Google officially announced the two latest additions to the Nexus family by revisiting a former favourite and welcoming a new manufacturing partner to the party.

The Nexus 5 by LG was one of the most popular Nexus devices ever, so Google returned to the South Korean company to make the 5X, a mid-range, 5.2-inch handset. It contains a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 1.8GHz processor, the same as in the LG G4, and a reasonable 2,700mAh battery that supports Type-C and Fast Charging.

The 6P, meanwhile, represents a new direction for Google, trusting an up and coming Chinese manufacturer to make its flagship handset. This 5.7-inch monster sports a display running 518ppi and an enormous 3,450 mAh battery to keep it running.

Both handsets will ship with Android Marshmallow already installed, as expected, meaning that users can enjoy the benefits of Google Now on Tap and Doze. Both will also come with a 12.3MP rear camera, although Google was keen to stress the pixel size was 1.55 microns, which essentially means each one is larger than normal, letting in more light.

The 5X will cost £339 while the 6P will set you back £449. This does push the Nexus brand into the upper price bracket for phones, which will disappoint users as one of the key features of past Nexus devices is the affordability.

What do you think of the Nexus 6P and 5X? Would you be tempted to buy one? Let us know.
