Google's upcoming Nexus smartphone and phablet will officially be named "Nexus 5X" and "Nexus 6P". Leaked images of the retail for both devices have appeared online with the new names in tow.
Apple is set to release its latest flagship smartphone and phablet on Sept. 25 when millions of its most loyal fans will either lineup at the company's retail stores or receive their iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus on their doorstep. The handsets sport new 3D Touch displays, faster A9 processor, and upgraded 12-megapixel rear cameras. The pair are also the first devices to ship with iOS 9, which was recently released for previous generation iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.
Android fans are about to see what Google has in store for them when the company holds a press event on Sept. 29. Google is widely expected to announce a 5.2-inch smartphone built by LG and 5.7-inch phablet manufactured by Huawei. Like Apple's iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, Google's flagship devices will be the first to ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
We've been covering Google's next-generation Nexus' and most recently reported that the handsets were tipped to be called the "Nexus 5X" and "Nexus 6P".
Google will in fact officially name its upcoming Nexus smartphones the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. The information comes courtesy of leaked images of the smartphone and phablet's official retail packaging.
The Nexus 5X's packaging shows a rectangular white box with the smartphone's name, storage capacity, and stylized "X" cutout that appears to be taken from new wallpaper included with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The Nexus 6P's retail packaging is virtually identical, although more round, with a "P" cutout emblazoned on the box.
Google is expected to offer the LG Nexus 5X and Huawei Nexus 6P in both 32GB and 64GB internal storage options. The smartphone and phablet will be sold unlocked through the Google Play Store, in addition to all four major U.S. carriers.
