If you are using a Google Nexus device now – take note of this news. Google just listed the end-of-support dates for their current Google Nexus devices, i.e. end dates when they will roll out updates, security updates and releases of new OS versions.

After a bit of teasing, Huawei Malaysia have sent out the save-the-date notices confirming that yes, the Huawei Nexus 6P is coming to Malaysia and as soon as 8 December 2015 (next week). No official pricing details yet (some say RM2698 but Huawei says to wait and see) but as a refresher, the Nexus 6P features tech specs that include a 2K resolution display, a fingerprint sensor, dual front speakers, USB Type-C ports and a 12.3MP rear camera with super large 1.55-micron pixel Sony sensor that can record 4K video at 30fps. It also comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box. Check out the video below for more recaps.

As expected, Google have announced their latest additions to the Nexus series of smartphones with the Huawei Nexus 6P and LG Nexus 5X. Both smartphones come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, a fingerprint sensor, dual front speakers, USB Type-C ports and a 12.3MP rear camera with super large 1.55-micron pixel Sony sensor that can record 4K video at 30fps. Quite obviously the Huawei Nexus 6P is the more premium of the two with an all metal body and 5.7-inch 2K or quad HD display. Measuring in at 159.3 x 77.8 x 7.3mm thin, the Nexus 6P features tech specs that include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 32GB/64GB/128GB storage, 8MP front camera and 3450 mAh battery with quick charging.
The LG Nexus 5X is no slouch either but tech specs are a bit more midrange with a Snapdragon 808 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage, 5.2-inch FHD display, 5MP front camera and 2700 mAh battery. Both of the new Nexus smartphones do not have expandable memory or microSD slots, don't support wireless charging and don't have Optical Image Stabilization. In any case, there are still no Malaysia release dates or pricing details just yet but the Nexus 6P is priced from $499 (RM2219) for the 32GB storage version while the Nexus 5X starts at $379 (RM1686) for the 16GB storage version. Both will be available on the Google Play store in the US but we expect it to start shipping out elsewhere starting from 19 October for the Nexus 5X.
