After a whirlwind event, the dust has now settled on Google‘s latest announcements. From the official release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, to hardware launches in the first tablet designed end-to-end by Google, the Pixel C, and Google‘s launch of two Nexus devices, the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.
Without a doubt, the latter two devices will of the biggest interest to prospective consumers. Now that the excitement is over, let us take a look at the detailed spec list of these two smartphones.
Nexus 5X Specs
First off, the Nexus 5X is the cheaper of the two devices, starting at $379. That means you get a top notch device (if not ground-breaking) for the price of a mid-tier phone.

Nexus 6P Specs
The Nexus 6P is Google‘s phablet entry this year, taking the reign from last year‘s Nexus 6. Just like last year, the new phablet has top of line specs, possibly the last flagship device that will carry the Snapdragon 810 chip. We expect all flagships released next year to include the new, beefed up Snapdragon 820, and we can‘t think of a better device for the 810‘s swansong.
