GOOGLE ANNOUNCES NEW NEXUS SMARTPHONES, PIXEL C TABLET AND CHROMECAST
With the Nexus 5X, Google seeks the two major complaints with last year's Nexus 6 which were the size and the cost. The reduced footprint leaves the LG made Nexus 5X with a 5.2 inch IPS LCD 1080 Display powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 with an Adreno 418 GPU and a 2700mAh.
The Nexus 6P retains the 5.7inch phablet size display of last year's Nexus 6. This year's Hauwei made Nexus 6P retains the QHD AMOLED display and the front facing speakers of the Nexus 6, in addition to an all metal finish.
Besides the Nexus smartphones, Google also announced a new tablet, the Pixel C, which ditches Google's usual Nexus naming convention for the Pixel tag borrowed from its ChromeOS line of laptops. The Pixel C which sports a 10.2 inch QHD LCD display toes the line set by Microsoft's productivity focussed Surface Pro tablets including a keyboard. The Pixel C is powered by a NVIDIA's Tegra X1 which is powerful enough to handle multitasking. The Quadcore processor is supported by 3GB RAM and a Maxwell GPU. The Pixel C also comes with the USB Type C port and starts at $499 and $599 for the 32GB and 64GB versions respectively. Unfortunately these prices doesn't include the keyboard which would set you back $149.
