Google launches Nexus 5X, 6P in India

Google has launched its new Nexus phones - Nexus 5X and 6P in India.

The Nexus 5X will be available at Rs 31,990 and Rs 35,990 for the 16GB and 32GB variants, respectively. Prebooking will start today and the phone will be available starting October 21. The 16GB version will be available online exclusively on Amazon.

The Nexus 6P is priced at Rs 39,999 and Rs 42,999 for the 32GB and 64GB versions, respectively. Prebooking starts today with wider availability commencing later. The phone will be available online exclusively on Flipkart.

Both phones come with freebies for users who prebook.

The US price of the Nexus 5X is $379 (approximately Rs 25,000) while the Nexus 6P starts at $499 (Rs 32,800 approximately). The individual listing pages for the phones, however, just feature a 'coming soon' tag and do not offer any other information on pricing. It's possible these prices may not be the final ones but do give a hint.

The all-new Nexus 6P has a 5.7-inch AMOLED display with QHD (1440x2560p) resolution and comes with the integrated Nexus Imprint fingerprint sensor on the back. The smartphone is reportedly powered by Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB RAM and comes in three storage variants: 32, 64 and 128GB; there is no support for storage expansion.

The smartphone has a 12.3MP rear camera (1.55micron sensor which captures more light, thus delivering better lowlight photos) that supports 4K recording and can capture videos at 240 frames per second; it is backed by a dual-LED flash. On the front is an 8MP camera, the highest resolution for selfie camera for a Nexus smartphone yet. The smartphone features an all-metal, 7.33mm thick body in white, grey and aluminium finishes, packs a 3,450mAh battery, and comes with front-facing stereo speakers. Nexus 5X has a 5.2-inch screen with relatively lower Full HD (1080x1920p) resolution and runs on the 64-bit Snapdragon 808 processor with 2GB RAM. The storage capacities of the smartphone are 16GB and 32GB, with no microSD card support.

The 12.3MP camera of Nexus 5X also has a 1.55micron sensor and is backed by a laser autofocus for faster capturing; it can shoot videos in high-resolution 4K videos as well 120fps videos. Google said the smartphone will come with a Smart Burst feature that captures shots at 30fps, and can be used to create GIF images. Available in black, white and blue colours, the smartphone has a 2,700mAh battery.

Both smartphones sport the reversible Type C USB and supports fast-charging; the Nexus 6P charges twice as fast as iPhone 6S Plus, Google said. Android Marshmallow will be preloaded on both Nexus models.

Talking about the fingerprint sensor, Google said it will be built right into Android; named Nexus Imprint, it can recognize fingerprints in less than 600 milliseconds. This means that it can not only unlock the handset, but also works with other apps; it also authenticates app downloads in Play Store and payments in Android Pay
