Ahead of Google’s September 29 event in San Francisco where it may launch two new phones - Nexus 5X from LG and Nexus 6P made by Huawei - Android Police has got us a “sneak peak” into the devices.
The blog, that follows all things Android, has published the images of retail box graphics that confirm the brand names of the upcoming devices.
The photographs show Google is using a very modern box art for both the phones with background images that are very similar to default wallpapers from Android Marshmallow. The boxes show small glyphs on the top left that resemble both the LG and Huawei devices that were leaked over the last couple of months.
According to an earlier report by Android Police, citing a “reliable source,” LG’s upcoming Nexus 5X will sport a Snapdragon 808 processor, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, 3 GB of RAM, a 2700 mAh battery, support for USB-C, a 12.3-megapixel main camera sensor, and a 5-megapixel front camera.
Details on the Huawei Nexus 6P have been more scarce, with one leak by Evan Blass suggesting the phone will have a 5.7-inch QHD display with a “metal body”, along with a Snapdragon 820 system-on-a-chip, a fingerprint reader, and a ship timeline for Q4.
According to most recent reports, the higher-end Huawei Nexus is going to be the first Nexus to offer 128 GB capacity.
