On Tuesday, September 29, Google is hosting an event where it’s expected the company will unveil two new Nexus-branded smartphones: the Nexus 5X from LG and Huawei’s Nexus 6P. Leading up to that event, though, we’ve already seen a plethora of leaks surface out of the rumor mill regarding both devices, including the different colors each model will come in.
Now pricing has allegedly found its way online ahead of an official announcement. Based on reports published recently by Android Police, Google will price the Nexus 5X starting at $379.99, while the starting price for the Nexus 6P will apparently be $499.99. It’s worth noting that those prices likely reflect the variant with the least amount of memory available, which means the 16GB Nexus 5X and the 32GB Nexus 6P.
It’s expected that the Nexus 5X will be available in a 32GB model as well, while the Nexus 6P will allegedly offer 64GB and 128GB options.
The report also states that sales for the new Nexus smartphones will be online-only, which means there won’t be options available within carrier stores this time around, like there was for the Nexus 6.
The pricing looks to be more on the affordable side this time around, as opposed to the price tag attached to the Nexus 6 last year. That’ll more than likely be a welcomed return to form from Google, so it will be interesting to see how sales go later this year. As far as pre-orders go, it’s believed that Google will launch those tomorrow, September 29, after the handsets are announced. Based on the report, the phones will be available in the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, Canada, and Ireland to start.
