Google has announced that it's new Nexus 5P and Nexus 5X handsets are now available in India.
The two devices run Google's latest mobile operating system, Android Marshmallow. The 5.7-inch Nexus 6P was built by Huawei, with the smaller 5.2-inch Nexus 5X being built by LG.
Apart from the 5.7-inch display, the Nexus 6P features a 12 MP camera and features a 2 GHz octa-core processor coupled with a pretty hefty 3 GB of RAM. The 32-GB version of the device will be on sale in India for Rs. 39,999, with the 64-GB version costing a little more at Rs. 42,999.
The smaller Nexus 5X is the first 5-inch device to have the Nexus name for two years, and includes a 1080p display, a 1.8 GHz hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, and a still-very-nice 2 GB of RAM. It also comes in two variants, with the 16-GB version costing Rs. 31,990, and the 32-GB model selling for Rs. 35,990.
Apart from the latest version of Android, both of the devices feature fingerprint sensors along with a USB-C port for charging and data transfer. This port is rather new and is only offered on a few devices right now, offering a much faster transfer speed compared with the older micro-USB standard that was used by most Android smartphones.
Google officially took the wraps off the two smartphones around two weeks ago, and they have since become available on websites like Amazon. They are also, of course, on offer through the Google website and through brick-and-mortar stores like Croma.
The new devices are this year's Nexus offerings, and while that might sound obvious, there has been much speculation over the past year or so that Google would end the Nexus program in favor of another Android smartphone hardware program. Any official announcement related to a Nexus replacement has yet to be made.
