Google announced its new family of Nexus phones and it’ll be powered by the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The new Nexus 5X is made by LG and the Nexus 6P is made by Huawei. They are also available on the Project Fi network.

The Nexus 6P is designed by Huawei and it’s the first all-metal body Nexus phone with a 5.7-inch display. The smartphone comes with a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor, 3GB RAM and the revolutionary USB Type-C port. The phone also features a fingerprint sensor at the back that will wake up the phone and work with Android Pay.
