As you’ve probably noticed, there’s not one but two new Nexus phones heading out to store shelves this year. As such, Google and its hardware partners, LG and Huawei, have create a couple of advertisements for the new phones. The two have been running on US television lately, to help convince you that these are the handsets to buy this year and put the Nexus brand out there.
While Google’s Nexus TV ads might not quite have the charm of Samsung’s, they do offer a good look around the exterior of the two smartphones and a quick rundown of the major hardware features. Interestingly, the latest version of Android is only given a cursory mention in the two videos, suggesting that Google is putting a bigger focus on hardware this time around.
For a quick recap, the Nexus 5X comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of memory and a 12.3 megapixel rear camera. The Nexus 6P is a slightly more high end handset, with a 5.7-inch QHD display, octa-core Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3GB of RAM and 32/64/128GB of memory, along with the same resolution rear camera and a higher pixel count in the front camera, 8MP vs 5MP.
Customers in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, India, Korea and Japan can already buy a Nexus 5X from the Google Store. The larger Nexus 6P is available to pre-order in some markets and should also go on open sale very soon.
What do you make of these advertisements and the new Nexus phones?
