Google's Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X: Pricing and availability

Google launched its new Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X smartphones at its press event in San Francisco today. While we just compared both phones in terms of technical specifications as well as their abilities to compete in premium and mid-range markets, here's a detailed note on Huawei's Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X's pricing and availability dates.

Like we mentioned before, Nexus 6P will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage variants. All three variants are priced differently and your choice of colour won't impact the prices. Just so you know, Nexus 6P will sell in Aluminium (Silver), Graphite (Black), and Frost (White) colours.

If you buy the phablet from Google store where it will be available for pre-orders starting today, you'll need to pay £449 for the 32GB variant, £499 for 64GB and £579 for the 128GB variant.

Either Google or Huawei have not announced the delivery dates yet.

You can also buy Nexus 5X by paying £379 for the 16GB variant and £429 for the 32GB variant on Google Store.

Apart from Google store, you can also buy Nexus 6P or Nexus 5S from EE, O2, John Lewis and Carphone Warehouse. We will let you know as soon as we know more about their pricing details and 4G bundles.

EE will be offering both phones on pre-order on its 4GEE network from October 9. Once you buy any of these gadgets from EE's store, the network operator will offer Wi-Fi calling through a software update.

Both phones will also be available on O2's Refresh tariff. This way, you will be able to, if you are an existing O2 customer, replace your old handset by only paying the remaining value on your existing contract. Also, if you own a Nexus 6, you can earn £160 by recyling your phone through O2 Recycle programme and use that amount to buy any of the new Nexus phones.

Weighing at 178g, Nexus 6P is a 5.7 inch phone featuring a WQHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels or an amazing 518ppi. Its premium features include a Snapdragon 810 chip, a 3,450 mAh battery and a maximum storage of 128GB.

Nexus 5X is a 5.2 inch phone with a Full HD display, a Snapdragon 808 processor, a 2,700 mAh battery and 12.3MP and 5MP cameras.

    Nexus 6P is not available on the John Lewis website, but the 5X is... that's odd.
