Google’s Upcoming ‘Nexus 5X’ And ‘Nexus 6P’ Leaked [PICS]

Google is set to unveil its new Nexus smartphones manufactured by LG and Huawei in San Francisco next week and it looks like we already know what they’ll be called, and also have a glimpse at what they’ll look like, thanks to today’s leaked pics of the alleged devices. According to AndroidPolice, they have obtained exclusive images of the retail packaging for both phones i.e the LG Nexus 5X (above) and the Huawei Nexus 6P (below) from reliable sources, just ahead of their official release.

The 5X uses a rectangular box that looks like it has a cardboard accent sleeve. Same for the 6P, though the corners on the box look rounded. Both packages use a stylized graphic or cutout of their “X” and “P” designations with what looks like a new Android stock wallpaper peeking. The source notes however that it’s quite similar but not identical to previous satellite photos used as wallpaper for Android 5.0 and higher.

    Both ugly as sin

  • Totally agree….. and read somewhere the fingerprint scanner is on the back of the phone ??? really ? Fail…

    Considering the Nexus phones don’t really have any front-facing buttons, the back is a pretty practical location for it. It looks like the circle on the back, below the camera, is the finger print sensor. The way the average person holds their phone it would seem like a pretty comfortable position to read the fingerprint, in comparison to using the iPhone’s home button.

    I agree. And I think these phone’s look fine. The larger one even seems kind of innovative in terms of design. They seem to have embraced the rear protrusion of the camera and made a ridge that will allow your phone to sit on a slight angle while placed on a desk or similar flat surface. I remember looking at the antenna lines on my iphone 6 and thinking they were ghastly (they kind of are actually, but thanks to cases…). Anyway, so much of how we perceive these products is associated with brand. I’ve said it before, but if an Android phone could just come out with a killer, “it just works” camera system I’d leave iOS and Apple in a heartbeat. I loved a lot about my Nexus 5, so snappy and integrated with Google, but at the end of the day the camera was a deal breaker. Here’s hoping they change that. I’m an advocate of great tech, I don’t care who makes it.

    I have an iphone 6, but you know what “fail” is? Fail is having a home button. It takes up so much space and makes the whole device way larger than it needs to be. Without it you can have the same screen real estate in a much smaller form factor. It’s no surprise iphone 7 rumors are point to the removal of said button. If Apple doesn’t find a way to integrate the finger print scanner into the screen, it’s logical they’ll put it on the back.

    I don’t agree, I like the home button, and one of the reasons I prefer an iPhone is the home button!

    the fingerprint scanner isn’t used as often as a home button so it can go on the back or side power button like Sony. On a new Android phone the Home, Back and Switcher buttons are under the front glass allowing a much smaller bezel than iPhone
