LG and the other by Huawei, called Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P respectively. Almost everything about these handsets has been leaked over the past few weeks and today even the prices have been leaked aside from the list of launch markets where the handsets will be sold in the first round of availability.
The Nexus 5X is said to start at $379.99 possibly for the base 16GB model, expect a slight price premium for the 32GB model. It will be available in Carbon, Ice Blue and Quartz colors only through Google’s online store in the U.S., UK, Korea, Japan and Ireland. Canada is mysteriously off the list.
Huawei is making the high-end Nexus smartphone this time around, its Nexus 6P is said to cost $499.99 for the 32GB base model with price premiums for the 64GB and 128GB models.
It will also be available for purchase online only in the U.S., UK, Ireland, Canada and Japan, the gold color option will be exclusive to Japan. Others will get the Aluminum, Frost and Graphite options.
Pre-orders for both smartphones are rumored to open starting tomorrow, presumably immediately after Google unveils both devices officially at the event that it has scheduled for tomorrow.
