Google has launched Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X in India officially. Nexus 6P manufactured by Huawei would cost Rs. 39,999 for 32 GB and Rs. 42,999 for 64 GB variants. The LG manufactured Nexus 4X is available at a price of Rs. 31,900 for the 16 GB and Rs. 35,900 for the 32 GB models.
Both the smartphones would be available both online and through local retailers. While Nexus 5X is an Amazon exclusive, the Nexus 6P would be available only on Flipkart. Pre-order for both the devices have already started today and they are going on sale online from October 2. The smartphones would be available with retailers later this month.
Nexus 6P would come with a 5.7 inches WQHD AMOLED display and 518 ppi with Corning Gorilla Glass 4. Moreover, it would also have the fingerprint along with smudge-resistant oleophobic coating.
The Nexus 5X will have 5.2 inch LCD screen with FHD resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3. This smartphone like Nexus 6P will have fingerprint and smudge-resistant oleophobic coating.
The Nexus 6P has a all-metal body which is made up of “aeronautical grade aluminum” and Nexus 5 has a “molded polycarbonate” body.
Nexus 6P is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 Octa-core 64-bit processor, Adreno 430 GPU with 3 GB LPDDR4 RAM and Nexus 5X runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor hexa-core 64-bit processor at 1.8 GHz clock speed, Adreno 418 GPU with 2 GB LPDDR3 RAM.
The common factor is the presence of Android Sensor Hub in both the devices. This feature helps to detect movement on the smartphones and had a direct link with the camera sensors as well. This is believed to reduce power consumption as per Google. Another common thing is that both would have Nexus Imprint, Google’s new fingerprint sensor.
Both the smartphones also have the same 12.3 MP rear camera with IR Laser-Assisted autofocus and a 1.55 µm pixels size to ensure better pictures even in low light. However, they have different front camera. The Nexus 6P has 8 MP front camera and Nexus 5X has 5 MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture.
As far as battery is concerned, nexus 5X has 2,700 mAh and Nexus 6P has 3,450 mAh batteries. Moreover, while Nexus 6P has dual-front speakers, Nexus 5X has only one front speakers.
It is to be seen which one makes it mark in the Indian market.
