With the Google Pixel and Pixel XL phones officially announced already, we couldn't help but make some quick comparisons with the phones using our tech spec comparison tool. You can see some of our comparisons in the links below but clearly the Pixel and Pixel XL bring Electronic Image Stabilization and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor to the table, features which can be seen in both the Huawei Nexus 6P and ASUS ZenFone 3 Deluxe.

After the Nexus 6P, the Nexus 5X is the Google branded smartphone that many anticipated to arrive alongside its bigger brother, but alas only the Huawei-built device made to our local market. However, the tide may be turning, as there is chatter online that it will be coming this July, for only RM 1199.

The Nexus 6P has seen good sales in Malaysia, but Google announced two models of their Nexus smartphones when it was first launched. We may now soon see the smaller model in the Malaysian market, as the Nexus 5X has been sighted on SIRIM.

Android users who have the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow patch can now make purchases (yes, purchase) with fingerprint authentication in the all new Google Play Store. This includes the LG Nexus 5X, Huawei’s Nexus 6P and Honor 7, the LEAGOO Elite 1, or basically any handset that’s getting the Marshmallow (see the complete list). The finger authentication is a part of the revamped Google Play Store, and it’s very likely to be more expansive than this feature is in iOS with many third-party program supports.

The recently announced Huawei Nexus 6P marks the first time that Google and Huawei have collaborated on a smartphone together. It also marks the first 2K display smartphone that Huawei have made and it is also the higher-end Nexus device compared to the LG-made Nexus 5X. Featuring aeruonautical-grade anodized aluminum with diamond chamfers the Nexus 6P offers 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. Do you want the Nexus 6P to come to Malaysia?

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.
